Monster Mash Party Hop

Hello Crafty friends,

***I'm late :( yes, I know I suck... which is why I chose a vampire (j/k) lol that was a coincidence*** AND please be nice this is my first "Halloween card."

If you're coming from: Irene Sherman  http://irenescardcreations.blogspot.com/ then you're in the right place otherwise start at http://simplybettystamps.blogspot.com/2012/09/monster-mash-party-hop.html

I used Simply Betty (digi) Stamp Verity Vamp and Boris the Bat I chose to color her in in warm grey tones following one of Ms. Betty's YouTube tutorials... this is also my first time using this technique. I only have a very small supply of Copic markers so I substituted the colors with my Spectrum Noir markers. I make my own paper roses and for some reason they always seem to come out different.... For these rose petals I used my Cricut but the leaves I used a Spellbinders die.

The card- Ta-dah! (I got that from Betty's video lol)

Close-up* small elements colored in with Sakura "Red Star" for that shimmery look.

My own paper roses.

Enlarged and cut out an element from Verity Vamp's top hat 
to tie-off the rose bouquet. 


Happy hopping and thanks for visiting ;)

Crafty Hugs,

Katya Bess
