Halloween at Di's Digi Challenge Blog

Hello from me, yes I have been a stranger for a while LOL. Been busy crafting and doing other things as well, so blog was neglected again, oops!

Its that time of year ALREADY when the clocks have gone back and the autumn colours are out and of course Halloween is upon us! I love the crisp bright days though when it doesn't rain and I do love autumn as much as spring.

Onto my card for this week's challenge at Di's Digi Challenge Blog, using Di's Magic Spell image - how cute is this little witch....... he he he he...........

I did some paper piecing which you can just about tell from the photo (sorry it was getting dark when I took it earlier) and although its time consuming I am happy with the result and want to use this technique more - flat stamped images just seem ordinary now!

...and here is the full easel card - in  8 x 8 size with all its gems and flowers etc,
The papers are from Bearly Mine Designs which you can find here, its called Happy Hauntings.

The dies used for this card are a mixture of Spellbinders, Go Kreate, Marianne D and a Martha Stewart punch, and the image was coloured with Faber Castell polychromos pencil crayons (only sansador added to the face).

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Bearly Mine Challenges - Flowers Galore
Mojo Monday 265 - Round or Square sketch
Cute Card Thursday - Something Scary
Fussy and Fancy - Anything Goes
Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog - What's Cookin
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Not just an ORDINARY card - mine is an easel

will be popping back with another Halloween card tomorrow
