It's freebie challenge time at Dude Time Doodles! I know how you all love freebies, so you aren't going to want to miss out on this one! Hurry on over to Dude Time Doodles, grab the featured freebie image and play along with us for your chance to be a Dude Time Doodles guest designer! (It is so much fun to be a guest designer! Don't miss out on your chance!)
Today's featured freebie is Gavin Ghost from Dude Time Doodles and Bonibleaux Designs. He's a fabulous ghost and so fun to create with!
My card uses the sketch at Sketch N Stash for the card layout. I used a fun mix of these new Halloween papers, and then made a drippy border with the drippy goo punch by Martha Stewart. After all, what's a ghost without some drippy goo?! Gavin Ghost is colored with Promarkers. I did some sponging around the image with yellow and purple inks. The brads are from my stash and were originally black and white.
This brings me to a little tip for you, today. You can alter brads and other bling my coloring them in with alcohol based markers or paints.
I used my Promarkers to alter these brads and make them the colors I needed to match my card.
How's that for a fun tip?!
