tsg179 happy haunting!

Over at There She Goes this week Kelly has challenged us to make a card or project inspired by the colours of her favourite drink - pumpkin spice coffee!

Isn't that just great - a flavoursome colour inspiration! Now I've never tried pumpkin spice coffee so I took my inspiration from those fall leaves to make a slightly different autumnal Halloween card.

I actually quite like the autumn colours paired with the Halloween reaper image - this is quite like our Halloween will be as the leaves are showering down on us at the moment and so pretty in their hues.

One last thing, yesterday I talked about the eyes on my mummy! Here's a close up to see the eyes and the way that the black enamel puddled into the wet glossy accents.

Now here's a look at the eyes on today's reaper - black enamel eyes with white enamel on top. This time I made sure the bottom layer was perfectly dry before adding the top layer - the result is some spooky eyeball popping fun!

Supplies: Stamps - There She Goes bugs & hisses, autumn; Inks - Memento tuxedo black, Versafine onyx black; Card - Stampin' Up basic black, Neenah solar white; Paper - October Afternoon weathervane; Markers; Ranger enamel accents black, white; Distress markers; Die - Memory Box woodland branch; Stickles glitter glue

You can tell you are the mother of boys, Debby, having fun with the ghoulish eyes effects! Loving your tongue-in-cheek spooky cards.

Gorgeous. I love the paper, the branch and tiny leaves you used to pair it with your reaper. LOVE the enamel eyes. Awesome card.
Hugs and smiles

This is SO cute, and those are some of my fave OA papers ever....I still have them in my stash too!

Pumpkin Spice lattes are my fave from Starbucks...I love this time of year when they are available!

OK, I am a fan but you really have me with the reaper. Inspired use of the branch.
