Hey, peeps! Today’s ColourQ challenge will crack you up:
Although this table is definitely not my style, it is whimsical and fun! Perfect inspiration for a funky Halloween card:
I snagged this free digital image from Alison Spelman quite a while ago and this was the perfect time to use it! I printed it out and colored it in with Copics and added some SU orange glitter:
I used the sketch from this week’s Retrosketches for my layout:
and I used a piece from an old square dance crinoline to make my little ruffle along the side:
A couple of button embellies and some chevron embossing, and this Halloween card is ready to mail! I love that it uses non-traditional colors, too! What can you make with this fun color combo? Can’t wait to see it---share it with us at the ColourQ blog!
I pinned a cute craft for Cassidy last week and thought she would enjoy it since we had been talking about pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns. It was just a pumpkin cut from orange felt and some black and yellow shapes that she could stick on the felt to make a face. She didn’t’ quite get the concept because she hasn’t really made a jack-o-lantern yet! She did enjoy cutting the felt scraps and lining up the shapes, though!
Oh, and she thought the pumpkin would make a good hat:
