Trick or treat, smell my feet...

Mornin' folks!

I'm running a bit behind this morning as I get ready to head off to work so this will be a quickie. :)

So I'm still making headway on getting the images from past videos off my desk and onto cards. I'm determined that I'll have all the Halloween ones done before Halloween actually comes and goes, LOL! Today I've got the Spooktacular Mummy from TGF all colored up along with the entire scene that I created when I did the masking video a while back. This one is really all about the coloring so not a lot of paper or embellishments fussing it up. The sky is colored with Copic marker BV23 and then to smooth out the streaks I just put some colorless blender on a scrap of terry cloth and dabbed it all over giving it a nice mottled appearance that looked much more sky like. If you try this technique just be sure to do that step first so that you don't accidentally dab colorless blender all over the parts of the scene that you want to stay smooth, like the houses and that cute mummy here.
I also drew a small candy pail for the little trick or treater to really finish off the entire scene.

Okey dokey, time for me to scoot... thanks for stopping by... Oh! And Carisa has a new hair coloring video up at Color Me Copic today so be sure to check that out too! :)
