I decided to make a Halloween card. Normally our neighbours come round at Halloween with their children trick or treating but sadly they have had to move out this year so not sure who will get this card!! I have used Crafty Ann's new orange and black backing papers - they are soooooooo yummy. I printed out two different typed and also used a scrap of a orange mottled stone Crafty Ann's backing that I had - yes I know I am supposed to be using up scraps but I didn't have any orange/black - that's my excuse!!!!
I have used a gorgeous Sweet Pea image that I won in a challenge recently. It is gorgeous. I have coloured the image with a mixture of Promarkers/Copics. Around the edges I have distressed with Tim Holtz's Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Black Soot distress ink pads. In various places on the image I highlighted with Sakura Satrdust clear pen. All the papers I have used have also been distressed/grunged. I used a bird stamp which I stamped in Black Soot and used a waterbrush to bleed the colour to make him more crow-like. I used a scrap of brown paper and tore it into a shape like a branch and highlighted the torn edges with a brown Promarker and then sat the bird on it. The small piece of orange/white paper has been resist embossed. The card is finished off with a sentiment off the computer, three different ribbons and some ready-coloured flowers from Crafty Ann's which I have grunged with Tim Holtz's Black Soot distress ink pad and the centres are sparkly/glittery Papermania glitterations.
