Halloween is Hoppin' at Tiddly Inks

Today I have a card for the Tiddly Inks Halloween in July Blog Hop! No, I'm not suddenly on the DT - anybody could join in, so I did!

I just recently found Tiddly Inks and I couldn't resist getting a few! Here's my card:

PeekABoo1
I used Peek A Boo Bugg and some fun papers from My Mind's Eye. I colored the image with Copics, then paper pieced just the orange part of the pumpkin (coloring over the paper with a dark green Copic for the tendrils and with a bit of orange for texture), popping it up with foam boosters. Lastly I sponged in some ground and all around the edges.

The giant scallop border is my own creation - I punched out 5 circles, then stuck them down to a strip of paper and used that as a template to trace onto the dotted paper and hand cut it out. The sentiment was also hand cut from one of the papers. It just said BOO!, so I wrote in the "peek a" part, and then the wording was off-center so I drew the little swirly thing underneath to balance it out. I hope you like it and have fun with the Hop! TFL!
