The challenge this week at Lil Lolita Boutique is to use skulls and I combined it with the 5th Day of Halloween challenge from Simply Betty Stamps using ghosts. I made this card and bookmark combo using the new Lil Haunts Frankie and set it up using the Alchemist Chamber as the background.
As a final touch, I added Crystal Effects to each bottle to make them look more like glass. Here’s the bookmark separate from he card. If I could go back, I’d trace around the yellow moon sense it’s hard to spot. 😀
Only a portion of the Alchemist Chamber was used on the card. This was my first time coloring something where the source of light was constantly in a different direction so that was an interesting challenge! I didn’t even see one of the candles until I was already on top of it – luckily I was already using a lighter color.

Did you know? The International Date Line (IDL) is a generally north-south imaginary line on the surface of the Earth, passing through the middle of the Pacific Ocean, where the date changes as a ship or airplane travels east or west across it. Crossing the IDL traveling east results in a day or 24 hours being subtracted, so that the traveler repeats the date to the west of the line.
