As I've mentioned in many previous posts, I'm on a quest to break out of the white background trend. I love coloring, but am so tired of only using white & vanilla for my image layer. I want color!!For this card I used some brand new paper being carried by My Favorite Things. Unfortunately Kim is sold out right now but I know more is on the way!! This pack contained 25 sheets of double sided Halloween paper in the most vibrant and yummy colors imaginable!! I really love it... of course I'm a bit biased because I did help her pick it out at CHA.
I used a bright green polkadot paper to stamp my image from American Art Stamp. I paper pieced the girls dress and cape, then colored her arms, legs and head first with a white gel pen to cover up the background color/pattern and once that was dry I used a copic marker to give it a little skin tone. The moon was done the with a white gel pen also, then covered with irridescent ice stickles.
I added more stickles on the sentiment panel andused some of the new ribbon for embellishment. I'm gonna rave about this ribbon too. You get 25 yards in a spool - is that amazing or what? I like the purple, but am really head over heels for the green. Did you know I'm obsessed with lime green??? If you look back through my projects I almost always have a bright, light green color on each one.
So this card is a bit on the wild side color-wise. But is is for Halloween, so I guess anything goes! I would love to see what YOU can come up with by stamping on patterned or colored paper for your main image. Put away the white and use just colored paper on your next card and link it back to this post.
Thanks for reading and have a fantastic day!
