Sweet Tricksters

I couldn't resist just one more Halloween card before I tuck my spooky stamps away for a few months.
These sweet little trick or treaters, the Mummy, the Witch and the Pirate, from Stamping Bella were calling out to be coloured. I used Jen's Sketch For You To Try from Oct 17th for the layout.
I started by stamping the image three times with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest paper then I coloured it with copics. I know...went a little copic crazy on this one...my apologies...but I just kept thinking I can't use the same shade of brown for all the brown parts! This image is perfect for lots of dimension so I cut out the witch and the cauldron, popped them for dimension, then I cut out the three pumpkins and popped them for even more dimension. I added sparkle to the pumpkins with my orange and yellow Spica glitter pens and I coloured the pirate's sword with my Stardust pen. Then I thought the cauldron should be shiny so I added two layers with my clear Glaze pen.

Here's a shot of the dimension.
Of course I reached for my Basic Grey Eerie paper for this sweet and spooky creation...I just LOVE this paper!!! I used my MS spider web punch on the black patterned strip then added a pop of orange with the polka dot ribbon. I couldn't resist the skull button and I added three black brads to finish the card.
