The Paper Funday Challenges - Halloween or Use the Color Purple

Hi Crafty Friends!  It's the 1st Wednesday of the month and a new challenge has started at The Paper Funday Challenge Blog.  As always, the theme is Anything Goes with an optional Twist.  The Twist this month is Halloween or Use the Color Purple.

Our sponsors for the challenge are Paper Nest Dolls and Fred, She Said.  For my design team project, I used the Emma the Cat digital image from Fred, She Said to create a not so spooky Halloween card that features the challenge theme and twist.

This is an adorable image and I've colored Emma with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers.  The panel was cut using a Stitiched Rectangle Nesting Die from Kat Scrappiness, the papers are scrap snippets from my overflowing stash and the sentiment is from an older Recollections Set.  I chose to keep the stitched frame as part of the focal.

The sentiment strip has been backed with craft foam for dimension, Wink of Stella has been applied on various parts of the image and sequins added for additional sparkle.

Stop by the challenge blog this month and enter for your chance to win from our sponsors.  We would love to see your projects and hope to inspire you with ours.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
