Toil and Trouble

     For those of you who question whether or not I know it's only August, yes, I do know.  Despite that, I posted my first Thanksgiving card on Monday and today I have my first Halloween card.  But I was a winner in the FB challenge at Sasayaki Glitter and chose this image as my prize.  Then I just couldn't wait to get it colored up and made into a card.  :-D  It's called "MacBeth Witches" and it makes me think of the Hogwart's Choir singing "Toil and Trouble" in the first of the Harry Potter musical scores, a favorite of mine.

     The theme at the Sasayaki Glitter blog challenge is "Colors of the Rainbow" so I did my best to use as many colors as possible, while still having a Halloween color palette.


     I used a combination of ProMarkers, chalks, and polychromos pencils to color.  I cut the image with a stitched, rectangle die from Die-namics.  I layered together two scraps of CS, then used the same die to cut a window in which I inlaid the image so it becomes all one layer.  I added the sentiment and a small gingham bow and called it finished.  A delightful CAS design which will be easily mailed.
