Hello friends! I hope that you’re all having a wonderful week so far! The weather has really been changing this week as we get into Fall now. Speaking of that, it’s time for sharing some fun Halloween themed projects!
I’m VERY honored to have won a guest spot for this month over at the Digi Doodle Studios Challenge Blog! So for the October challenge, the theme is “Pink and/or Halloween” You can choose to use either or both…I’ve decided to use BOTH on my creation:
As a winner, I was given this darling image to play with called Gwendoline DDS Good Halloween Witch and I thought she would be so much fun to color up in the pink and black colors! I think she turned out adorable in her pinkness!
I have also decided to print out a sentiment from the DDS Halloween Happiness Digital Sentiments Collection that I’ve used as a strip on the right side of my panel placed directly under the image panel. Both of these panels have been sponged with some pink ink around the edges. The witch image panel was popped up with some craft foam.
For the papers, I have printed out the fun pink and black dotted patterns from the DDS Wonky Halloween Digi Paper Pack and then used a sander around the edges of them for a bit of distressed look. Before attaching the black with pink dots strip in the center, I wrapped some pink metallic ribbon around it with a bow. This strip was placed behind the image panel, but in front of the layers behind the image panel. Those layers are pink metallic mirror cardstock and a scallop die cut black cardstock which was also layered behind the sentiment strip. All of the panels were placed over a black top folding 5″ card base.
I’ve added a couple of die cut spider webs from some white glitter paper and attached them in the corners of the design and then found some pink sequins with stars that I filled the centers with some pink glitter drops scattered around as well as placing an extra die cut star and sequins in the center of the bow.
And here’s a closer look at the coloring I’ve done over her using Copic markers. I’ve used a white gel pen for the dots on her cheeks as well as highlights on her legs.
It’s always hard to really show all of the wonderful shimmer and sparkle, but I’ve used a glitter brush pen over the pink stars in her dress as well as the stars surrounding her. (Her pink earrings were covered with it too.) I took a pink metallic gel pen to color in the dots on her dress and the ones surrounding her. I then took the pink glitter drops that I’ve used in the center of the sequins and add a couple more around her trailing stars and the center of the star in her wand too.
I also very lightly sponged in some pink chalk for the stars and dots area around her after it was all dry.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my card for today and have been inspired in some way!
Thanks for dropping in today my friends and I’ll be seeing you again very soon!😉

This is the cutest Halloween card, with a non-scary theme! I just love that fun sentiment with all the pink & black colors and those little stars and cobwebs are a great nod to the occasion! Fun ribbon and great chalking too! Wishing this Halloween cutie could use her magic wand to make Halloween fun for the little ones this year.

Oh, what a delightfully creative idea, Vicki, to do a Halloween card in pink! Great way to combine October themes and remember Breast Cancer Awareness along with the fun of cute Halloween witches. Well done!
