It's All About the Candy!

Hello Friends and thanks for visiting my blog today.  The project today is a Halloween Card that sums up what Trick or Treating meant to me as a child...It's All about the Candy....and the costumes!

My card features an excited Trick-or-Treater equipped with his Candy Bucket and Flashlight.  The image is the boy version of  All About the Candy digital image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  
If you're not familiar with the art of Mo Manning, you have to visit her shop and check out all the lovely images she has listed.  She is truly talented and I love all of her designs.

I've colored the image with Spectrum Noir Alchol Markers and fussy cut.  The sentiment is included with the image so I wonkily (is that a word?) fussy cut around it and colored over it with the same shade of blue as the highlight used around the image.

The patterned papers are from the DCWV "Witches Brew" 6x6 paper pad.  I die cut a black mat using a distressed edge die, mounted the image and sentiment on craft foam for dimension and lastly added Dark Purple Amethyst Rhinestones from Kat Scrappiness.

This little fella isn't too scary is he?  Until next time, Happy Crafting!
