Aurora Wings Challenge #56 Anything Goes

Aurora Wings Challenge #56 Anything Goes

I am so not a blogger. I like to create for challenges, but I usually forget to blog about my design. Thankfully, the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog forces one to blog before entering one's creation. So here goes:

I used one of my favourite images, Memento Mori for this challenge. I wanted a Halloween feel to this card, so I used papers from Echo Park Paper Co., “Under Your Spell”. For coordinating colours, I grabbed some orange and black cardstock from my stash.

This beautiful image was coloured with Copic markers, and I used Mercury Glass Stickles for the details in the poppies' centers. I've added a few spiders in the top right corner, as well as some black jewels in the bottom left corner. A bit more background paper was used for a matching inside.

Copic colours: 
Poppies – YR15, 16, 09
Leaves – YG91, 93, 95, 97
Skull – E000, 40, 41, 43, 44, 47 & T5, 7, 9

Jody, this is such an elegant Halloween card! What a beautiful coloring approach on the image. The orange looks great on the poppies, and the spider die cuts are adorable (I love spiders! Can you tell?) Thank you for joining us for the ATG challenge at Aurora Wings with your gorgeous entry. Mitzi xx Reply to this comment
