Happy Halloween - I've got a spell for you!

>> Saturday, October 31, 2009

Ok, so my card for you today is totally not halloween themed.... though i had originally planned for it to be! Oh well! I'm very happy with how it turned out. But then what in the world does my blog post title mean? Well, over at Paper Makeup Stamps, it's week 5 of the Countdown to Christmas sale. In honor of this spooky day, ALL spellbinders are 31% off. They'll probably go fast, so if you are looking to pick any up, get over there now!


Here is my card using the always fabulous Mojo Monday sketch. I've decided that i love the mojo monday sketches so much, it's going to be my goal to do it every week! :)

Here is the sketch... and if you want to play too, go to THIS POST to check it out and upload your card!






Here is what i did with the sketch...





After my friend Tina made THIS card i've been aching to get that cutie patootie snail inked up.

So this was a lot of fun... now here's



Stamps
Ashlie's Solo Snail and Snail Mail Sentiment from Paper Makeup Stamps

Coloring: with Copics
Snail Shell E30, E21, E33
Snail Body E33, E35, E37

Paper:
All from the scrap bin, gotta love that! But i'm pretty sure the blue is the new In Color teal blue color (forgive me, the actual name is totally escaping me!), the darker teal and dark brown are from hobby lobby and the lighter brown is definitely walnut from Bazzill)

Tools and Accessories
Nestabilities Standard Circle and Rectangle, Scalloped Rectangle, Petite Scallop Circle
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder
Brands from Recollections BUT they werent the teal color i wanted, a lighter brown and lime green so i colored over it with a BG09 copic marker
Ribbon from American Crafts

Inspiration
Mojo Monday 110 and Tina Hale

Love that color combo and use of the mojo sketch with this sweet snail. Great idea to make the background with the repeated saying. Your coloring is always superb! :)
