HALLOWEEN On The Spectrum Noir Blog

I am GIDDY with excitement this year and am ALL OVER Halloween party design ideas!!!  So for my feature today on Spectrum Noir's blog, I featured THIS little guy:

ISN'T HE GREAT!?!  He's actually an old image I bought from The Octopode Factory, but for some reason never used (silly me).  He is PERFECT for this treat bag place holder!!!  Here's a little tip for those who might want to give this one a try for an upcoming Halloween party.... color the image, scan it and then print multiple copies.  It is a WHOLE lot easier than coloring a ton of them for each and every guest.  Well, of course, unless you really love your guests and want to give each of them something you personalized for them.  But depending on your guest list, that might be A LOT of coloring!!! hehehehe!

Here is a list of all the Spectrum Noir markers I used:
Rabbit, Trousers and Shoes:  GG1, GG2, GG3, GG4, GG5, GG7
Ears and Nose:  BP6, BP1 and PP2
Hat and Shirt:  EB8 and OR1
Cup and Teeth:  EB8, TN4, TN2
Shirt and Socks:  PL1, PL4
Boarder:  GB4
and finally......
Eye:  DR7, DR3, Blender
Yeah, let me show you the eye!!!

For the bloodshot eyes, I just touched the tip of a toothpick to my alcohol ink marker nib and used the tip to draw the ultra find details.  The wood of the toothpick holds a good amount of ink and is the perfect tool to get the job done.  Blood shot eyes have never looked better!  I also used the other end of the toothpick to tap in an outline of a stain on the teeth using TN4 once I was finished coloring the image.  Sometimes it's all in the details.... the creepy fine details!
