Witch way is the Candy?

Halloween is creeping up on us and I've created a little topical card for Dies to Die For using and MFT set called Witch Way is the Candy.   I stamped and masked a circle and my characters before inking the whole cardbase with DI using some daubers and then watercoloured my image, adding some creamy yellow and a spot of pale grey to the moon for texture.  I sprinkled some water over the background to resemble a starry galaxy sky and matted the whole panel on black card. 

I was really pleased with how it turned out.  Even though I don't really 'celebrate' Halloween, I still really enjoy making cards and themed decorations for it.

Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:
  • Moon: Antique Linen, Pumice Stone 
  • Skin: Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Tea Dye
  • Greens: Shabby Shutters, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss
  • Purples: Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord
  • Bat: Victorian Velvet, Hickory Smoke, Black Soot
  • Hat:  Hickory Smoke, Black Soot, Scattered Straw
  • Broom: Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs
  • Background: Victorian Velvet, WIlted Violet, Black Soot
