We're kicking off a new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge. The lovely Gunn-Eirill is our hostess for this challenge and it's a colour challenge 'Orange, Black and/or Purple'--choose at least 2 colours. We are being sponsored by The Ribbon Girl. To get complete details on the challenge, the prize being offered and how you can join in the fun, visit the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge blog. Check out also the fabulous cards that my DT teammates have created to inspire you to play along with us.
And so I've created this card for the challenge.
I've also decorated the inside of my card.
I found the little poem on the internet--don't know who the author is. Based on the poem, I've created this night scene with diecuts using dies that I already have, except for the cats. I don't have any cat die--I know there are some out there. I found the cat silhouettes from the internet and cut these out by hand. I left the centre of the circle blank for writing a personal note.
Here's a close-up of the adorable witch I'm featuring.
Her name is Hazel designed by Sylvia Zet of Wee Stamps.
As usual, I've used my alcohol-ink markers (Letraset Promarkers and Pantone Trias) to colour the image with a few coloured pencils mixed in there.
