Halloween-a-thon Day 1!

So I've challenged myself to post a Halloween project EVERY SINGLE DAY in October!!! Now for those of you who follow this blog and are used to LOOOOONNNNGGG dry spells without a post, you know what a big challenge that will be for me. But I have so many cute Halloween stamps and Cricut cartridges that it would be a shame NOT to. So here we are at Day 1:
This stamp set was one of the very first SU sets I ever bought when I became a demo. It retired that same year, 2001. I also made my 2nd swap ever with this set. I love it and will never sell it. I also realized that I have yet to show off my "skills" with CO-pic markers that I paid a lot of money to learn. I have been practicing a bit, and I think this image turned out pretty well. I don't have any dark grey copics, so their shoes are colored with chalks and a blender pen. I colored another of this image that I liked but colored outside the lines a bit and was unable to fix it to my satisfaction. I plan to cut it out later and use it for something else. If anyone is interested in which copics I used, exactly, I will let you know. I don't have very many! I've been buying them one at a time with HL 40% off coupons, so it takes a while LOL. CS is SU Pumpkin Pie and Gina K Pure Luxury layering weight white. Ink is Brilliance Tuxedo Black. These were some of the recommended paper and ink for coloring with copics. Thanks for stopping by!
