Hello, pumpkin

Howdy folks!

Well, I wasn't quite as productive yesterday as I had hoped. I didn't get much crafting done but I did manage to clean and re-arrange the living room which felt good. Still, I did get this card done using the little Pure Innocence sweetie that I started coloring up in the skin tone video I posted the other day. It was actually one of three short vids that can be seen here or on Color Me Copic. :)

This one turned out to be quite the leap from yesterday's dark and spooky card but this cutie just needed a bright and fun Halloween background. Especially since I altered her a bit by giving her a witch hat and adding a face to the jack o'lantern. Not only that but I was so proud of myself for pulling out the Cuttlebug and using one of my sadly neglected embossing folders. I even added some Stickles to the pattern 'cause I was feeling extra crafty, LOL! ;)

Well I'm hoping that today will prove to be a bit more productive 'cause I've got lots that I want to get done.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

I'll chat at ya tomorrow. :)

Your card is so adorable. The stickles really really make the jack-o-lanterns pop. May have to try that on some of my embossed images. Have a wonderful day!

I love the "altering" you've done, sswweeeet! Gorgeous card all round, I know what you mean about productivity: I was going to make a card the other day and decided to sort out my flower stash instead...THREE HOURS later I have a very tidy flower stash, which no-one else can see, and very little else! Realize I don't have to buy any flowers for a while, lol. Dee

Very beautiful color!Amy I very much like your works, but unfortunately because of complexity with transfer not always can will express the admiration. And many good Russian words can't be translated on English, their meaning is lost.

Leanne said...

hehehe, she totally looks like she's struggle to get the jack-o-lantern to stay in her arms. the funny face it perfect, it's like he's laughing at her or something. lol!
love the bright colors, and the embossed backdrop is so cool, especially with the sparkles! another winner in my book. :)
