Over The River

It's Wednesday! So time for another challenge at Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge Blog where challenges are always Anything Goes and prizes are awarded from one or more sponsors.  Stop by the blog to check it out! The sponsor this week is Jan’s Digis and I used an image and sentiment from a set named "Over the River." I wanted to keep the image simple so colored the image with just a few Spectrum Noir markers, a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen and a silver gel pen. I frame the image with an item from my scrapbook stash and printed off a single wreath from the image, fussy-cutting and adding it to the inside sentiment.

Wanted to make a card to enter into the Outlawz Purple Challenge… and decided to make a rich purple background for this Halloween ATC that I created from a handful of scraps. The ghost image is from a Bugaboo digi named “Ghost Peeker.  I printed the image onto vellum and also cardstock. Colored the candy corn with a few Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. The BOO letters were trimmed from a page of orange and black scrapbook paper I picked up at Goodwill. It included “Brooks High School” in bold lettering. I cut out the B and two O’s then layered them to create the sentiment. A scrap of starry night sky patterned paper, a circle of yellow paper and torn vellum scraps finish up the fun scene. Am entering this into several challenges including Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge (Orange, plus yellow and purple, with a twist of vellum.)
