Hope your weekend is going well so far. Today seems to be flying away with me! I have spent all morning cooking up this card, don't know where the time goes!
After publishing my Flutterby Fairy yesterday, I twiddled with the original Fairy and made a Halloween version, complete with Pumpkins, webs, and even a wee spider (yuck!) I wanted to do this image for the challenge at Haunted Design House, as this week it is 'Jacko-Lanterns'. Sorry hun, only a few wee ones on here - hope that's enough for you, LOL. 'Halloween Fairy' is now available for purchase in my Delicious Doodles Shop.
I have used the sketch from Mojo Monday for this card, but used a rounded edge oblong for the image, as I didn't fit well in the oval shape:
BUT I have included the oval behind the main image - hope that is acceptable? My sentiment reads: 'Have a spook-tacular day!' It's a bit of a wobbly typeface, but fits the bill here.
My colour palette isn't the usual Halloween colours either. I have used the theme at Crafts and Me which is 'Black, Pink and White'. Yeah, sorry about the orange pumpins, but I haven't ever seen a pink one, LOL.
My image is coloured in with the usual watercolour pencils, and I scanned her into the compy afterwards so I could print out a few times for some layering. This fits in with the challenge at The Pink Elephant, which this week is a recipe: '3 Layers, 2 Die-Cuts and Ribbon'. My ribbon is a pink organza and is behind everything else. The two die-cuts are the Bat and Spider in the top corners, and the layering speaks for itself!
My paper has been on the compy forever and I can't recall where I got it, but I printed it out in black on a magenta base. The frame for the image is a paper I got from a halloween set at either Raspberry Road, or Little Scrap Garden, can't remember which (useless aren't I?) The pink mirri strips came from the local craft shop, and I used a MS border punch on them. The Bat and Spider die-cuts came from ebay a couple of years ago. I added some wee gems for a bit of bling, and some clear stickles to the image for some added sparkle.
Right, still need to finish up on some DT stuff, housework, DIY, more sketches, etc, etc. . . See ya later folks!
