7 Kids Crafts: Boo is Helping out

Hello Everyone!

I know it has been a while since I posted. I'm hoping that in the next few days I can catch up and post a few more cards or Artist Trading Cards for you all to see.

For this card I wanted to do a big mash up of images from Sweet November Stamps. I used a mermaid called Treasure (I believe she was a vault image), I cropped her and I drew a long skirt and for her arms and torso I just colored it both dark gray and black to give her that corset look with a long sleeve shirt. I used Free Witches Hat (literally it's currently free $0.00), I used Boo's Pumpkin and Tabitha (which comes in a set.)

Treasure (vault image)

I colored everything with Copic markers except the "gold metallic marker pen"

Here's a little background on Boo's Pumpkin: "This darling little specter can be found haunting the pumpkin patch every October night leading up to Halloween. He is searching for only the biggest and best pumpkins out there because those special gourds make for ideal jack o'lantern carving."

When I first saw Boo, I knew I wanted to put him in a scene helping out mom. I didn't want him to actually be a ghost but to be dressed up as one for Halloween. I chose Treasure to be the Mom because she looks as if she's ready to catch the big pumpkin, as Boo is bringing it to the front door. I also loved the way her hair is flowing and you can tell it's a windy autumn day. I used my own door as reference (it's actually not wood nor that color lol) but I wanted an open door. Then I added a brick siding in various Yellow-Reds and Earth tones.  Oh yea, I colored little curious Tabitha as a black tuxedo kitten sneaking next to Treasure to see what is going on. I hope you enjoy this card as much as I enjoyed creating it.
