Polka Doodles - Halloween!!


Hi Peeps...

Today I'm here with another Halloween card (not my FAVOURITE sort of card you'll know if you know me well as I live in a world of pinks and pastels)...  but what the heck, I thought I'd throw my all into it...

I used Amelia Witch Toad digi stamp from Polka Doodles - she's the cutest witch I've seen for a while - and she has a penchant for glitter!!  I used a mix of Copics and Promarkers for her colouring.... then dotted the background to create a sort of magical effect.  The glitter is through her hair, on her robe, and even on her socks.... the toad is looking a little disgusted by all the shiney stuff landing by his feet - but he did escape getting any on him! 
Here's the list of Copics and Promarkers I used:
Grays/Blacks C0, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9, 100
Greens G21, G07, Promarkers Pine and Fresh Meadow
Purples BV00, V17, Promarker Aubergine
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Die: MFT Dienamics Stars
Embossing Folder - Crafts Too


Go on over the the blog HERE to see what the other Digi Queens have come up with - I promise you're in for a treat!

Now can I get back to my pinks and pastels.... PLEASE???

Ooooh and can I just say a big hello to my new followers... and give a mahoosive welcome to my little bit of cyberspace.... I'm chuffed that you decided to follow me - I do like to share my passion!

Big hugs and Happy Crafting..

    The frog looks like Dr. Hubby looks when I have got glitter everywhere... so not impressed!

  9. It is not the colours of Halloween I dislike it is the way it has become popular here, never heard of when I was little, seems to have taken over from Carol singing as we hardly get any of those anymore.
    Gorgeous image and wonderfully coloured love all the stars and those dots do add a magical touch.
