Halloweenie Diva Two-fer...

You're probably going to be sick of this stamp set by the end of this post, but I just couldn't stop coloring :) I went with my buddy Cindy's idea about going Halloweenie with the Diva... I LOVE IT!!! The first one is my favorite... probably because there is more 'stuff' on it :)

Stamps: Haute Couture (retired), Spooky Swirls (soon to be retired!), Glitter Goblins, This Girl
Paper: Mulberry Meadow cs (retired), Penelope cs, basi
c black cs, Premiumn White cs
Ink: Noir & Orangerie Palette
Colorant: Prismacolors & mineral oil
Other: Crystal Stickles, orange sheer ribbon, misc. jewels

How uber-cool is she?!!! I like how the moon balances out the whole card... before I added it, there was FAR too much white cs showing!

It looks like the 'spooky' medallion is popped way up because I had knotted the ribbon prior to attaching the medallion. I might go back and pop up the moon, too... I just don't know yet.

The second card is far more simple-looking. It was a bit of a pain to cut around some parts of the image, but I am so glad I did! The ultra wide black ribbon was another HL bag-o-ribbon find, and the feather was plucked from a boa.

Add a little Cutterbee Bug piercing, Black Stickles, and misc. jewels and
BOOM!
A little gothic Diva :)

I also used TAC's Mini-Bet (goth) and a VersaMarker to add shadows. She was actually more difficult to color than the others... I don't know why... maybe because it was REALLY late last night (early this morning?).

Anyway, there they are! My Halloweenie Divas. I haven't made the wedding diva yet, but once I do, I won't bore you with it :)

What do you think?
