IO CHA Blog Hop- Day 5


Today is the last day of the Impression Obsession blog hop.  I started the week with a Leigh Hannan Halloween card, and I am ending the week with the same. 

I thought the Ghost Espresso image (E2455) was a lot of fun, and I always like to make coffee cards because they make me think of my mom.  Hi mom! 

To color the image, I used some Copic markers.  I decided to make the ghost/steam grey so that it would show up well (rather than leave it white).  If you can't read it from my picture, the cup says "It's Scary Good."  Also, you can't see it from the picture, but I added a bunch of sparkle to the ghost with my clear Wink of Stella clear glitter pen.  To finish the card, I added the Happily Haunted saying (D14148) and a few brown pearls.

Don't forget to check out the other designers in the blog hop for a chance to win prizes.
