I started coloring this fabulous witch I found at Sweet Pea Stamps, having nothing more in mind than using typical colors for a Halloween card. Originally, I had the usual orange, purple, green, black, etc. in my mind, but kept looking at the color palette offered by Our Crafty Corner (see below). I loved how spectacular her clothing looked at this point (a rather wonderful surprise) so I left off the purple and green. Besides, I remember when Halloween colors were just orange and black! :-D
I was inspired by the colors from Our Crafty Corner.
The image is colored with my Copics (where I have a better selection of fall colors) and then I used one of my framing dies from Spellbinders to cut it. I popped up the sentiment on dimensional dots and added a tiny bit of glitter to the tip of her hat. I didn't want to take away from that fancy frame or the image so there's no other embellishment at all. I like it just the way it is, frilly and feminine looking while actually CAS.

In case you hadn't figured it out, I'm really happy with today's card! :-D It's odd how much I love doing Halloween, Thanksgiving or other fall cards since yellows and oranges are colors I rarely use at any other time of the year. I did manage to incorporate them into a few of my other cards this past year but I really tend much more toward the purples, pinks, blues, and greens when choosing color combos for my cards. Have a wonderful weekend, my friends. Happy Stamping. NanaConnie
