"All Dressed Up" with CANDY

First I'll show you my Edwin + Halloween + Sentiment = All Dressed Up card.
I don't know about any of you but for me the struggle lies in picking the perfect papers!
I tried a couple different things here.
The sentiment came in a pack of chipboard pieces......I sanded it to give it a distressed look.
The yellow ribbon was actually white to begin with but after soaking it in on my So Saffron ink Pad from SU, this is the result. Little did the I know that the color I "died" it woul "bleed" onto the ric rak I placed on top.
(Scary enough wording for ya---wahhaaahhaa! [insert evil laugh] )

Cor, this is gorgeous. I love Edwin's colouring. His face is so real - even without a mouth, lol

You are so right about the BPs. I sometimes spend a couple of hours trying to find the right ones, and your's are spot on here.

Fantastic card! I love all of the little details! Thanks for joining us at Incy Wincy this week. Hugs, Kim

Kelly said...

Corry, your card is beautifully scary! Two questions: How long did you let the ribbon absorb the color before adding the ric rac? Just curious for future consideration. Also, how did you do the sentinment, it looks like cracked glass?
