Bewitching the Paper Craft Crew

Halloween will be here before you know it! Are you ready???

You'll notice from this post, that when I create, I play with what I have out. Since I was creating with Elegant Eggplant for the Divas I figured I might as well just keep creating with it for the Paper Craft Crew. It's easier to put away when there's LESS of it to put away - LOL!

Today's card features one of my most favourite sets to watercolour, Greeting Card Kids:

I stamped my little witch on watercolour paper using Staz-ON ink and coloured her in using my watercolour crayons and aqua painters. I was going for an "antique" kind of look so I didn't saturate the image too much. Do you think I succeeded?

I matted the image on both Old Olive and Tangerine Tango (yep! I had them out...) and then added flags to the top right of the the image panel.

On the inside, I added a piece of Elegant Eggplant and Whisper White. Doodling and a matching flag were the finishing touches.

Here's the sketch on which the card was based (I took a few liberties):

What do you think?
