Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--Use a Gel Pen

The Challenge this week at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog is to use a gel pen on your creation.  This should be easy, except I used an Atyou gold glitter pen from Copic and it looks wonderful IRL but doesn't show up worth a darn in a photograph.  If you enlarge the photo you can see it.  Here is another Halloween card:

Isn't this a cute little witch wondering why the little elf troll is offering her a cute pumpkin...must be a catch huh?   The image is called: Surprised Witch.

The image was colored with copic markers and cut out with my newest long curved rectangle spellbinder die.  Look ma no sponging LOL!!!   I used the Out of the Box  for the witches hat for two reasons, I like the look and I was going to use my new dies. 
The embellisihments are a large rickrack die cut, a large scalloped die cut and three flower die cuts.  I think I was punch happy on this one...oh well at least it isn't boring!!  The little spiral flower in the lower right corner fit the image.
I used my copic airbrush system to spary over a chipboard spider web and spider for a little background interest on the purple cs.  The lines were highlighted with my gold Atyou glitter pen as well as all of the gold on the Sassy Witch's dresss, hat and leggings.

I really like this image but am not crazy about the color, I guess I use purple because it is a halloween color, but it is not my favorite color to work with. 

Be sure to check out what the rest of the DT has for your viewing pleasure today and be sure to check out our two new DT members, Jeni and Lily...I peeked and their creations are awesome, so glad to have you on the team.

While you are at it, stop by the store and see all of the new images Sassy Cheryl has created for you this week and if you belong to the Paper Craft Planet group you better get over there and get your super cute freebie.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day and try to join in the challenge with us, we'd love to have you.
