Left of Center Creative Challenges – (Day 31 – 31 Days of Halloween)

Well, here we are at last….October 31st….Halloweeeeeeen!!!

A huge thank you to all of you who have stopped by my blog every day this month as part of the 31 Days of Halloween. It’s been an amazing experience (not without it’s stressful moments) and I am so glad that I took part. I have read and enjoyed every comment that I have received and have been totally inspired by the Smeared and Smudged community all month, so thank you again, and I hope that we continue to cross paths throughout the coming year. (Just a reminder that you can follow me by email or on Bloglovin’ – sign up boxes are to the right——> )

On to my projects…..I did mention earlier in the month that I was being over creative and have finished the month with a surplus of makes-  so it’s a bumper post today to reward you for sticking with it and visiting me all month.

Firstly, it’s ‘Halloween’ at Left of Center this week and we are sponsored by Smeared Ink!


I have used the creepy Rusalka available here.



I coloured the image with Copics and Promarkers before layering on black and white card. I used some foiled halloween paper and an offcut of Basic Grey paper for the background.



The sentiment is from Ginger’s House (edged with Festive Berries Distress Ink) and I finished with a Memory Box Weathered Fence die cut.

Secondly I have a card (currently flying over to Canada!!) with the elegant Madama de la Noche by Rick St Dennis, available here.


She is coloured with Copics and Promarkers, then layered onto some Graphic 45 papers. I used an EK Success border punch to trim the strip.

Inside the above card is an ATC, I’m not going to completely ruin the surprise as the recipient is one of the wonderfully Wicked Bloggers – all I will say is that it one of the following!!! (All are Dilly Beans images coloured with Promarkers)

Next up is a door hanger that I created for the Simply Betty Stamps FB contest, good one side, bad the other:



Finally, another FB contest entry – this one is for Ching Chou Kuik’s group:

Thanks for all your support and well done on sticking with me until the end………HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!
