Just Magnolia Challenge #28-Martine's Sketch / Cute Card Thursday's Challenge #83 - Candy Corn / Magnolia-licious October DT Sketch - Easel Card
This card I did for 3 challenges. Over at Just Magnolia you were to follow a beautiful sketch by Martine.
I love all the embellishments on this sketch. It was a fun one to make. I also turned it into an easel card so I could enter it into Magnolia-icious's monthly challenge to make an easel card. Cute Card Thursday is asking for candy corn on theirs and that's what my paper has on it. I wanted this card to go with my Martha Stewart broom candy bags, so I used the same image. I colored her with my Derwents and Mineral Spirits. I used some Halloween paper that I picked up at Michaels in a 6x6 pad. It has been very useful for my Halloween cards I've been doing for my blog. I used my Martha Stewart loopy punch and did it on white cardstock, but found it a bit stark, so I inked it with Tea Dye Distressed Inks. I added my favorite Martha Stewart Daisies, with the grassy punch of orange and gold sprigs around the flowers. I finished off with some Nicole Heady Black Ribbon, and pop dotted the sentiment trick or treat. I used the ribbon to prop the easel card in it's standing position as this way the card could lay flat and be mailed. This was a fun card to make.
