Happy Halloween!

Hi there!

This week at My Heart Pieces the challenge is Halloween!  As we all dress up at Halloween I thought I'd use Priyanka's "Jungle Queen" image for this challenge.  I think I might make myself a costume along these lines!  Both these images were printed to 4x6" size onto white cardstock on my Laser Jet Printer. 

This first card was coloured with my Prismacolor pencils.  I find I am beginning to like these more and more...  Once coloured I used the Spellbinders Labels 28 to cut it out.  I matted her onto Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells paper and hand cut the mat.  Then repeated the process onto black shiny packaging.  I used a piece of felt and a black ink pad to dry rub some black along the edges for a more grungy look.  I also added a gold hat charm that happen to fit her perfectly!  I used a black Sharpie to colour in the hat.
The card is 5.5 x 8.5".  I placed some Darice Steampunk Washi tape down the side of a 5.25 x 8.25" piece of Fanciful Floral paper (same line as above) then adhered the matted Jungle Queen.    The ribbon is from Michaels and the Mini Gears are from Tim Holtz.  I am liking this Steampunk thing!
Card #2 is more of a general card.  I loved the idea of 'Jungle' and so tried to make her truly jungle-like.  I coloured her in with my watercolour crayons and water pen then cut her out with Spellbinders Labels 20.  This time I did not use the largest size so I was able to cut the appropriate mat out of Karen Foster 'Spots' paper.  I edged both layers with a black marker. 
This card is 4x8" made from an 8x8" piece of printed cardstock in my stash.  I wrapped the front with 1.5" ribbon from Michaels then placed the matted queen on top.  I found that one piece of vellum showed through too much so cut out a second one then secured them with the EK Success Fastenaters.  The greeting is one from a set I've had for a while but not used!  the Word Art Stamps v.1 by Autumn Leaves.
