Halloween

Now there's a subject I didn't ever think I would use on one of my posts. But we had a theme for the Bellarific Friday challenge this week, no more sketches for a while, and the theme was either halloween or fall (autumn as we call it here).

Seeing we don't 'celebrate' halloween here I was a bit nervous at first cause I had never done a halloween card, I have no halloween theme paper nor embellishments, BUT I do have Stamping Bella halloween stamps - only cause they were so cute I had to have them. See sometimes an obsession can work out in your favour, lol.

This little witch, or Bewitch-a-TUDE as she's better known, was coloured with the usual prisma pencils, blended with grumtine, then the image was cut out with nesties and mounted on 3D foam. I added a little glaze to the buckle on her hat, and that was pretty much it. Seems like it should just take 15 minutes to do, but no, I am not that lucky, I take quite a bit longer to colour and put a card together... I am hoping one day that WILL change - hehehe.

Don't forget to head on over to the Bella blog to see all the wonderful creations by all you talented people out there! It is always so inspiring to see what everyone comes up with, if only I had the time to try all those wonderful ideas :-(

Bellaland is also going to be very busy tomorrow for World Card making day. Linda and Paula are going and they'll be teaching class, and I won't be there and that is SO not fair :-( ...... but I am sure no-one wants to hear me moan so I'll keep quiet now.

Oops I nearly forgot, Beth Norman did a Reader of the Week article on me, I can't believe I'm so important it was such an honour, so if you're interested go check her blog.

Now I'm off, got to get to work some time today! Have a GREAT Friday!!!!
