Trick or Treat

Hi, everyone, Kelli here!  I hope you're having a great day!  Today I have another relatively simple card for you.  I have been challenging myself to try and keep some of my projects simple because I am one of those people that never feels like I'm done, so I end up adding and adding.  I even still feel like this card needs something more, lol!  I focused on coloring a background for this project.  It's not necessarily a tradition Halloween card at all, but I tried to stick to more common Halloween colors.  I used the long vine type stamp from the Lawn Fawn - Blissful Botanicals set which I stamped in Memento - Tuxedo Black ink.  I stamped them going up and down and then altered the direction.  Speaking of Lawn Fawn, iCopic just got in all the new Fall/Winter 2011 releases, they are adorable...head on over and check them out!

Here's a closeup of the background.  You can see that it's a little busy and colorful, so that's another reason I wanted to keep the card simple.  To color all of these leaves, I used Copics: G28, G24 and G20 for the green.  YR16, YR15 and YR00 for the orange.  For the purple, V09, V06 and V05, and last but not least C9, C7 and C5 for the black.

I finished it off with a little stamped sentiment tag, a button and some cute Divine Baker's Twine in Green Apple.

Thanks for stopping by!  :)


Oh I think this is a fantastic Halloween card - it's great for adults especially! Gorgeous coloring on your vines!

So fabulous!!! LOVE it - the twine and button are the perfect finishing touch!! xx

I love this too....very pretty background! And just switching out the colors could make it feel totally different again! AWESOME!
