New Challenge at Dilly Beans.

This weeks Challenge over at Dilly Beans is to use Purple, Black and Pink. Well when I read the challenge list I was looking at the wrong date so I am a little off in my color choices. I have the purple and black but not so much pink. So sorry but it is a little late to start over and I really like this. I love the background which really does have pinks in it. I had made these papers about a year ago and came across them when I was getting ready for my garage sale.Yummm. I couldn't remember exactly how I got that effect but I sat down last night and experimented. Before I show you the newest pieces though Here Is my card for the challenge today.
I used Megan's new Halloween images # 476 Me & Pops and #474 Little Monster. How adorable are these?
 I colored the images with copics and used Glossy Accents on the eyes to give them some shine.
 The inside of the card.
So the background is made using white acrylic and Distress Stains along with some perfect pearls.
When I tried this again last night I used the Tim Holtz Distress Stain(white) and then dropped some ink refills around on top of that and then laid a piece of Black Glossy paper face down into it, lifted and then repeated the technique again. I dried it a little then I sprinkled on some perfect pearls and sprayed that with water to set it. On some of these I added some Judi Kins Diamond Glaze and glitter.

I really had a lot of fun making the papers and as always I loved coloring Megan's images. Now run along to the Dilly Beans Designer And Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the Design Team has to share for today.
