I ♥ Promarkers Challenge #38 - Spooky Goings On!


The new challenge over on I ♥ Promarkers this week is sponsored by Digi Doodle Shop and the theme is "Spooky Goings On".

I've used this gorgeous 'Mummy Mouse' from Digi Doodle Shop for my DT project this week.  I don't know if it's just me, but the little mousie reminds me so much of the main character in the TV adds for Compare the Meerkats.com!

I coloured the image with Promarkers and added Glossy Accents on the pumpkin, to give it a little extra dimension, before cutting it out with a classic rectangle nestie.

The bottom layer was created by embossing a piece of white card with one of the Tim Holtz embossing folders, then rubbing Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink all over to highlight the design,  the orange/copper layer was embossed with the Cuttlebug Pumpkins folder.  I added Chipped Sapphire DI around the edges of the image layer while the die was still in place, to give it a sort of frame around the edge.  The gorgeous orange ribbon, bats and 'Boo' buttons I got from the craft show at Westpoint recently. 

I hope you'll enter the challenge this week, Digi Doodle Shop are sponsoring the prize.  Just create a new project and add a direct link to the project on your blog over on the I ♥ Promakers Challenge blog and one lucky winner will be randomly selected.  To be eligible for the prize draw, you must colour your image with Promarkers.  It's always fun to hop along to all your blogs to check out the projects, I love it!

There is an uncanny resemblance to the meerkats - a great image though and a fantastic card.

Great card- i love the embossed layers. The little bats are cute.
Hope you had fun in the US with Kathy and Karen and are now safely back home. You going to the NEC as well? You must be all shopped out for craft things now. (Is that possible I wonder??)
