Mo's Challenge # 46

The Witching Hour

The challenge Peggy has for us this week is to use an image by Mo and make something for Halloween.
A card I made with this image was the very first card posted on this site, so this little witch has a special place in my heart!
I wasn't entirely happy with my coloring on this and not too sure about how the card would turn out, but it kept evolving, and I love the finished product! 
I've had the black and white polka dot brads for months and have been waiting for a reason to use them. I think they're perfect for the centers of these funky flowers! 
The largest Primas I used weren't the right color, so I used my Copics to customize them to match her dress.

Image: "Trick or Treat" from Mo's Digital Pencil

Papers: SU! Only Orange, Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black, Bazzill textured orchid. PTI white, Black gingham

Tools: Copics, Prismacolor pencils, White gel pen, Martha Stewart Zig-zag border punch, Slice with 'Findings' design card, Glue Dots

Embellishments: Primas, Brads,Rhinestones, Polka Dot gingham ribbon

I'm back at school as of Tuesday and the kids started Wednesday. I enjoyed such a lazy, relaxing summer that I don't know how I'm going to re-adjust to the daily school regimen!
I get up at 5:30 every day anyway, but during the summer I go to bed very late and take a nap when I start to flag during the day....that is no longer possible once school has started. I'll have to keep myself from falling asleep at my desk! They frown on snoring during class!

Have fun with this challenge! Mo has several new images for the holiday...even the new Tin Man and Scarecrow from her Wizard of Oz series would work. In fact, I'm probably going to use them myself for our grandsons' cards this year.

Get busy and have fun!
