Halloween Luminary

Hi Stampers!

This is my SECOND post today! Be sure to scroll down or click here for my earlier Loves Rubberstamps Post. This week is my team's turn to create some inspiration for the new Crafty Sentiments Designs Challenge! This week we want to see projects with the theme of ... HALLOWEEN! I love Halloween so I had fun with this one :)

Here is my project...

I created a Halloween Luminary! This side features the adorable Wizard Charlie. I colored him using Copics and just a few spectrum noir markers (the oranges and 1 green DG2) . The bats are from a Stampin Up! punch that I have. I ran the vellum through my crimper to give it some added texture.

This is what both the sides look like as you start to turn it.

And this is the side opposite of Wizard Charlie. This is the super cute Jasmin - The Witch  that I also colored with copics. Both of my images and all of the bats are popped up using dimensionals.

AND here is what both the sides look like when it is lit up...


For my pictures I did not have a flameless candle which is what you would want to use in these so I used a tealight candle just to take the pictures. You would NOT want to use a real candle in this 
 or you will start a fire! 

I also wanted to share with you some CRAFTY SENTIMENTS DESIGNS news...

I have to say that I have seen all 8 of these new images and you will definitely NEED them all!! They are all so super cute - trust me...you will NEED them :) That gorgeous Angel is one of them that will be coming out :) Starting on Saturday on the Crafty Sentiments Designs Inspiration Blog - you will get to see some sneak peeks and Suzette lined up some amazing Guest Designers this round so there will be some serious eye candy to look at! 

If you are here in the U.S. we do carry Crafty Sentiments Designs in our store AND I am placing a huge customer requests order in on October 23rd! I will list the 8 new images as soon as they are released on the Crafty Sentiments Designs website so you can add those to any others you want as well. I have a coupon code for you to use and all the details about the Customer Preorder on the store page.

 Thanks for stopping by today and I hope to see you play along with us in this week's Crafty Sentiments Designs Halloween Challenge!
