I don't know about you, but I just LOVE the colors of Halloween. They are so bright and colorful. And this card is no exception. I fell in love with this adorable digital image from Digi Box Designs called Digi Fall Ghost. Isn't if just the cutest!
I colored the ghost and the sentiment first with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and then enhanced the colors using my Prismacolor pencils. I LOVE using these two products together. I can get the most vibrant affects.
To make this card, I started with a 5x7 inch black base card. I added the first mat of bright green and the next mat in bright orange with a chevron embossing. I thought that the orange paper would detract from the pumpkins, but no matter what color paper I chose, I kept coming back to the orange. The bats and stars were die cut and the sentiment came from my stash. I colored the sentiment using the same colors I used for the digital image. I matted the sentiment onto black paper. I think this turned out to be just the cutest! A perfect card for sending to a grandchild don't you think? I hope you like it too! Please share this blog with all your paper crafting friends.
