Wednesday’s Color Throwdown

swatch 164
This great halloween color combo is courtesy of Broni! This is my first halloween card this year! Doesn’t look like I’ll be mailing out any this year. I still love making them though…such a fun holiday!
I used this fun digi image from Tiddly Inks by Christy Croll called Cast A Spell. I base coated the image with Copics then shaded with Prismacolor pencils and oms. The patterned paper is from a halloween Recollections pad that I picked up in Michaels last year. The cute sparkly bat is also from Recollections. I picked up several packs of these halloween charms and I hope I get to use a few more soon! I wish I knew who made the sentiment, but I found it loose with some of my other stamps and it’s unmounted rubber that hadn’t been trimmed yet. I think I picked it up last year at a local stamp show. There are so many occasions to use that sentiment besides halloween, lol!

I used lots of glitter on her wings, dress, and from her hands. I also painted around the image with Shimmerz in Angel Wings. Hopefully you can see some of the sparkle in this close up below.
