Flutter By Weds. Challenge #123 and Copic Creations #35

Click images to enlarge.

This week's theme is all things winged at the Flutter By challenge fun and "Shading" at Copic Creations! In the spirit of the upcoming Fall season I decided to make a Halloween card and just had to continue using my new Charlotte by Kraftin Kimmie...who by the way, has no wings! No problemo...I just sketched and colored a pair with Copics to make her a cute little winged Halloween creature. This easel card has glittery Stickles outlining the sentiment on the easel card base and on the bat-like wings. I colored the image completely with Copic markers, pop-dotted the ghoulish little girl. This one is a challenge to color both because I used a lot of black coloring technique and the delicate features make bleeding a problem. Next, I plan to try another technique! The background fence is a Magnolia Tilda stamp on Bazzill cardstock, DP paper is a Halloween fav of mine by MME. A few black & grey Prima flowers and black diecuts with buttons & a Recollections metal embellie finish things off nicely.

I'll enter this on Copic Creations latest challenge which is "shading". Please notice how my coloring improved from the earlier Charlotte below (and don't forget to click the images for a larger look.) I don't have many Copics yet but am adding all the time and hope this card works well since it's sponsored by Kraftin favorite new stamps!! I sure would like to win more, wouldn't you? Hurry over...they're picking the winner for this one on 10/1/10.

My recipe for this little ghoul's complextion is: Copic G50, G63, E50, YR16 (blush)...I just loved experimenting with this look! For the black and shading I used C1, C3, & N7.
