Witchy Women


CTD54 was the inspiration for this one. http://colorthrowdown.blogspot.com/

Good afternoon everyone. It is sunny again here in NE Ohio. We've had a mild (cool summer temps) and "rainy" summer. Because of the crazy weather, I have not took my girls swimming one time. I have had to wear a sweatshirt or sweater in the evenings- crazy! Oh well, summer has still been enjoyable. Enough rambling... on with my card description- I colored this image yesterday when I came across this challenge. I played around with the papers and layout for a while but was not satisfied "I was just not feeling it". I decided to walk away from it and work on it a little today. This is what I came up with.
The sketch is a past challenge from http://jacksonbelleembellishments.wordpress.com/. It was very hard to imagine these colors together, These are definitely colors that I do not reach for often. I'm not one that uses rust, gray, and blush (I do not know if I have ever used blush). I like rust but usually only use it in the fall. Pumpkin Pie is one of my favorite SU! colors and I use this color often (especially in the fall). The crazy combinations are what make color challenges so fun! Right?
Stamps: MFT
Paper: SU! rust, blush, pumpkin, gray, Basic Gray (Ambrosia) DP
Ink: SU! blush and rust for sponging, Black for image
Accessories: Gray Ribbon (miss Elizabeth's from Dollar Tree),Sentiment and bones (behind ribbon) K&Co. Halloween diecuts, Cloud 9 raindrops, Darice rhinestones.
Technique: Gamsol Blending with PrismaColor Pencils.

Northeast Ohio??? Where? That's where I live, too!

Fabulous cards! I did not think about a Halloween theme with these colors but it works! Your Witchy Women are terrific! Thanks for taking on the Throwdown!

I love these images with these colors too! Like Tammy, said, I would never have thought of Halloween, but they are PERFECT! Truthfully, I never use Blush either, and I normally would never think to put these colors together---but I LOVE to challenge you out there in blogland!!!
