Tiddly Inks "Halloween in July" Blog Hop

Happy Halloween! It's a bit early I guess, but what a great idea to celebrate "Halloween in July"! I love making Halloween cards; it was a toss up between scary and cute, but I opted for cute when I saw this new Tiddly Inks image "Candy Avenger". Now that is the kind of super hero I would like to be! Do you see the evidence written all over her face, in the form of a Hershey bar?

The image is colored with pencils and accented with glitter. I used purple on her outfit and yellow on the pumpkin. Her dress is paper pieced; I also did a bit of sponging around the edges to add definition. The DP is by Doodlebug and I used a Cuttlebug Doodlebug die for the bat, skull, and candy corn. It was easy to make my own decorative pins; I just used straight pins and foam tape. The shapes are cut from Doodlebug sugar coated cardstock, but it is hard to see the sparkle in the photo.

Image: Tiddly Inks Digital Stamp
Ink: SU! Creamy Caramel, SU! Black Marker
Paper: G.P. 110, PTI Stamper's Select and Pure Black, Doodlebug DP and Sugar Coated Cardstock
Embellies: Doodlebug Glitter, Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Handmade Stickpins
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Cuttlebug Doodlebug Die, EK Success 3D Dots

This blog hop is a bit different than most. You can visit the Tiddly Inks blog and all the cards will be linked up there. You can just click on each different card to view them and comment. It officially starts at 6 p.m. Central. There will be prizes, so check it out!

I was the lucky player drawn for last weeks challenge "Match It Up". I received a $10 shopping voucher and was able to get some neat new Tiddly Inks Halloween images. Christy is offering a sale; 35% off orders over $15.

I hope you enjoyed my "Halloween in July" card. Thanks for stopping by!
