Bloggers Challenge - Boo to You!

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  This weeks Bloggers Challenge Theme is a Color Challenge - use Black, Orange and White/Vanilla.  With Halloween being in just a few short weeks, I thought these colors would come in handy.

I used the not so wicked witch from the Artistic Outpost Haunted Halloween plate, she's stamped in Black Archival on Watercolor paper, then colored with the Marker Watercoloring Technique, sponging the edges with Pumice Stone Distress Ink.



Sketch Inspiration came from Unscripted Sketches #76, they had 3 brads in their sketch, which also fits the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #21 create a card with three elements.  I added three gems, and three different pattern paper designs.  It also fits Challenge 17 at Papercraft Star

PS - did you see the new Fancy Fold CD from the Technique Junkie Newsletter is now available for preorder!  I posted a Kinetic Spinner Card on my sidebar- this is one of the techniques on the CD.  The CD is perfect for crafters, and makes great gifts!  Click here for more details! 

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost
Ink - Black Archival, Markers, Pumice Stone
Card Stock - Pumpkin, Watercolor, Black
Other - Ink Bending Tool, H20 Brush, EK Success Gems, Basic Grey Eerie
