I fall to pieces...


I hope all is well on this fine summer day. It's been pretty hot here in my neck of the woods and so far I haven't managed to make any time to go jump in the lake. I'm thinkin' I need to remedy that situation ASAP, LOL! ;)

Anywho... it's another review preview day over on the ATS blog today and even though I didn't make a card for it I still had this fun Frankie Stein card that I made for previews and never shared here. So she is perfect to go up today. Frankie is so cute and quirky that I couldn't resist playing a bit with some of the neon Copic markers to give her a spooky glow. I added neon green to her hair, neon orange to the pumpkin pail and neon violet to her dress. At first I was a little like, "What did I just do!" but when I paired her up with the bright stripes of the Doodlebug paper it worked, so I could breath a sigh of relief. The skin tone is that funky E70s combo that I like to pull out for Halloween and all of my little un-dead ghoulies. I've gotta say that I always look forward to Halloween cards because they give me the freedom to really go crazy with more 'out there' color combos, which totally gets me out of any creative rut I may find myself in. 

Ok, so there are plenty more Mashi's Muffins to peruse on the ATS blog today and get you inspired to try something new and different on your cards. :)

Looks like she's still wondering what you did to her LOL. Have to agree, though, that the coloured image and those papers are a perfect match.
It's consistently 30+ °C over here, but I'm blessed with a private pool, so I manage to jump in at the end of my working day. Will do so again in about an hour!
