As I don't usually do halloween cards, I was a little stuck on what to do for Rainbow Lady's challenge this week - then I remembered that I had downloaded a sheet of Papermania decoupage featuring Pumpkin and Aubergine, and Glenda kindly put a halloween freebie paper on her Artylicious blog............card sorted! The letters came from a Sizzix die that my friend Barbara got in a show raffle and passed on...........just don't ask which cat is on the broomstick!

poppy challenge

This card is my entry for two challenges - Rainbow Lady's for a poppy, and the sketch from Corrosive Challenge. The main poppy is from the Elusive Images Flora & fauna plate, and is one of my favourites. It was stamped onto white card with black versafine, then coloured with inktense watercolour pencils. The image was then coloured using a versamark pen and clear embossed, then spritzed with glimmer mists in wheatfield, meadow green and english ivy. The mini poppy heads came from a Graphicus Guild stamp set, and were coloured the same way as the main image, then stuck on with pinflair glue gel. The greeting is a peel off.
