Fun Halloween Background + Video



Halloween!  What fond memories - from my childhood and when Lauren was little we threw the funnest Halloween parties, complete with games and trick or treating.  Last night, Lauren told me that Louisa is going to be a skunk this year.  I'll have to see if I can put together a skunk Halloween card!


These critters aren't skunks, but they are adorable!  I had a lot of fun coloring them.  The mummy rabbit is so cute!


The background on this card is really cool!  It's basic distress ink blending with a layer of microfine warm highlights glitter on top.  I've got a video showing this technique and a few tips along the way.

Here's the video:




With Lauren getting Louisa's skunk costume from Pottery Barn Kids, I don't have to make a Halloween costume this year.  I wouldn't mind making one, but I'm kind of glad that's one thing to cross off my list.  What are your Halloween plans this year?  

Thank you for stopping by!

  3. I really enjoyed watching you create that adorable Halloween card on your video! I just love the beautiful shimmery, shiny background (I can just picture it on a Christmas card, snow scene, moonlight, fireplace)! The little characters are darling and your coloring is perfect!

  4. Absolutely adorable, I love your card, such fun with overload cuteness. We don't celebrate as much as you do, here in the UK, but I have made cards for a family nearby who do celebrate.
    Hope you all enjoy your "spooky" time LOL..

  5. that is just too cute and the glitter showed up wonderful in your video, that made for a very cute scene, I am with you sometimes I don't mind the white around an image and other times I would rather it be trimmed closely, those little items are tricky not to cut off though.

  12. LOL Don't think I've ever heard of anyone going as a skunk. I'm sure she'll be a hit. You have colored those wonderful Stacey Yacula critters beautifully. Her images are always so full of character.
