Delightful & Frightful Frankie

Aloha all,

This past weekend I decided to play around with Samantha Walker's castle bendy card that I found in the Silhouette online store design ID #53879.

I've had this file in my stash for awhile now and never quite knew what to do with it until KBD made the super cute Charmkin Cutie-Frankie file.

I used my eBrush to add a two tone texture to the main part of the castle and embossed using a Tim Holtz brick folder. The red roof as accented with crackle glaze to age the roof and the turrets were also shaded in using my eBrush.

For the lower castle wall, I had to do some tweaking by making two duplicates, releasing the compound path, taking away the bricks, editing the points in the second duplicate, so that it left me with the yellow doorway and viola! I love the finished look.

For Frankie, I resorted back to my inks and chalks to shade in all the edges.
Confession time, I used more than one file from KBD to make this card. If you look to the left of the fence, you will notice a little spider sitting on a web. This spider came from KBD's Bride of Frankie. The moon, stars and arched cat came from KBD's soon to be retired Halloween house scene.

For the stamp sentiment I used Jaded Blossom's, "Too Cute to Spook" as well as their Fall dies sign post and combined it with the Halloween dies.
As you can see, the super cute ghost came from the Halloween die as well. To get her super cute facial expression, I used my stamp set from Peachy Keen Stamps labeled Sweet on you.

                       Too Cute To SpookFall  Dies
                                                Halloween Dies              
For Frankie and the other individual pieces, I went back to using my chalks and inks to edge the fine details. To top off the finishing touch to my card creation I used mini flat back beads by Taylored Expressions.

I hope you all enjoyed my card and thanks for stopping by.

Mahalo and I hope you have a scrappy day.
