frightfully delightful freaky friday challenge #3...

The frightfully delightful freaky friday challenge this week was a colour challenge. To make a Halloween card using only the following colours: Purple, dark orange, olive and black (neutrals allowed too). This is what I came up with!
I received this awesome image from MFT from the PIF (pay it forward) thread on Splitcoast. I really wanted to paper piece the witch's dresses but because I didn't have the stamp decided to use an exacto knife and cut the dresses out and line up patterned paper beneath the main image. Voila! They now have stylish I coloured them in using Prismas, gamsol and stumps and added black stickles to their boots and her hat...these ghoulish gals are ready for a night on the town! Using my white craft ink and a sponge I sponged the edges of all the black cardstock, cuttlebugged the purple panel and then using the finger walk technique stamped the cheesecloth bg on the olive panel. The sentiment "ghoul's night out" was done on the computer. I added a black glittery bat to continue the "glitter" theme and added the fat olive ribbon under the panels and tied purple, olive and pumpkin grosgrain ribbon off of the main image. The main image is popped up to add some dimension to the design.
Stamps: Totally witchin' (MFT), cheesecloth bg. CS: basic black, elegent eggplant, old olive, whisper white and patterned papers by: Making memories (spellbound) and renessaince (?). Ink: blk staz on, basic black, white craft ink. Access: cuttelbug, skulls and swirls embossing folder, sponge, Prisma colour pencils, gamsol, stumps, exacto knife, dimensionals, 5/8" olive grosgrain ribbon, pumpkin, olive and eggplant grosgrain ribbon, horizontal slot punch, black stickles, glittery foam bat (Making Memories), and computer for sentiment.
