Color Throwdown #62

CTD62 swatch

DSCF5476 This week's CTD hostess is Broni, and she chose some spooky colors to challenge us this week:
Rich Razzleberry, Really Rust, Old Olive and Basic Gray!  And the sponsor this week is Louby Lou Digital Images!  I am still learning how to use digital images, but it is certainly fun to change the size and print them on different papers, and to always have them at hand!!  (And no smudged ink!)  I chose to make my little Dracula on the larger size, and then realized he was a tad bit intimidating for me to color in with my Copics:

I did use SU markers for his shirt, and you can definitely tell the difference!  However, I persevered and did some paper piecing for the larger elements, and kept the layout and embellishments rather simple since this will go to my nephew for Halloween---he doesn't really like a lot of glitter & stuff, as you can imagine!  The card base is textured Basic Gray; papers are BG Ambrosia, (great for Halloween), and the sentiment is from Crafty Secrets; spider is from SU.  I used Rich Razzleberry Patterns DP for his wings and hat; some retired fall DP for the jack-o-lantern.  I have to admit, this was  a challenge for me!  I am still on a learning curve with the Copics and my supply is limited, so bear with me!  I did decorate the inside a little bit with some more DP and a little punched sentiment:
