Happy Day At Meljens!.

Morning everyone... Happy Thursday... and a Happy MelJen's Challenge #184: Scaredy Pants!!! And Happy Halloween!!!

I've been spending this week getting ready for some of our sponsor spotlights on Open-Minded Crafting Fun and making some cards! I'm setting up a table at Bailey's school's Fall Festival on Saturday! I'm going to see if I can sell any of my cards!  We'll see how that goes.. I've been trying to get some Christmas cards finished up. I ordered business cards, but I'm not sure they are going to get here in time. So, that is what I've been doing this week ;)

Here is my card for our Scaredy Pants Challenge!







I had so much fun making this Tri-Shutter Card!! I used a few different Meljen Design images. I had so much fun coloring them all, decoupaging, adding glitter and diamond glaze... it was great!!  So, here is what I used:

Bibble Bubble Cauldron:  Colored with the Copic below. I added Picket Fence Distress Stickles to the brew and also Key Lime Liquid Pearls. I used black ink around the edge of the image. I decoupaged the bubbles, the brew, the handle, the flasks, the worm and the frog.
   Black:C1, C3, C5, C7, C9
   Frog: G12, G14, G16
   Brew: YG00, YG01, YG03
   Yellow: Y15, Y18
   Worm: R22, R20
   Purple: V12, V15, V17

Crazy Broom Witch:  Colored with the Copic below. I decoupaged the broom, hands, and her outfit.
   Purple: V12, V15, V17
   Gray Hair: C00, C01, C03, C05
   Black: C03, C05, C07, C09
   Broom Stick: E13, E15, E18
   Broom: E23, E27, E29
   Green: G12, G14, G16

Jar of Eyeballs: Colored with the Copic below. I covered the glass portion with Diamond Glaze and I decoupaged the tag.
   Cork: E50, E51, E55, E57
   Tag: E51, E55, E57
   Eyes: B02, B04, G03, G05, E23, E27, V12, V15, R24

Witchy Brews: Colored with the Copic below. I covered the glass portion of the bottles with Diamond Glaze, I also used some Frosted Lace Stickles around the doodles. I decoupaged the four (4) different brews.
   Labels: E51, E55, E57
   Toadstool Fungus: YG00k YG01, YG03
   Witch Brew: V12, V15, V17
   Frog Breath: G12, G14, G16
   Deadly Shade: C05, C07, C09
   Cork: E50, E51, E55, E57

Bottle of Poison: I decoupaged the bottle and covered the glass portion with Diamond Glaze. I colored with Copic.
   Poison: G12, G14, G16
   Cork: E50, E51, E55, E57

Haunted House: I colored this last image with the Copic below. I decoupaged the house and the ghosts.
   House: E23, E27, E29
   Tree: E74, E77, E79
   Black: C3, C5, C7, C9
   Moon: E50, E51
   Grass: G12, G14, G16

The papers I used were from a Doodlebug Pad - Halloween Parade. I used two stamps and heat embossed them purple against the black cardstock.  I know! that was long!! LOL  But it was so much fun and the halloween images were a blast to use!!!

Susan, what an absolutely fantastic Halloween project! It's both a card and decoration, for sure. I can't even imagine how much planning and time and work went into this, but, in the end, it is certainly worth it. As a blogger, I can also appreciate how much time it took you to prepare this post. Well done on both counts! Good on you!!
