Day 9 of 31: Black Lace with A Day for Daisies

Hello! I have a new challenge with A Day for Daises today to go along with Day 9 of the Smeared Ink 31 Days of Halloween. The challenge for the next two weeks is "Black Lace." Easy as pie! I used the new Little Witch Play for my card.

I used the same technique for coloring her as I did with my ADfD post last week. I used my Tombow acrylic markers, and colored them on to an acrylic block (one color set at a time...so, like just the greens for her dress, then just the grays for the cat and boots, etc.) and I painted the ink on with a brush and some water. I used my Stampendous Mixed Media paper for this, which goes through my printer so nicely, by the way.

After she was all colored, I added some chalk to my background. For my black lace, I actually took some white lace trim, and sprayed it with Diet Cola Memories Mist. It took a while to dry, so I worked on my card base while it was drying. I played with Spoonful of Rust, and I think the colors worked really well with the tones I used to color the image.

My sentiment is an oldie but goodie from Cosmo Cricket. That about does it for me today. Please be sure to visit the rest of the A Day for Daisies team as well as all of the Wicked Bloggers, lited in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!

Fun, sweet card. Beautiful shadings.

I am a bit slow. What is the technique on the top corner, to look like autumn leaves?

Fabulous coloring. Such an adorable stamp. Really love the cool embossing in the corner, too. It looks kinda like falling leaves. Gorgeous! xxD
