CAPTIVATING New Watercolor Medium

Happy Halloween!

This is one of my favorite holidays, and I'm really hoping we get a lot of trick or treaters. But if not, we have lots of FULL SIZED candy bars to give to a good cause. Don't skimp on Halloween, y'all. I still remember this freaky dentist on the street I grew up on who gave out toothbrushes and those tablets that you chew and they make your teeth red wherever there's plaque.

He was like the harbinger of people thinking commenting on things on Facebook changes the world. YOU AIN'T CHANGING HALLOWEEN WITH YOUR TOOTHBRUSHES, BRO. YOU'RE JUST MAKING KIDS SAD.

ANYWAY - I'm not sad because I love Halloween and I'm going to make a lot of kids happy tonight.

I have been hanging onto this stamp set for a while because it's so perfect for Halloween/Dia de los Muertos - and all of the sudden - there was a new Inktense product that was PERFECT for painting this card! If you love Inktense as much as I do - although that doesn't seem possible - you will love this travel-friendly new format. I love my pencils and my blocks, but they definitely aren't something as easy to travel with as this is. You'll see a video walkthrough below. I paired this with the couldn't-be-more-perfect sentiment from this set.

I love how you can customize all the little haunts in this set. I felt like this combo I made was the Halloween version of "paint me like one of your French girls" and so it cracked me up.

I hope that you get lots of fun, costumed kids at your door tonight, and if you don't, I hope you chose your candy wisely so that you will have a gift that keeps on giving.

Here's the video!



  1. Which Versafine Claire Brown would you recommend?

  2. Cute card! Love the keylime, blue and red together! Such a great pairing of image and sentiment! We need a megaphone about the commenting on FB! Life is too short to be so angry. Sheesh! We can be creative without giving away tooth brushes! I wish we would get trick or treaters! Happy Halloween my friend!

  3. FRIGGIN HILARIOUS! I struggled to see what was her pose..... I thought it was a crawling skelebaby .... NOW I SEE IT!!!!! 😂😂😂 I passed this sentiment, my humor needs a Lydia hug to kick start it back into shape! HAPPY HALLOWEEN

  4. I love your little being card Lydia. How perfect for Halloween. I'll have to check out those Derwent watercolors.

  5. ❤️❤️❤️ 🤣🤣🤣. “You can still be pretty even if you still just have a skull head.” -Lydia Fiedler
