Fly Pumpkins! Fly!

Well, this is one of the sweetest little witches I've ever had an opportunity to color! This beautiful digital image is by The Paper Shelter. Speaking of The Paper Shelter...the challenge this week is so easy...CHARM US!  Use a charm on your project...I warned you it was an easy challenge!


I colored my little witch with Copics with a dash of clear stickles on the skull on her dress and added yellow stickles to the pumpkin faces and the stars around her. My charm is a bat that was all silver but I didn't think he showed up nice enough so I colored the inside of his wings with my black Copic pen. Don't you just love these alcohol pens!

I used my Whimsy round scallop die around the image in purple glitter paper and then cut another round scallop die in the bright green and layered them. My pumpkins across the bottom are a punch by EK. The sentiment and punch in the corner are by Stampin' Up. Here's a close-up of my little witch.


The challenge at The Paper Shelter Blog is sponsored by The Paper Shelter! This little image comes with a black and white version, a colored version (which is adorable but I just had to color her for myself), a colored background and then the colored image on top of the colored background! You have so many options when you buy this one image for under $3.00!  If you don't own one of their images, what are you waiting for? Look at the difference in prizes if you use one of the images from The Paper Shelter in the challenge:


Now that you've seen my card, please go and visit The Paper Shelter Blog and see what the rest of the talented Design Team have created to inspire you. Hopefully, you'll take part in this easy peasy challenge of "Charm Us!"

  11. Hocus-pocus, abracadabra -- both words come to mind on this totally bewitching creation !! LOVE the green hair, the pumpkin border cut-out and layering the diecuts in different colors is a total knock-out - what a fabulous idea! You've used all the popular Halloween colors here to great advantage!! Of course, the lovely bow and charm is the whipped cream on the whole thing!!

  14. Well, your colouring here looks fab Gayle - great shading! What a fab image but she is far too cute to be scary - the flying pumpkins are more scary!
    I do love these Halloween colours too and the touches of sparkle - lovely :-)
