I am always drawn to oranges, purples and greens which equal Halloween for me!!  It is my favorite Holiday and I just love all the lil pumpkins, black cats, ghosts & goblins, well just anything pertaining to Halloween! LOL  I got my inspiration from Kristina Werner, she is one of my favorite paper crafting artist! She has awesome tutorials on her youtube channel, go check her out here if you haven't yet! Here is my card:

I used several stamp sets for this card. (see below)  I stamped the frog and pumpkins (I masked the pumpkins with a post it note each time I wanted one to 'go' behind the other and to stamp the frog so he looked like he is behind the pumpkins) with Versafine onyx black ink and colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  But before I colored the frog and pumpkins I used liquid masking fluid to cover them, once that was dry I then watercolored the background with Tim Holtz Distess Ink pads and splattered white paint on top. I put glossy accents on the frogs eyes.  The speech bubble is from Cricut Design Space and the sentiment is stamped in Versafine onyx black ink.

Here are the CDD Products I used:

Happy Celebrations

Farmers Market
Rain or Shine
I hope y'all will come and join us!  We love seeing your creations!

Thanks for stoppin' by!
