The Grimm Reaper - Sassy Studio Design Mini Release Halloween Blog Hop!

Welcome to day 2 of Sassy Studio Designs's Mini Release Halloween Blog Hop!  If you didn't blog hop yesterday, boy, did you miss out!  Makes sure that you take the time to go back and see all my uber talented design team sisters fabulous work!  If you came to my blog from Regan's spectacular blog, then you're on the right track.  If not, head over to the Sassy Studio Design's blog and start things off right!  I don't want you to miss a thing!

The oh so inspiring Kim came up with a fun game of Bingo for us to do!  Here's the card and doesn't it look like a blast to do?  


I loved working on this challenge and ended up using the top horizonal line with bat, bird, spooky sign, fence, and spider web.  I am so luck to have been able to work with The Grimm Reaper and I think she's so spooktacular!  For my project I did a tri-fold card and made it into the shape of a


I colored her with copics and Spectrum Noir markers and added some stickles (yep, even Grimm's have to sparkle too!), to her dress and eyes.  They don't show up very well in the photo but they're pretty scary!  The papers are from K&Company's Halloween paper and the flowers are from Recollections.



I love this fence from Tim Holtz.  It's so scary and rickety looking!  I just thought the black and grey flowers were perfect!

Here's a close up of her.  I used some Goosebumps (appropriate don't you thing?!) all over her and that's what gives her hood such a shine.  The texture that stuff gives your image is out of this world!  It's the first time I've used it and I love it!  Isn't she just beautiful?  I think she looks very haunting.


 This is the first panel and you can get a better view of the fence here.


This is the left side inside panel with the bat and the moon.  Love it!


 Here is a better picture of this gorgeous creature going off to help someone meet their maker - or her!


I absolutely love this bird!  The paper pack had this great, dark paper with this gorgeous purple bling all over the branches.  You know I've got to love that paper with bling!


I hope you've enjoyed it.  I know there's a lot to see, but I hope you've enjoyed it!  Now make sure you hop on over to my buddy Lori's blog where I know you won't be disappointed!  If you get lost along the way, here's the order for the hop:
