Purple and Green - Halloween

Howdy all you Bombshells out there in internet land. It is coming up on Halloween soon - a BOMBSHELL FAVORITE HOLIDAY. We are all a bit nutso about Halloween and Bombshell stamps has some wonderful Halloween type stamps for you.

Everything from Pirate ladies to Hula Girls, to Skulls, skeletons, etc. etc... Bombshell stamps are wonderful for those Halloween cards you want to make. I decided to use a few stamps for this card below.

I used Bombshell Angel for this card along with Halloween Costume Outfits. I love these outfits... especially this caped one. Gorgeous, and a lot of fun to color up (more on that later). The background print is not printed paper, but black paper with VersaMark stamped image from the Bombshell Patterns stamps, then embossed with purple and green embossing powder. I mounted these on sparkly green paper, and then on black card base.

I colored her up with all sorts of pretty puples and greens. For the purples I used a standard V12, 15, 17, 09. But for the greens I got a little more adventurous. That is YG13, 25, 67. I tend to color light to dark. So I start by coloring all the light colors in first, and layering on the dark and going back over it. For the Green on her dress I tried to make it a little more smooth, where the purple lining I wanted a little bit of texture, so I did a lot of streaking motions on this one. For some reaosn I picture the inside of this cape as royal purple velvet.

I think this is one VERY classy Vampire or  ready for a night on the town!

Thanks for joining me today for this, and I am pretty sure you will see a BUNCH more Halloween cards in the next few weeks.
