Good morning followers old and new, and anyone taking a peek at my blog. October is here, another month is flying by and over at The Crafty Bloggers Network the theme is Anything Goes.
This month's challenge is sponsored by the very talented artist Rick St Dennis, pop over to his Etsy Shop and take a look at the fabulous digi images on offer. Check out The Crafty Bloggers Challenge for more details and to see the amazing DT cards using Rick's images.
This is a Halloween DT card using Rick's Esmeralda The Fortune Teller digital image. This is a fabulously detailed image and I had so much fun colouring her I did a second Esmeralda using different colours. I have been away for the last three weeks and this gave me time to practice some colouring with my Promarkers.
My card started life as an A4 sheet of white linen card which was cut to make a 15cm x 15cm square card blank. I created the moon and bats using Serif Page Plus desktop publishing and printed it onto the card. The background was coloured with distress inks using chipped saphire and a little black soot. A piece of Pink Petticoat Spooky Doodles Scratches paper was printed, torn and distressed a little and stamped with Halloween words and images from Indigo Blu and My Mind's Eye then layered onto the bottom of the card. A little spiced marmalade DI was added for the moon's reflection. Esmeralda ws printed and coloured using Promarkers, fussy cut and attached to the card.
Above is Esmeralda using different colours and mounted on a white fancy background ready to be made into a card.
