OooOoooOoooOoo...

Hello and welcome fellow ghouls!

Today the hauntingly beautiful Ghost Willow is appearing on the scene to add just the right amount of eeriness to any Halloween card. You might think I'm crazy but this is my favorite 'incarnation' of Willow yet! Even though she is called Ghost Willow I can see her making a pretty cool sorceress, witch or Druid priestess all depending on how you color her up. To get this more ghostly look I stuck to a very limited color palette of the lightest BG and G Copic markers then I added a bunch of sparkle to her gown with a Copic Spica clear glitter pen (I think I even managed to get some of it to show up in the pic this time).

The rest of the card is really simple as all I needed in terms of pattern paper was this 'old as the hills' DCWV paper... isn't that a spooky backdrop?! Add to that a few bats, some 'star' gems and this cool sentiment that I printed out and voila... not a house that I would like to visit on a dark Halloween night!

The Lil Haunts will only be released as digi stamps and all four will be available in the Tickled Pink Store on Saturday. As always if you want a chance to win this ghostly ghoul all you have to do is leave a comment on the Tickled Pink blog today... BUT if you want a chance to win the entire set of four on release day then leave a comment at TP and on all of the participating Pink Ladies, Pink Spotlight, Pink Celebrity and Pink Party Guests blogs..... WOW that is a lot of {PINK} but SO worth it! ;)
