Halloween Bobblehead Mini-Card Set

So far I have spent the weekend totally updating my etsy site.  But yesterday I did take the time to create these little Halloween Mini-Cards.  They were so much fun to color!  I have to say that I am really liking the smoothness of the X-Press It paper with my copic markers.  Besides the high only complaint is that sometimes it gets a little sticky spot if I use a lot of ink blending.  Like if I go back over a spot over and over again.  Since I am still experimenting with the different brands of paper for copic markers-I would love to hear from everyone-what brand works good for you?

These adorable little Halloween Bobbleheads are digi images from Bugaboo Stamps.  I bought seven of them in a pack last year and just hadn't gotten around to playing with them yet.  But yesterday I printed them out. 

Needing an eighth image-I found the Bobble Head Kid Kitty.  She seemed perfect for Halloween.  I paired the images up with some paper from DCWV (the Midnight Spell Stack). 

For those that are interested here are the copic colors I used:

For skin-E50, E13, E11, E00, E000 and R20 (The lightest colors for Dracula, the darkest for the Devil and some rosy cheeks for the Kitty Cat and the Princess.  For Frankenstein see the greens below!)

Whites-E50, E41, E40
Greens-YG25, YG23, YG13
Blacks & Greys-C9, C7, C5, C3
Purples-V17, V15, V12
Oranges-YR68, YR15
Blonde Hair-Y28, Y26, Y21
Brown Hair-E37, E35

Thanks for stopping by!
