TGF Alter-Ego Draculaura

Hello Folks,

Here is the card I created using two different TGF stamps.

My inspiration was my daughter Jade and her love for Monster High characters (especially Draculaura.)

I used Copics to color her up. 

I also used TGF's couch from Sitting Cute! and I drew in pink lines because Jade says, "Draculaura's furniture has to be pink and black."

Okay this is how I used Cheeky Geeky and Cheeky Rockability to make my Draculaura.

Close up all colored up and glued up. I love it and Jade does too. LOL I might make some of her other favorite Monster High characters for her. 

Thanks for visiting.

SBS Secret Pumpkin Swap Blog Hop

Happy Halloween My Crafty Buddies!

Today there is a big blog hop and you it's the big day to reveal who our Secret Swap Sisters were....

The Secret Sister that was to send me a "pumpkin" was Stacey Stratis and boy did she spoil me.

 Look at all of the awesome goodies Stacey gave me. Wooo hooo!
Socks that'll I'' be wearing on more that Halloween night. LOL Lots of embellishments. Paper Smooches paints I really wanted to try those for so long that I opened the box and completely forgot I had to take pix first. LOL Love my paper stack already used several papers from it. 

She made me this really nice card 
AND altered this tin can. Isn't that super neat?
Thank you very much Stacey I love everything!
The crafty lady that I sent goodies to was Heather Whitlock.
 and I hope she likes everything and is useful for her. 
I had a fun time buying some of the things I got her but for me too. LOL

Here is my project for Heather.
I painted a box and added the digi stamp Betty provided us for the swap.
Her name is Kitty Boo Betty.

The altered box lid.
I colored her with Spectrum Noirs and Prismacolor Pencils.
The pumpkins and wagon are an SVG cut file from Miss Kate's Cuttables.
Everything else is Acrylic paints, Stikles and Sakura Stardust Pens.
Sorry for the glare...

Hi Everyone,

Joining today Day 7 of the 13 Day's of Halloween  at Simply Betty Stamps.
I finally got to work on a card.

This is Dark Fairy Brittany
You can find her here:

The Challenge was all about Skeletons and Bones and use Black, White, Cream and add another color if you'd like (I chose purple.)

Here is my "Bone Chilling Fairy" card- hope you like it.

I used Copic markers and Copic Atyou Glitter Pens to color her. 

Skin: E00, E01, R20 (Cheeks) and E11
Shirt: C3, C5, C7 & C9 AND C3 and E01 for the see-through areas

Wings: C3, C5 and C7 / Silver 12 and Pitch Black 23 (glitter dots)
Bone hairclips: W1 and blender
I used a Sakura Pigma Sensei to make the wings veiny

All designer papers are from DCWV The Spooky Time Stack 6x6 papers
