Stampavie Challenge

Well I didn’t manage to get a decent photo last night so here’s my Stampavie Challenge card now.  This week the challenge is to use spooky colours.  Now I don’t do spooky colours, or spooky cards for that matter – so not me, so I struggled with this challenge.  Fortunately I was having a tidy up of the piles of papers on my desk and found these Magnolia papers that I bought (why??) and had not used.  Phew, saved by the tidy up lol.

See, told ya I don’t do spooky rofl.  This is as good as it gets.  I even tried to tone done the orange with a lick of Distress Crackle Paint around the edges of the papers.  I went mad to use up the papers and did the whole decorating the inside bit.  Gawd talk about an orange explosion – I got a bad head now rofl.

The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts natch.  I used Classic Sweet Rose, 15mm roses and 10mm roses.  The small roses were a brown colour till I blitzed them with some silver Cosmic Shimmer mist.  The leaf punch is Martha Stewart Frond punch.

And a close up of Elodie in her Garden – soooo cute.  Just love that hat lol.

I coloured her up with Copics -

Skin:  E21, E00, E000, R02
Oranges: YR02, YR00, YR000, YR0000
Greys: C7, C5, C3, C1, C0, and black Prisma Pencil

I have another SWALK sneak peek today.  The papers are all from the accompanying CD that goes on sale, along with the stamps, on 22nd October.
