Halloween card 2

I have another Halloween card to show you today. I've used a Tiddly Inks image on this one too. I love the Wryn character. She's so adorable and reminds me of one of my nieces <3. And of course this card is for her. My sweet little redheaded Norwegian-American girl <3. Papers are from the Graphic 45 "Happy haunting" collection. I've used a die from La La Land craft for the spider webs and covered the webs with black soot distress paint and glitter. The skull flower is from making memories and the roses from Prima. Ribbon from May Arts and Really reasonable ribbon. Corked vial and wish bone from Tim Holtz.

Paper piecing

Saturated Canary have paper piecing as a challenge this week. I've never tried this technique before, but it was quite fun. Used the "Hatress" image and paper pieced most of her dress using design papers from Graphic 45's Hallowe'en in Wonderland collection. Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, Prima and Petaloo. The metallic flowers are dyed using a mixture of Arabic gum, pigments from Luminarte and Distress Ink refills. Key hole and chipboard from G45, metallic leaves from Prima mechanicals and ribbon from RRR. Distressed edges of the papers and inked with Distress Ink - Gathered Twigs. Colored with Copic markers. Used this week's sketch from Sketchy colors.

Hair: E41-43-44-47

Saturated Canary - Autumn

I love summer, but I have to admit that fall is my favorite season. <3 And the color palette fits me perfectly. I always end up buying loads of fall papers and fall stamps. Today I'm sharing a card where I've used the rubber stamp called Autumn from Saturated Canary. Design papers are from the Walking in the Forest collection from Maja Design. I've also used a swirl die from Magnolia and a punch from Martha Stewart. Most of the flowers are from Prima. I've colored the image with my copics of course.
