"Bad" Witch?


     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

You find the prettiest witches to color. Your coloring is phenomenal on her dress. Glad you kept with just the orange,yellow and black. They may not be your favorite colors buy you do work wonders with them. Enjoy your weekend.
