Frankie and Friends

Time for another Copic/Promarker (or any alcohol marker) challenge at The Outlawz. Our theme is “Halloween,” and please use your alcohol markers.

While writing this I just realized that Halloween is Monday! Yikes! We have done nothing with decorating. I also have to carve my Boris Karloff pumpkin. We have no pumpkins yet, nor candy! Yikes! Oh well, at least I got another Halloween project completed and I am now in the mood for Halloween. :o)

I hope you like this. I sure had fun with the coloring and the layout. My main images are from The Stamping Boutique, “Haunted Birdhouse” and “Frankenstein.” I colored with my Copics, of course. I used dies for my window and the grass. My background paper was made using Ippity’s rubber stamp sets “Fall for You” and ''That’s Creepy.”

Now the details:
Coloring: Copics, Spicas, and Gelly Roll pens;
Dye and pigment inks: DI in Gathered Stray and Black Soot, Ancient Page Coal Black, Brilliance Cosmic Copper;
Dies: Cheery Lynne Design’s Grass Border, StampingScrapping Diamond Nestibilities;
CS: Stampin’ Up!.

The challenges that I want to enter “Frankie and Friends”are:
Charisma Cardz Challenges – Anything Goes
Delightful Challenges – Use Purple, Oranges, Green, and Black
DYSU Challenge Blog – Halloween
Art with No Boundries - Week 4 Halloween
Divas by Design – Something Spooky
