Our Craft Lounge Blog Hop & Candy!

halloweencatajhWelcome to Our Craft Lounge Blog Hop! Hope you have enjoyed all the sneak peeks. I am showcasing Mummy Crossing today. (Details below on how to get your name in the drawing for it)

Mummy Crossing 

And since it is Friday, I also did Our Craft Lounge sketch. The sketch is brought to us by Holly:

Holly-OCLDT27

I pulled out some Rusty Pickle Halloween paper that I've been hoarding and used it for my background and strips. Colored the image with prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits. Distressed the edges with scattered straw and black soot. Added some ghosts and black cat confetti.

For my second card, I used copics to color the image and did a little out of the box with the cat. Used My Mind’s Eye paper and Martha Stewart border punch on the bottom and some ribbon in the middle.
