Darling Butterfly



Halloween Magic

     Hello again my crafty friend, ty so much for stopping by. As you may know I am on the Outlawz sketch challenge design team that runs on Wednesdays. Sketch challenges are great because you already now where to put everything, now you just have to decide what "everything" is!! Die cuts, images, layers, bling...come play along with us and show us your "everything" :)
     This week's sketch is a rather simple one and the ladies on the design team are all incredibly talented crafty creators, you need to pop on over to The Outlawz Sketch Challenge to see what they made with this sketch, fantastic inspiration for sure!!

This week's Sketch
tol you it was an easy one ;) 
My inspiration card 
          I fell in love with this stamp a few weeks ago when I went shopping at M's with some of my birthday money and saw a half price sign and she was sitting under it. Scoop....mine!!! lol I sure hope you can see this card in all it's glory, and the reason I say that is because the colours aren't true on my laptop screen but are on the larger screen it is attached to. So here's a description for you, just incase, LOL
     The image is P168 Halloween Magic by 2012 Stampendous, isn't she just so awesome, I'm really not into grunge or whatever all the stuff that has sprockets and gears and stuff on it is, but this one is awesome! I only have two purple copics markers to choose from and I used both on her, as I knew I wanted to do her up in purple. Especially since I also had gotten an awesome Halloween stack by Recollections called Haunted Estate, the papers are awesome, and I loved this purple bg dp with the shiny black spider web pattern on it and knew the two were a perfect match.
 I coloured the dress and hat with V28 (eggplant) and V15 (mallow) which has a sort of pink tone to it. I used C7 for her hair and a silver gel pen on the clock, the gear and the tiny dots of the mask. I made the two mats using labels 4, cutting the black one out twice and cutting one in half to make the black layer wider as it was the biggest one and she is a big image. I glued the mats together and glued them to the dp. I attached her with an action wobble, I just love those things, LOL  I also wanted to use the MS spider web punch I also got with some bday money at 50% off...YAY I cut 4 strips and glued them to frame the dp, then pop dotted it onto a piece of purple that matched the pinkier of the two markers since the dp matched the darker shade so well and I wanted to bring out the lighter colour more. When I was done I felt the mask didn't show enough bling to it so I used silver ice  ice stickles to go over the little silver dots around the mask and dusty concord TH distress stickles on the mask itself and her shoes. I also painted the spider web strips with TH black soot distress stickles. It really is much prettier in person, I even love the texture on the white mat shes mounted on.
