Spooky Hues with Toby Bear

This is my third week as a guest designer for Papertake Weekly.  Today's challenge is to Spooky Hues, but it doesn't have to be a Halloween card.  This gave me a chance to do one of my favourite images, which is Toby from StampFairy.

My spooky hues are purple, orange and (although it hasn't shown up very well) there is a green vertical panel, and each purple layer is bordered by green.  The sentiment is also green.  The ribbon is orange, and those vibrant flowers were previously cream ones that I coloured with my orange copic (YR16).  It is a little bright !!!  I hope you're wearing your sunglasses when you look at this one !!!

Here's my card :

I've also decorated the inside too along the same theme, but using a different Toby image:

I hope to see you all join in the challenge, and please pop over to the Papertake Weekly Challenge Blog to see the other fab designs by the DT members, and join in the Spooky Hues challenge this week.

By the way, there is a new release out at StampFairy today, a new girl is in town, called Molly.  There are some more images of her coming out shortly, but for now, here is a preview of the newly released character, Molly.  Don't forget there is a half price sale on too.  Pop over and grab yourself a bargain (or two!).

I've been inspired by :
Happy crafting

Awww... hes a cutie! :) I like his blue nose, and great layering of the image.

I like the look of those new images too!

Hope you are having a great week,



PS, have you tried balancing your colour in photo-editing software. I sometimes have trouble when I have used a flash or daylight bulb, and usually import my pic into Adobe Lightroom (but any would do) and balance out the colours and hues. It often doesnt look the same way I see it in RL without some tonal adjustment. :)
