Katerina Koukiotiss Halloween Magic!

Good morning folks. I've finally managed to sit for long enough to colour up an image and make a card for this fortnights Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge. The theme is "Scary", so we want to see your Halloween creations using Sweet Pea stamps.

The prize this time is two sweet pea stamps supplied by the lovely Lynette, and two gorgeous decoupage sheets
from the equally lovely Amy for the random winner!!!

I have to say I was itching to join the girls for this challenge as I'd got a new stamp that was begging to be inked up (plus I've been bored silly whilst convalescing)!!! Isn't she gorgeous??? I think she is now my favourite Sweet Pea!! Well until I ink up and colour the next new one and things could all change again :D

 Now I know that on first inspection my card  doesn't look scary, but take a closer look - loads of bats! Uurrggh - shudders!

  19. Hi Claire, so sorry it has taken me so long to come by and leave you some love for your awesome creation you entered into our In A Sweet Pea Dream Challenge of anything goes and our Are you the Nest Card Designing Superstar Contest. This so beautiful and I love the way you colored her. The pumpkin she is setting on is colored PERFECT and looks just like the pumpkin embellishment (not for sure if you colored the little pumpkin or if it is a pre-made embellishment, I can't tell the difference. This is awesome Claire. I say that every time I color a sweet Pea image them I color another one and then it's my favorite. We have so many images that it is hard to pick jsut one favorite. I just love them all.hee,hee. Good luck.
