Sorry...but there are so many gorgeous images around for this time of year
it is hard not to buy...
Today's card is inspired by
The Paper Shelter # 269 Halloween(2nd entry)
*cos Anything Goes sites aren't just for DT postings*
I find myself avoiding "Sketch" based challenges...
especially when they are as complex as this one...
but I do love me a challenge!
I started by counting the layers...
I needed 5 rectangles + long length across + topper!
I decided the easiest way to make sure the
layers went together well was to take 5 papers from
a complete collection.
but then this scrap of floweriness jumped into the mix...
and then a scrap of embossed card crept in too.
The layering looked a bit "flat" but matting each piece
would have made the card really bulky,
so I just scraped the edges with a sharp blade
*very satisfying mwahahaha...*
A little bit of fussy cutting on the flowery paper
gave a bit more interest to the cross border
It is much easier to make the base card up
and then choose colours to use on your topper.
I NEEDED to use "Sugar Skull" from TPS
I find it best to make a palette on the same paper/card
as I have printed on before colouring,
as this gives you a truer colour to choose from
All in all...I think this turned out pretty cool
for a Ghoul's night in :D
Enjoy :D XXX
BTW...Tomorrow s Magaly's "Witches in Fiction" event
