Just Magnolia Challenge - Bev's Sketch


Again I have used my Challenge to create another Halloween card for my grandchildren, this one is for my second eldest grandson, and Im hoping that it will suit his age, hes now 16 and at College, so it needed to be something appropriate.

Ive used another of the Tilda Halloween images, this one is of Edwin with his Trick & Treat bag, Ive then masked him and stamped the spiders web behind him and the mushrooms along the bottom. Then Ive used my copic pens to colour him, and I even used one of the florescent ones for his coat. Ive then cut him out with my rotatrim and mounted him onto a piece of orange card, for a change I used my sewing machine to zigzag around the edge. The sentiment is one I printed of my computer and Ive mounted this in the same was and again used the same sewing stitch around the edge. Both of these were then mounted onto a piece of black card, and around the end Ive used a textured knitting wool in multi colours.

The base card is a 8"x 8" white card with a first layer of black card, and again Ive used Donna's Bearly Mind Extreme Cd Vol.III Halloween design papers, the first one has lots of spooks, and cats, bats, hats, stars and leaves all over, this was stuck to the first mount, and on top of this Ive used a second of the papers, this was made up of squares of orange and white with stitching effect around each of the squares. I then used my spidersweb border punch along the bottom and stuck this on top of the base layer, and my mounted image was then stuck with some foam strips across the top of both.

To finish of I found a button which I thought would look good and stuck it to the bottom on the left. Before I forget, I might not be able to post a card for a couple of days as I have some sewing to do for one of my friends, so wish me luck with that, Ive got several pairs of mens trousers to let out and a pair of curtains to take up.

Hi Shirley

Love the colours here, but how can little Edwin be a vampire, he's so cute. Or is that his deep hidden secret ?

Hope you and all yours are well.
