Trick or Treat Day 3

So far so good. Three days in a row is pretty good for me.
Let's see how I'm doing once we hit the double digits.

Today I have a super creepy cute image from Aurora Wings.
I made a page in a Halloween themed paper bag album 
that I started last year. Can we say pro-cras-tinate? 
Better late than never....
Check out these two Trick or Treat Boys.
They look like they're up to no good in that cemetery.  

I just love this image!! So much fun to color up with Copics.
I tend to always lean towards the brighter shades of color for
most of my makes. This is no exception. Gotta make that image pop
against that neutral background dp from Martha Stewart.  

Let's no forget their four legged friend who is very
much in the spirit of things. Such a wonderfully sweet detail.   

After coloring everyone, I trimmed them out and added glossy accents
to the candy apple of death and the brain cupcake. Those things are
supposed to glisten, right? Mission accomplished.  
I die cut a Spellbinders cemetery scene, highlighted it with purple 
Inka Gold rub, and did the same with the MS bat fence, but used green
metallic rub instead. I popped pretty much everything up on foam dots 
to give a nice 3D feel to this piece.

One more page done in my Halloween album.
I think I may actually get it finished this year. 

Be sure to check out the showcase post with all of the
amazing variations of this image made by the Showcase DT
at Aurora Wings Showcase blog. Thanks for having me ladies.  

Thanks for swinging by today.
I'll be back tomorrow with pics of my Halloween schtuff,
and a cool card, too!
