31 Night of Halloween - Night 3

 


Welcome to Night 3 of the 31 Night of Halloween! It's Barbara Sproatmeyer with you this evening.  For my project I wanted to take an every-day image and convert it to a Halloween theme so I chose to use Polka Dot Pals Kezia. I think she is great for all holidays and especially for those warmer climates. I love ice cream so it's not jut a summer thing for me. I can easily see her with a Christmas ice cream cone just as easily as a summer one. 

 


To make this a Halloween theme, I used Halloween colors then added cobwebs and spider friends. For another idea on how to use this stamp with a Halloween theme (without the spiders), you can visit my blog HERE. And for a speed coloring video showing the background and spider webs, visit my YouTube channel HERE.


 

There are so many different ways to color Polka Dot Pals Kezia and here are a few of my favorites - including one with a modified cotton candy cone. Yummy! Each of these were stamped with a light ink color so I could color over the ice cream. If you want to stamp in a darker color and still do this, just wipe away the ink of the ice cream before stamping. There are more details and marker lists on my blog HERE and HERE if you want them.





If you're looking for more inspiration using this set then check out my blog HERE - her puppy is super fun to use with other stamps too. But if you don't already have her in your collection, I think she is a must have! You can add her to your cart here and support me as the artist and designer: Polka Dot Pals Kezia.
