Devilish Divas Halloween Blog Hop Oct. 20-21

Welcome to the Devilish Divas Halloween blog hop!  This is a Halloween-themed hop sponsored by Kenny K Downloads One lucky winner will win their choice of FIVE digi’s from the Kenny K Downloads store along with a fun Halloween goodie bag sponsored by me.  Details on how to enter are at the bottom of this post.  Here is a brief bio on our sponsor:

Digi and rubber stamps from KennyK are a fun and edgy way to add the perfect dose of attitude and style to all your creations!

The creator, the artist, the man:  KennyK is a NYC-born professional illustrator who has brought his funky-but-slick, urban-influenced look to the cardmaking and papercrafts world.  His signature style can be seen throughout his various collection of pinup babes, sweet ‘n sassy girls, cool rockin’ dudes, kid’s stuff, retro characters and more at Kenny K Downloads.

Now, on to my project:

I created an easel card featuring Scarlett West as a ghostbuster. I remember when the movie "Ghostbusters" came out. It was a huge hit. So was the theme song. I remember everyone singing "Who you gonna call? GHOSTBUSTERS!!!" LOL!

So, with that in mind, I included the haunted house digi also from Kenny K. I inked the background with TH Distress Inks in Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed. I left the moon and the area between it and the haunted house white to make it look like the moon was glowing. The sentiments were computer-generated. The cute little ghost in the corner is a png image freebie from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. I highlighted him with a gray Copic pen. It's hard to see in this pic, but I added a tiny bit of Glossy Accents to the ghost's eyes to make them pop a little. The iron fence is a Memory Box die.

I colored Scarlett with Copic pens and then added some Black Diamond Stickles to her hat, Glossy Accents to her buttons for some dimension, more Glossy Accents on her boots for that patent leather shine, and a little bit of sparkle to her skirt with a Sakura pen. Here's a closeup of Scarlett the Ghostbuster:

The scallop trim at the bottom of the orange paper is actually from another sheet of Halloween paper. I just fussycut it and adhered to this paper. The bats and the Happy Halloween stamped sentiment are from a Halloween set by Waltzingmouse Stamps.
