I am so super excited to be able to announce that I am now on the Design Team for Besties International Challenge Blog. I have been following the challenges for some time now and never thought I'd get the chance to join such a super talented group of crafters able to share with you the lovely Sherri Baldy's images.
Today is the start of a new challenge for October which is Halloween. So for this challenge I chose a never before used by me precoloured image of (I call her) Professor Bestie, which can be found in mybestiesshop.com/store/p3559/May_color_printable_CVDV_1.html . I think she is mixing up some kind of Love Potion don't you think!
I chopped up a spooky tree by Tim Holtz and added that and hung a few pumpkins from it. Then I cut a couple of book sections from the Graphic45 Rare oddities paper to add to the side of Bestie then I added her after rounding the edges and inking. I don't know if you can tell but I 3'd her head and the bubbling flask (which I added glossy accents to).
At the bottom I added a pumpkin boarder which a very kind Cathy Knight loaned me to use at the recent Merly Impressions crop. I mounted it on black card and then ran some dotty ribbon round which I kind of thought looked similar to that on the image.
To finish off I cut a couple of sentiments from another Graphic45 sheet and matted those on black and added to the top and bottom.
I have to say I'm quite pleased with the way she came out today! Now it is your turn to join in to win some fabulous prizes. But first head over to the rest of the talented design teams blogs to see what wonders they have made for us all.
