It's Halloween at Sparkles!

Happy Monday!

It's time for another challenge at Sparkles Monthly Challenges, and this one is very apt for many of you around the world, for it's


Now most Aussies don't celebrate Halloween, although it is starting to catch on with some of the little kids going Trick or Treating around the neighbourhood, and generally upsetting my dog a lot with all the doorbell ringing! This year I won't be home to greet any little witches, fairies or Harry Potters, for I will be in Fiji.


For my Sparkles Monthly Challenges DT work, I of course purchased another Tiddly Inks image. My collection of these darling images is steadily growing - they are just too sweet for words.

This is Alison the Witch and you can buy her here. I coloured her with copics - first time I have ever coloured bright orange hair! I was a little nervous about using so much grey, but I am very happy with how she turned out. The edges were distressed with Tim Holtz ink in denim blue. I think I am now a fan of orange and dark blue together.

I have now started decorating the insides of my cards too!
