Halloween, pumpkins, cider, oh my

Bewiching Tilda

Copic recipe: YR01,12,15,20,68. E0,000,11,13,15,31,35. R20(cheeks), V01,05,06,09 (dress & ruffle). G09,20,21(leggings), BV000, C00,02,03,04,05,07, Black100 (Shoes and Hat), Uniball Signo white pen and at you Spica pens 0,06,07.

Well friends, yesterday I overdid it, stayed up way too late and finish this Tilda with pumpkins card. Finished size is 5 1/4 by 5 1/4. I am going to give to my son for Halloween with a gift card tucked inside. Only because I know he'll let me keep her. (I'm so bad). The card looks pretty simple but has many different techniques. I cut and embossed with the nestabilities die, then after masking Tilda I airbrushed the background with 3 colored Copics. Then I stamped the words over that with the Halloween Collage stamp by The Memory box using SU Almost Amthyst ink. Orange peel Stickles applied to the embossed recessed edge. Whew.....Coloring Tilda was fun, a little challenging was her hat though. This was my first real attempt with black/blacks. I am going to attempt a black and white dress on a very classy rubbernecker stamp soon. I applied Stampin up Crystal effects to the pumpkins. The pumpkins were the most fun to color for me. There is Stickles along all her ruffles (Grape Ice). The MaryJanes even have little green rhinestone closures. Then I decided to spray the leaves with Tattered Angels glimmermist which is awesome. You can go nuts with glimmer mist on flowers, leaves, paper, everything. You can find out more about glimmer mist on their website http://www.mytatteredangels.com or look back at my older posts in July/Aug where I show you how to make your own. The Flower is from Prisma. The sentiment on the inside is from When Autumn Comes 2006 by Technique Tuesday. Any guess on the patterened paper? This really was a fun and relaxing card. Maybe tonight i'll do a Christmas card to get me in the mood. I'm making a pumpkin bread for cousin Kerri's baby shower tomorrow and maybe an apple pie. (I bought the apples anyways). I'm trying to be a little more domestic this week end, because on Monday i'm off to the rat race in Boston. Won't be home until late. Welcome to all the New Magnolia-licious members and Thanks to all who stop by. Carpe Diem!
