The Character Cafe – Witches Brew Challenge

Hi Everyone

This will be my last weekly challenge as a member of the Character Cafe Design Team, unfortunately I’ve had to leave the team due to a conflict of interests now that I am part owner of a different Digi stamp company.

Our challenge this week is hosted my Piali and she set us a Recipe challenge with a difference – to make a card using Halloween papers but not make it a traditional Halloween card but for another occasion instead and it had to be glittery too

So here is the card that I came up with

fairy belle card For my card I used one ot their older images called Fairy Belle and coloured her with my Prismacolor pencils and blended them with Sansodor (UK Gamsol) then I added some clear Sakura Glitter pen over some areas. The papers are from a Diecuts with a View kit that I purchased from QVCUK. To finish the card I cut out my greeting with my ‘Girls are Weird’ Sizzlet dies and covered them with glitter glue, the spiders are cut with a Quickutz die and the legs have been glittered with a Sakura glitter pen and I added some grosgrain and organza ribbon.

So that’s my take on the challenge, why not visit the other Design Team members and see what they came up with!! their blog links are in my sidebar.

If you like the images used here and by the Design Team members then why not visit the store HERE

Speak to you again soon
