Halloween Card

This week's card uses a Simply Betty Stamp as the feature. I have (In case you have not already worked it out!!) a range of her stamps in both digi and rubber format. This one I already had in rubber but have just bought a Jude Holiday Digi Bundle featuring this image and many others for Halloween, Christmas and Valentine's Day. Love them all!

My image is coloured using Copic markers. 
Skin: E21, E50 Cheeks: R11 Mouth: R27, E47, E05 Eyes: G07
Costume: BV02, V17, Y38, YR04, YR07
Shadows: W3
I created texture by stippling over the purple areas of the costume with the Copic 00 Blender. 

The background of the card was a piece of orange Bazzill paper which I embossed using a Sizzix Halloween Embossing folder from my collection. I inked around the edge using black Archival Ink. I had tried inking the whole design but decided that it made the card too dark. Instead of wasting the card, I simply turned it over to use the embossing in reverse.
The Sentiment was stampeded onto white card and this was mounted in a Spellbinders frame from Romantic Rectangles.
Martha Stewart's Creepy Fence punch was used for the background and the strip of Beware paper came from  a Dream Street Paper from the Superstition range- Spine Tingler.
