I'm back with a festive card for Halloween! I'm slowly starting to get in the holiday mood...specially since the holidays are growing ever and ever closer! This year has just gone by way way too fast!
I was all motivated and raring to go last week to get my holiday crafting on and then came down with a sinus infection. I've been fighting a cold off with Zycam for about a month when kiddos started getting sick. I thought I was safe and then, wham!...instantly woke up feeling just awful last week! I'm starting to feel a little better after being medicated so I'm kicking myself in the butt to get going on these cards!
Anyhoo...I splurged a little and got me some more Saturated Canary digis! Krista has some super cute Halloween images, so I just had to get her "Fly Girl" because I love witches! I think I dressed up as a witch almost every year when I was a kid...lol.
I used a sketch from "Sketch Saturday"...first time since leaving the DT. They are doing such a wonderful job over there following in Jo's footsteps and have made it all their own.
Although I'm in love with this image...I'm not thrilled with the way my card turned out. I screwed up royally when coloring the image...I had the colors bleeding everywhere! Then I tried to fix it with a dotted background and just drowned it...lol. So I had to cut out the image to save it...as you can probably tell? I had to cut off her beautiful tendrils of hair and some of the swirly parts of the broom...not very happy about it.
Then when creating the cloudy background I had ink all over my fingers and smudged it...so had to cover the smudges with the liquid pearls. So if you're wondering why I went crazy with the liquid pearls, that is why. I should have just started over at this point....lol. That's what I get for crafting with a sinus infection!
The sentiment is part of my new Spooky Halloween pattern circles! If you like them, you can find them in my digi shop HERE! I shared some freebies on my blog last week...if you missed them, you can find them here.
And the inside..I kept simple. My sewing machine was definitely not wanting to cooperate...lol.
