A little something to get you in the Halloween mood...

Recently I was asked to play along with last week's sketch over at the Get Sketchy blog. I had so much fun with the sketch that I ended up making two cards. I kept with a Halloween theme for both, but one is more of a "pretty" card and other one is more "fun".
First is my "pretty" card.
I painted the tips of the flower with Shimmerz Vintage Wine from the new Fall Vintage Collection. This shade of Shimmerz goes perfectly with Pink Paislee's Twilight Collection.
It adds just the right amount of color and shimmer to the flower.
Next is my "fun" card. I used Shimmerz Spritz in Licorice, also from the new Fall Vintage Collection.
I sprayed it on the blackboard bat pretty generously, and it pooled towards the bottom of the bat giving it a shimmering eeriness.
I love the way it turned out!
Well, that is it for me today. Hope you my little cards help to get you in the Halloween spirit. Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

Great cards, I especially like the first one. Thanks for the reminder to add a little paint to my flowers. It is beautiful here and ties in so well to the paper and card. Thanks for sharing.
