Halloween is Hoppin' at Tiddly Inks!

Christy Croll is one of my absolute favorite artists, and I just adore her Tiddly Inks images. I discovered her through Stamping Bella and bought some rubbah images, then later found her online digi image store... the rest is history. I'm addicted. :)
So today I have 2 cards to share for the
I was DYING to make a black & white card, and I thought Halloween would make a good theme for this. But I love to color, and so I just had to make a card with some color in it, too. So this first card uses "Betty Belfrey" and I stuck with all black & white cardstock, DP, and embellishments. I used Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the buckle on her hat and clear gemstone brads along the side (all supplies by SU! except the button is from my stash):

For my colorful card, I used "Cast Your Spell" digi image. I used Basic Black & Whisper White cardstock by SU! along with DP in Pumpkin Pie & Basic Black. Ribbon by SU! and button from my stash:

I colored her using Prismacolor colored pencils blended with Gamsol and SU! Stampin' Write markers. I used Dazzling Diamonds & Orange glitter by SU!

Hope you are enjoying the hop - you should be able to find the full list of participants here. Good luck and have fun! Peace.
