SHOPPING OUR STASH #274 - Hey Ghoulfriend!

Hello friends and welcome! This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we challenge you to get in the Halloween mood, and make a Halloween card or project! Here is the card I made:

 here is the inside:

I've had this stamp set for a few years at least, and I have used some of the sentiments in it, but not the one on the card front, and not the image either. It was time. Although I had a heck of a time trying to blend the colors in the dresses, my crappy coloring job kinda makes the dresses appear made from a shiny, satin type material. (At least, that's my story and I'm sticking with it) 

I look forward to seeing what Halloween goodies you link up at Shopping Our Stash! For even more amazing inspiration, do visit the blogs of my teammates and our Guest Designer, Gina, and leave some bloggy lovin!

Remember, we are looking for Guest Designers! If you wish to be considered, all you need to do is leave a "DT" after your name when you link up! I hope you will!

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you have a great day!

  1. ok, see, i was thinking how COOL the skirts look & how dimensional!!! so there!!! (i have recently started adding colored pencil shading to marker-colored images, and having better success than when i try marker-on-marker which i can never get right. just mentioning it b/c i saw it on IG or somewhere... it hadn't occurred to me you could MIX coloring implements lol!) :) :) :)

  2. This is adorable! And I love their satin dresses! :D

  3. Fabulous card Chris, love the image. I don't think it's your colouring at all, I had trouble with a cardstock I used once, the ink didn't soak in and the next layer just sat shiny on top. (ditched that paper for colouring) I love your design with the two papers and doily awesome.

  4. Your colouring is great, silly person! What an awesome card!

  5. WHat a fun image and your coloring is awesome!! I love all the layers on your card too! Fa-BOO-lous!!

  6. Well green covers the G element at Just Add Ink. Such a fun image and beautifully coloured. Thanks for sharing at Just Add Ink.

  7. Ummm... love everything here. And you know witches: they're always wearing funky material... Haha! Those sentiments are my fave...

  8. This is a very interesting image - I'm wondering what they are talking about?? I love the book background paper. Chantell JAI

  9. Thanks for entering your fun card in our Just Add Ink challenge, Christine. I, too, love the patterned paper with the books (of spells?) on it!

  10. Chris, this is such a fun card that keeps you guessing as to what is the conversation between this two witchfriends.
    Awesome coloring and yes, their dresses appear to be of some shiny material, very elegant!!
    The pattern paper with the books is just so beautiful, perfect for this card, looking at it closer, all of this are Magic Spell books and I don't mean for a spelling bee, LOL!!
    Fabulous card, teammate.

  11. I think the coloring is great! It's a super cute card too! I love how you always do the inside too! Thanks for joining us at Naughty or Nice Challenges! Cyndi, DT

  12. Great card, Chris! Love the witchy image and sentiment! I love the inside too - is it possible to have 'cauldron envy'???? Jo x

  13. Sometimes we think that it'll be easy to color something but then the art gods prove us wrong LOL I think you did a really great coloring job! Great card and sentiments :) Thanks for sharing with us at NON.
