Happy Tuesday! Just stopping by to post my card entry for the latest Saturated Canary challenge... it was an “interesting” color inspiration photo, to say the least, but I just love challenges. As I say, they help you stretch those creative muscles whether it is with color, medium or your project design. Here is the photo as inspiration:
Well, the first thing I did was carry (run) this little photo over to my craft table and match the color chips in the photo with my “copic swatch book”. Once I knew what colors I could use, I selected one of my favorite new Saturated Canary images, WitchKeys. I love having all three witches in one image and how perfect for the Halloween season. Each witch has her own look and her own attitude!
“Witchkeys” was colored with copic markers (see colors below). I created polka dots with the Sharpie white paint pen and then coated certain parts of each witch with Deco Art Glamour Dust. In some spots, my glue/glitter blobbed a bit but I was afraid the copics might smear if I touched it and coloring them over was not an option!
The cardstock is from Bazzill and that fab design paper is Authentique’s Enchanted 6×6 paper pad. I also used my favorite Kraft cardstock from Craftworks to mat my paper/image. It is a nice thick and dark cardstock! All edges of the cardstock and papers were distressed with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain ink. Behind the image, I cut two pieces of black spiderweb net ribbon to add to the spooky theme. The flowers are all from Recollections and Wild Orchid Crafts. The sentiment is from one of my favorite acrylic stamp sets by Obsession Impression. Last but not least, the die cut swirls are one of my “go-to” dies from Memory Box, Elegant Scrollwork.
