Hello everyone and happy Thursday!  Today I have a Halloween card to share with you. 

I used a Meljen's image called Quilted Boo.  I colored my image with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol.  My papers are K & Company and Bazzill.  I used the Martha Stewart spider web punch and added some ribbon and a button to finish it off.  This image is a freebie from Meljen's Designs and you can find it at here.

Meljen's also has a new release today so make sure you head over to the Meljen's Designs Challenges and Inspiration Blog to check it out.  You'll also want to check out the new challenge and the awesome projects created by the Design Team while you're there.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Emily Keaton said...

This is absolutely adorable, Anita!! I love your bright Halloween colors :)

I wanted to ask you a question about using digis since you also use the Prismacolor/Gamsol method for your coloring--do you use an inkjet printer or a laser printer to print your images? And do you use just regular card stock to print them on? I have very limited experience with digis, but the one time I used one I found that the printer toner smeared when I used Gamsol. Do you have any problems? Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks a bunch, Anita :)
