Special Guest - Michelle Bala

Hello again!
I'm back for a second post as a Guest Designer 
for Whimsy Stamps!!!!

I am using the stamp sets Candy Corn Dress Up, and Going Batty
I also used some dies, Kinetic Curved Basics, Kinetics Curved Hills, and
Stitched Cloud.

I had a lot of fun creating this interactive card using the Kinetic Curved Basics Dies.
I used Bristol Smooth Cardstock and distress oxide inks in the following shades:
wilted violet, evergreen bough, fossilized amber, and black soot. Then I added some splashes of water and splatters of white and gold paint.

I colored up Going Batty with Copic Markers in shades of
V12, W0, W1, W3, and B000.
For the moon I used a circle die and colored it with C0, C1, C2, C3, C7, and W5.
I heat embossed the sentiment and added some googly eyes to
the moon bat. I added clear stickles for shimmer.

For this next card I inked up the Stitched Cloud Dies with hickory smoke.
The colored fence with antique linen and vintage photo inks
and the field with mowed lawn.
I used tattered rose for the sky. I added some accents
with Copic Markers.

I colored up images from Going Batty and Candy Corn Dress Up with Copics:
YR04, YR07, Y11, Y15, Y17, G000, G02,
E23, E29, C1, C2, C5, V01, W1, W2.

I heat embossed the sentiments and added clear stickles for shimmer.

For this last card, I used Prismacolor pencils and Copics to shade in
Candy Corn Dress Up.

I colored the unicorn cutie with the following Copics: YR02, YR04, Y11, Y15, BG49, BG09
V01, and V05. I added Stickles for shimmer.

Thanks for stopping by for a peek!!!

Hope you enjoyed this post!!!
