Hallowe'en Witch, Pumpkin & Spider!

Greeting Card Kids from Stampin'Up has several images of little children that are appropriate for various occasions throughout the year. Pumpkins, witches, brooms and spiders mean Hallowe'en to me!!

I started by stamping the main image onto Bella card stock so that I could colour it with copic markers. I didn't want a black outfit for the little witch, so I chose a variety of blue-violet and green copic markers for her outfit. The image was cut with a circle die, edges were sponged with Lovely Lilac ink and adhered to Tag Sale #4 cut from Royal Velvet card stock.

The spider and dotted line were stamped onto the main focal panel with Versamark and embossed with black embossing powder. The spider web was stamped onto a separate piece of card stock and also embossed, before cutting it out and adding a foam dimensional.  A green bow helps to add a bit more colour to the overall tag design.  The light lavender card base was repeatedly stamped with two stamps from the Tag-Its #7 set to create a background for the tag and image panel.
The inside of the card uses the same spider and the full size spider web, stamped in black ink and outlined with a Sakura glitter pen.
The sentiment was made by selectively inking two different stamps from 
 Mega Mixed Messages (ENJOY from "ENJOY the moment" and TODAY from "celebrate TODAY")
