This is one of the DZ Doodles images I colored with my Copics last weekend at the 15 hour crop I went to with my sister. I wish you could see this in person. I added Spica clear on my ghost trick or treater and it adds just the right amount of sparkle to his Halloween costume. This image is called Ghostly 2 and is available at DZ Doodles.

When I started, I decided right away I wanted to create a black & white card for this image. I added just a touch of blue to match the blue shadow I put around him. I started out with black cs (CTMH) and stamped the base in white daisy ink (CTMH) with the marble texture cube from Stampendous. The pattern paper is from Su called Night & Day Specialty.

Before I matted my ghostly figure to breeze cs (CTMH - retired), I stamped the solar white cs (Neenah) with the same marble texture cube in black ink (CTMH). I used black hemp (CTMH) to tie the trick or treat charm (unknown) to the main image then pop dotted the image to the black pattern paper.

The BOO sentiment is from the Hallow-Scream stamp set (CTMH) and I traced over it with a white gel pen (SU). For the third time, I used the marble texture cube in white daisy ink on my round tab (SU).

I placed the bats (Martha Stewart punch) so it looked like they were flying by the flourish on the pattern paper. I finished the card with the black pearls (Mark Richards).

One of the best parts about creating this card...I was watching a scary movie while creating. Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!
