Wee & Whimsical...Thursday?

Yes, I am off a day again! Darn Monday holidays always throw me for a loop! :) Thanks for bearing with my loopiness.

Inchie Arts is sponsoring the current color challenge at Embellish Magazine, so I thought it would be fun to play along. The color combo is such a fun one, and I knew I definitely wanted to create a Lockhart Halloween card to go with it. This witch's legs image fits perfectly on a Twinchie (don't you just love that!), so I started by stamping it with Memento Tuxedo Black, then coloring it with Copics. I used a lot of Copic Colorless Blender on the background of the image - see how it is just a faint green? I just outlined the background space, then used my blender to pull the color in towards the center. After the coloring was finished, I added Stickles to accent a few places. It turned out so cute! The artist-quality matboard takes whatever you can dish out - and does so with blinking an eye! ;)

The "Haunt Couture" sentiment (one of Karen's new ones) was perfect here, too. I embossed it with Leaf Zing embossing powder (from American Crafts); the background of the card was done with this, as well. It really pops on the purple, don't you think? Black mats on all the layers really helped the pop-factor, too.

Such a fun color challenge! Thanks, Ashley at Embellish Magazine and Lisa at Inchie Arts for coming up with such a fun challenge.

Be well!
