Halloween Candy Jars

I adore this Candy Jars image - it's just so fun to color and so fun to customize. Had to share this bit of genius - how to make the gumballs into eyeball candies! I used this set (Create-a-Cupcake) again - see those tiny circle stamps? Turns out they make great eyeballs too. Heh........ I stamped the second largest one in chalk ink (one is Tangerine, one is Lime Pastel), and then the smallest circle in Onyx Black, then did a little shading and highlighting with pencil. The highlights on the jars are done using acrylic paint.

This first card was one of the samples I sent for CHA - it has a button eyeball on it too! hee hee... The background uses the Large Paisley Cover-a-Card, and the sentiment can be found here.

The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils - these are the ones I used: I made a second card with the same idea, but a different color scheme... I used the CAC Bubbles stamp for the base layer, and the sentiment is here.
I used vintage seam binding and some black eyelash fiber, too. The coloring again is done with Prismacolor pencils:
Fun, huh?

Thanks so much for stopping by!
