Spooky greetings, crafters! I hope you are enjoying a wonderful Halloween – if you celebrate it – and otherwise I hope you have a great day with your family. Today is my last little bit for my mini Halloween coloring series and the last day to make use of the Kit and Clowder discount coupon, so hurry to not miss out on this great opportunity!
My card uses awesome free digital stamps by Useless Trinket, which I printed on Copic friendly paper (please, do check my FAQ before drowning me in questions about printer, paper, and ink) and then I had my Scan n Cut cut them out for me. The clear and closed outlines make the images easily recognizable and so it was no problem for my machine.
I wanted to practice coloring a dark edge and then blend into a lighter color and I was very happy with my results. It did take a while, but because I printed the monsters a bit larger, I could color more freely and didn’t need to worry too much about tiny details. Nice perk!
I’m so happy to see how they pop against the black card base, and I had to use my Sharpie pen to add some nice bright white dots to make the background within the frame more interesting. Add a little Glossy Accents on top of the heart in the center and you are golden.
I’m sending this card off to the following challenges: Addicted to CAS and More “Monsters”; Addicted To Stamps and More “Make Your Mark”, Creative Friday “Spooky”, and Simon Says Stamp “Anything Goes”.
Coupon for Kit and Clowder & Grande Prize
I have an in-depth review of the classes I took here, if you want to check that out first.
Use the code julia10 to get 10% off when you purchase a class at Kit and Clower. The coupon is valid until and throughout October 31. You can apply this coupon to all full coloring classes (“Hair and Skin”, “Clothes”, “Perfecting Pencils”, and many many more), but not towards the Create And Learn monthly subscription. If you are a Create and Learn subscriber already and want to purchase previous monthly classes, you can use the coupon for those, though.
As a Grande Prize Alyce will be giving away a full coloring class for free to one person who leaves comments on my little coloring series for Halloween (part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5). If you have already purchased a class with the coupon, you can get a full refund for your purchase, so no reason to hold off! The winner will be announced here November 1.
Just because I feel some of you don’t realize this, I am going to repeat this: You can use the coupon ALREADY to buy a class! Should you win the Grand Prize, you can either get another class or a refund for the one you already purchased. Don’t hold back 🙂
