Well folks, today is the last day of the Queen Kat Designs 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop. I sure hope you guys enjoyed all the wonderful creations of art and the ways you can utilize the stamps that Vikki carries in her store.
You should have arrived here from Janie's blog. If not, please go back and visit the Official Queen Kat Blog so you don't miss anything.
Also, today is the last day to make use of the coupon code for the blog hop. Just enter the code during checkout and your discount will be reflected in your total.
So, now that all the business has been taken care of, let's get down to the fun stuff. I do have one more announcement. I want to thank all of you who have visited my blog these past 13 days. I am giving away some blog candy to celebrate our 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop. Everyone loves candy right? And what better time of the year to give away some. So, here are the rules: 1. You must become a follower of my blog. That's pretty simple right. 2. Leave a comment on today's post. Please do not leave a comment as anonymous. I need to have a name in order to draw for prizes. 3. In your comment, please tell me what your favorite stamp has been during the hop. I doesn't have to be one of the ones I used. It can be from one of the other DT member's blogs. There are going to be two prizes. The first will be a Halloween grab bag filled with treats..no tricks. The second prize, or grand prize will be a GC for Queen Kat Designs. I haven't determined the amount yet, but I will let you know when we pull a winner. I will write all the names on pieces of paper and have my daughter, Kierstynne, pick the winners. So, I hope you decide to enter the drawing for these two prizes. I will draw the name on Monday morning, October 21, 2012. This gives you all weekend to enter. I look forward to seeing which stamp is the most popular.
Ok. For today's card, I tried something new. I made my first easel card yesterday. It was pretty easy. So today I decided to try a Twist Easel card. That also ended up being pretty easy.
I used a dark purple from Colorbok for the base of my image. I used Basic Black from SU for the actual card base. My DP is from Teresa Collins and the rest of the card stock is from Recollections. I inked all the edges of all papers with DI Vintage Photo. I stamped Edith by Maigan Lynn in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the image with colored pencils and OMS. I used a Sakura Glitter Pen for some highlights. I tried a new technique for doing black hair, and wow, does it pop. I really like the way it turned out. I gave her some smoky eyes and some bright red lips.
I added lots of black and orange buttons and three creepy spiders. I think next time I made a twist easel card, I won't make the twist part so large. But, all in all, I think she turned out pretty well.
For the inside of the card, I used another piece of the orange chevron pattern paper from Teresa Collins. I cut a piece of white card stock from GP for a sentiment box. Again, all papers were inked with DI Vintage Photo. I cut out a tag from the Teresa Collins Paper Pad that says Poison and cut it on a diagonal to fit the card base and used two layers of pop dots to allow the card to stand upright when opened. I added a spider web and spider rub on to the corner of the sentiment and added another little spider to the bottom corner.
Well guys, I hope have all enjoyed these past 13 days hopping along with us at Queen Kat Designs. Make sure you take the time to enter my blog candy drawing and I hope to see you back here real soon. Thanks for making our blog hop such a success. Have a great Saturday!!
