Halloween Witch

The topic for this months ATC Swap at the ACT Stamp Artist meeting is bats, witches, and Halloween. Had fun colouring this witch with my copics and love the way it turned out. She really stands out against the distress ink background. Short post as I still have some cards to finish tonight as I am busy tomorrow and need to get some sleep for an early start.

Gerda Steiner Designs Monthly Digi Challenge.

Love you Pumpkin

I made it for this months challenge. Hooray. Has been a very busy month and this is the second card I have managed to do. Just don't know where the time has gone but at least this one is ready to go. The free image is this gorgeous Hedgehog and he has the most adorable grin on that cute face. I coloured him with copics then cut him out with a MFT die then adhered it to my background. Made this by stamping with a background stamp from Darkroom Door called fallen leaves that I coloured using distress inks to give it an Autumn feel. I added two orange strips to this panel then attached it to the brown card base. The sentiment was computer generated then cut out using a Mama Elephant die and attached to the card. I thought it was missing something so die cut some hearts with an old cuttlebug die and used mounting tape to add them on the left corner and one onto the sentiment. These have glossy accents over them  for a nice shine.

Outlawz Progressive Freebie Challenge

Autumn's Splendour

The image for this months challenge is this Autumn image donated by Gerda Steiner Designs and it was so much fun to colour. Gerda has so many cute images as well as clear stamps and her critters are just gorgeous. I decided to make a scene so added this Make it Crafty tree, drew in the grass and then coloured it with my copics. I wanted to have a feel of the cold weather that follows Autumn and happy with the way it turned out, especially the sky. The PP is an old scrap from Hot of the press and added some burlap over the top of it before adhering it to the card base. I then adhered the matted image with mounting tape to the base to give it some dimension. A touch of Wink a Stella clear to the hat trim to finish, though it does not show on the photo.
