PP463 Trick or Treat


Hi stampers!  It's time for another Paper Players challenge, and Laurie has a color challenge for us today:


A lot of times when we have a color challenge, I like to try to think outside the box and create something unexpected with the colors.  My mind defaulted to "Halloween" when I saw these colors, but when I saw what my teammates created, which are beautifully out of the box, I went ahead and embraced the Halloween-iness of these colors and made this:


I used the fun FMS sketch:


and an adorable little witch from an older Recollections set:


I stamped her and her pumpkin in Stazon ink on thick white cardstock and colored them in with reinkers and an aquapainter.  She was then fussy-cut and mounted on some Smoky Slate gingham.  I cut some stars from glimmer paper and colored them with a Blend--another great way to stretch the uses of those wonderful markers!  Here's the inside:


I don't like scary Halloween images, but this little witch is as cute as can be...she makes me smile! Edited to add:  I am also going to submit this to the Krafty Chicks challenge, which is "Bewitched"!



Be sure to check out what the design team created over at the Paper Players blog....then share YOUR creation with us!!  Can't wait to see what you come up with!  Thanks for popping in today--enjoy your day and be blessed!

How utterly adorable is this sweet witch LeAnne, right down to the teeny tiny spider hanging from her hat?! So cute. I struggled with the grey in this combo this week, yet you’ve used all four colours seamlessly - bravo! I love the softness of the gingham which works really well without detracting from your trio of Halloween delightfulness. A fab card!

Simply adorable LeAnne. Great fussy cutting leaving a white edge...I have a hard time keeping it even with the white edge.
