Mo's Digital Pencil--Halloween!!!

Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge this week is Halloween.  Our wonderful Team Leader, Peggy Marsh, is our hostess this week.  Have I mentioned lately that Halloween is my favorite Holiday :), yeah I know...Here is my card:

I didn't want to make the traditional colored Halloween card and I just love this darling little Halloween Witch.  I thought the browns, orange and black would be fun and I really like the way it turned out.

The image was colored with copic markers and the moon was created using a Fiskar's circle cuting template drawn in with a copic marker and blended to resemble moon glow.  The outside was sponged with distress inks in weathered wood and vintage photo distress inks.

The dp is from a Me and My Big Ideas paper pack called Harvest and a strip of MS spider webs created with a border punch.  I added little spiders highlighted with clear glitter pen. The spider webs are highlighted as well with the same glitter pen.

The spiral flowers in the lower right were created by cutting a 2 1/2 inch circle and cut the certer evenly in a spiral ending in the center and then twisting it from outside to the middle of the spiral on a tweezers.  It is fun to make them and a little smaller than some of the larger roses I have made out of square spirals.

Be sure you check out the rest of the DT members projects and now that the kids are back in school you need to play along with us and you may even win the free image from Mo's Digital Pencil store.

Thanks for stopping by.
