Witch Tilda With Pumpkins

Hi everyone!  I picked up this Witch Tilda With Pumpkins rubber stamp about this same time last year and even got around to stamping it on white cardstock then there it sat all year, LOL!!! Since it was all ready for me to color I couldn't resist trying out my new copic coloring skills! And I'm proud to say that my husband noticed and kindly commented on how great he thought the shading looked! I was surprised he liked the shading since when I first started using copic markers he didn't like the look, I'm hoping that means I've improved some since then, LOL!!!

My card base is True Black layered with White Cardstock then Luminous Patterned Paper. The shadow layer is Plum Pudding layered on True Black. The image and sentiment are printed on White Cardstock and the image colored in using copic markers. I distressed the edges of the card base, shadow layer, sentiment and the image using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and a sponge. To embellish the card I added a bow made with shimmery orange ribbon and a ton of black pearls.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

Hi, I think the shading looks really nice! I love the colors you used, for me they are typical Halloween colors, too bad that in The Netherlands we don't really "do" Halloween. Great job! Hugs, Hanneke
