Halloween Cutie Card

Hi Everyone.  Michelle here from Lady of Leisure Ink. I thought that it would be a great opportunity to make a Halloween card, and I felt like pulling out my ProMarkers to do some colouring.

I have had this cute little image for ages, and I just love her.  The image is called 'Perfect Poison' and is available at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  She is coloured with Letraset ProMarkers, and the colours used are as follows:

Blush, Soft Peach (skin)
Vanilla, Sandstone, Pale Yellow & Mustard (hair)
Purple & Apple (clothes)
Ice Grey 1 - 5 (shadows and bottle)

The great thing about making this card is that everything came from my stash (love it when that happens).  The wording strip on the side comes from a DCWV stack from a couple of years ago, I also used a piece to decorate the inside.

Here is a closer look at some of the details.

The spiders web was cut with my Cameo using a file from the Silhouette online store, the background paper was run through an embossing folder from Hobby Lobby, and the purple gems are supposed to be for decorating cell phones - found them on clearance in the dollar store.

I made the card 5" x 5" as I have some vellum envelopes that are about this size.  The trouble with using vellum for me is that I don't always want the recipient to see what is inside before they open the envelope.  So I used another piece of paper from the same stack to combat this.  I quite often find from some DCWV stacks that I have papers left with the larger images on that I don't always know what to do with - I have discovered that they are great for the inside of cards, or to line envelopes like this.

Plenty of space on this to put an address label and stamp without being too distracting for the mailman.

As always Pam thanks for having me and thanks everyone for stopping by today.
