Passion for Promarkers #13 - Pumpkin & Prussian

Hiya, are you all set for Halloween yet? well over at Passion for Promarkers we are :)

This week's colours are Pumpkin and Prussian with a Halloween theme, chosen by Sarah. I have to admit I wasn't too thrilled to begin with - I don't normally make Halloween cards or decorations, but boy this was actually lots of fun.

So this week you could win a £10 voucher to spend at 

Remember, to be in the prize draw you MUST use the challenge colour promarkers (this week its Pumpkin & Prussian) predominantly on your creation AND you must also stick to any other criteria stated (this week its a Halloween theme)

I don't have a huge selection of Halloween stamps or images, and rather than go out and buy some I decided to trawl the internet for free images - I've found the best way to do this is to enter something like "print and colour Halloween" into google. So the image I have used is from Hello Kids.

First I made the wee trick or treat sweetie bag, but I thought that was too easy so I made a matching card...

Image: from Hello Kids, coloured with promarkers; Pumpkin for the pumpkin - I shaded it with Mandarin and did the lighter lines on it by using the blender pen. Prussian for the witch's hat, dress and cape and also for the monsters tongue (again I used the blender pen to add texture) Lime for the witch's tights, sleeves, patches and the monster, Grass for the witch's eyes, hair and parts of the monster. Warm grey 3 and 4 for the cut out parts of the pumpkin. And finally magenta for the lollipops.

Pumpkin paper is Rusty Pickle, Adams Family - Grandmama. Black Magic core'dinations card was used for matting the image on the gift bag (cut using circle scallop nesties in the cuttlebug) and also for the spiders web on the card - I did this using the spiders web cuttlebug embossing folder and sanded the raised areas. Orange core'dinations card was used to mat the spiders web.

The lettering was cut using the cuttlekids Fairy alphabet dies, purple ribbon is dovecraft, the fabulous wee greeting buttons I won the other day from Whimsie Doodles

And last but not least I made the wee spider charm by drawing a spider freehand with black promarker onto shrink plastic and then heating to shrink it. Then I attached it with metallic thread.

I thought you might like to see a few close-ups of the image and the fab greeting buttons from Whimsie Doodles....

So, pop on over to Passion for Promarkers and see what the other DT members have done to show you.
