Halloween In July

Ok, so this little gem took on a life of its own while I was coloring this cute little Victoria Case stamp called Magical Sophie. Now maybe it was the name of the stamp, or maybe it was the colors that I chose while coloring her, but this card ended up being one of the coolest Halloween cards I've ever made.

Now you all know how much I adore Halloween (don't you?), so isn't this image PERFECT for me!?! I had a blast coloring her too! Although I'm decided that I need to find the perfect paper for Copic coloring. I've been using Gina K, but with the amount of ink that I "lay down", I'm finding that the Gina K paper isn't holding all the ink that I use. I'm starting to get some pooling... which you can kind of see on this card here. I was just told about some Xpress-It paper (out of AU) that is supposed to work a lot better, but unfortunately, its not here in the US yet! DANG IT!!! I need to get my hands on some GOOD paper to use with my Copics. That's the new quest! I'll keep you updated....

Well, I think I'm done babbling today. Be sure to head over to The Town Scrapper and check out all the wonderful design creations from our Oh-So-Talented Scrapettes. The Town Scrapper is currently running some specials so feel free to kick Phebe (the owner of The Town Scrapper) an email at

awesome card Danielle, love those Halloween colors, such a shame they are only associated with Halloween as I love that color combo. Great job on the coloring, and love that Ms punch border.
