* Happy Spook-oween! *

   Hey, y’all! I cannot believe that it’s already October! That means it’s time for another Mood Board Challenge from Craftin’ Desert Divas! Remember, to play along, just use CDD products, post a photo of your project in the Monthly Challenge Folder located in the Craftin’ Desert Divas’ Gallery, and then also post your challenge on social media with #CDDMONTHLY so we can find it.

   Now, for my card, I didn’t go for the “fall” look or colors of the inspiration board… I went for the little word in there, “October”. I have NEEDED to make this card since I first laid eyes on this sweet little witch troll!

   To start my card, I wanted the total focus to be this witch riding her broom in front of the moon, so I made a circle shaped card. I also added my sentiment to the inside of the card. I used the Scalloped Circle dies to make my card base and a front panel for my card. Then, I cut out some purple glitter cardstock using the Shake It Up circle die. Finally, I cut some Bristol smooth cardstock using the circle die from the Scalloped Circle die set. I inked this up with Black Soot Distress Oxide ink and sprayed it heavily with water. I wanted the color to be really muted, but still have a lot of texture. I added some more texture by spraying the moon with a shimmer spray from W Plus 9, then mounted this piece on foam tape and adhered it to the front of my card base.

   Next, I colored up my images using Copic markers and cut them out with my Scan N Cut (this machine still blows my mind!). I adhered these using Multi Medium in matte. Then I moved on to the inside of my card…

    When I was using my die on my sentiment strip, it moved just before it cut, so it’s crooked. To make it less noticeable, I tilted the banner strip a bit. This banner strip is from the Flag Banner dies set, but I did some partial die cutting to make it shorter. I also cut off the part outside the stitching.

   I wanted to put an image on the inside of the card, so I colored up this cute little pumpkin bucket with candy in it and attached it under my sentiment strip.

   For some finishing touches, I added Nuvo Shimmer pen to her dress and shoes, hat band, the toad’s hat band, the bat’s hair, and the pumpkin bucket’s eyes and mouth inside. I also added Glossy Accents to the eyes of both critters and also the buckle on her hat.

   I look forward to seeing what you create! Be sure to post it in the Gallery!
