Color Hues #71

Afternoon and as it's the 1st of the month we have a new colour combo at Color Hues. Here's my take on this new duo.

When I first saw this duo I had to reach for this cute LOTV image, Halloween.
After stamping and colouring with Copics, I fussy cut it and put it to one side while I got the background done. This took a little time, for over a week the image was sat on my desk with inspiration missing! Eventually I found some NitWits DP and printed off a sheet. My printer is not behaving and the end result was paler that it should have been, so I took my Wilted Violet DI and inked over the top. Where there were white dots on the DP, they went darker for some reason, the DI must have reacted with the printer ink., but I do like the effect. 
So I printed off a sentiment from my computer and die cut it to make a background panel for my image to sit on, adding some lines to ground the image. The image was added with pads and the panel to the DP with them too. My DP was then added to an A6 side fold note card.

It all came together in the end. For more colour inspiration, check out what the rest of the DT have come up with here, they why not add your creation to the gallery?

Joining in over at:-


  1. This duo couldn't be cuter! As usual, your coloring is fantastic--and your fussy cutting is great too! So frustrating when printers (or any techno device) causes problems, but you overcame it with great success!

  2. You may have struggled to get everything to come together for this card Julie, but your perseverance paid off as this card is absolutely ADORABLE!! The colors worked beautifully together and how perfect for someone who has a birthday on or close to Halloween! LOVE it!! Hugs. :0)

  3. Oh my goodness Jules, this is super fun! I love the images and I bow to you for the perfect fussy cutting!! Technology can be such a pain in the neck, but the results of your card and so wonderful!
