I'm showing it now, however, because it is my latest DT card for Alphabet Challenge Blog. Another fortnight has passed already and the new challenge is...
S for Soon to be Halloween!
And here it is...
And it is of course an easel card!
The gorgeous image is Batty from Tiddly Inks - it's the perfect time of year to use their quirky slightly dark images - well, it's the perfect time of year every day! I've finally got my pro-markers back so I thought I'd use them for a change!
I used Pastel pink, Blush, Oatmeal &Sunkissed pink for the skintone. Burnt orange, Bright orange, Honeycomb, Olive green, Pear green & Aniseed (flexmarker) for the clothes. Black, Cool grey 5, 4 & 3 for the hair and shading and Ivory for the edges. I then finished it off with a bit of black prismacolour pencil.
The papers are from the Basic Grey Eerie paper pad. I have used a load of Doo Hickey's on this too - I've finally got myself a swirl and the flower and tag (on the inside) are also Doo Hickey's. I couldn't resist adding some swarovski's to the fabulous swirl! The sentiment and the bats around the edge of the image are from Waltzing Mouse Halloween Party set and the sentiment has been punched out with a Stampin' Up! punch.
The inside has a couple more stamps from the Waltzing Mouse set on the tag and the ribbon is from my stash. Anything and everything has been destressed with a bit of black soot distress ink.
So that's it! I hope it hasn't scared anyone too badly - I had my scare last week when I discovered my blog had been hacked! :O But thankfully it's all better now.
Why don't you pop over to the Alphabet Challenge Blog to see the other DT's fab and spooky creations!
