SC Make Me Smile

Good Thursday Morning Peeps!! Hope you all are having a great week so far, the weekend is almost here!!!

The card I am sharing today was made with this weeks sketch on splitcoast. It is another Halloween card. I used the fun little set, Twick or Tweet. I stamped the image onto watercolor paper with black stazon and colored it in with my aqua painter and my ink pads, the colors are pumpkin pie, summer sun, really rust, elegant eggplant.

The base of the card is made with basic black, followed by old olive and then the DS paper which is from the Cast-A-Spell pack. I wanted to make my main image panel, like a tag, so I used the tag corner punch on all the layers. The top is made up of circles, 1 inch and 3/4 inch, punched with old olive and perfect plum. I added a black brad to the center.

I used the top note die to make the side layer. I cut two one in basic black and one with the DS paper. I added black and plum ribbon across the middle and added a black bow.

After getting this all together and looking at it, I think I should have used some pumpkin pie color in it somewhere, to tie in the main image. Oh well, to late now. I have been is such a creative funk lately, doubting everything I do.

I have some exciting things coming up in the near future, and I think I just over think everything and then end up doubting my own ability to create!!!! Dang it!!!! LOL!! I am cracking under the pressure........ROFLOL!!!

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
