Halloween Bling card.

Good evening crafting buddies. What a grey day and wet too. Hopefully this will warm you up a bit. Another Halloween card and this time following the colour challenge at The Pink Elephant which is Black, White, Orange and Purple - lovely Halloween colours. I chose to use a recent purchase from Pink Gem Designs Mimi & Pumpkin which also means I can enter this card in the candy offer over at Pink Gem where you can win 6 stamps of your choice by entering a card using her stamps - bonus is you can enter as many times as you like.


I coloured the image using watercolour pencils and for the gloves and bobbles on the hat a purple Sakura stardust pen. Mimi is mounted on black glitter paper from Craftime and the strips of purple glitter paper are also from Craftime. The papers are from Summer Driggs and are called Fangs for the Memories, the sentiment was also from here reduced and mounted on orange Core'dinations card which has been sanded at the edges.

I used the sketch from Truly Scrumptious and is shown above (for a change!).
I am also entering this card in a cuople of new challenge blogs I have found, The Creative Belli Blog where they want a Halloween card with coloured glitter and Gingersnap Creations where they would like some bling.

Yes, only four tonight I'm sorry Dawn AKA Craftykitten, I couldn't compete with 12 - yes you read it right 12 challenges pop over to check it out here. I am also really pleased to say she has been given a DT post at Digital Delights, all I can say is well done mate and I look forward to your creations for Wendy.

Please comment on my card as usual
