I colored. And it turned out pretty.

In a swap, Raeanna sent me a bunch of large images to color.  As I said before, I'm not a huge fan of coloring, though I'd like to learn to enjoy it.  I chose this witch sitting on a pumpkin because the markers I have suited its color scheme better than some of the other images she sent.  I had to supplement my Copics with Bic Mark-its, so there are a few streaky areas that I just couldn't get to smooth out.  It was the first big thing I've finished coloring.  Usually I end up throwing them away early on and giving up.  There are plenty of mistakes, but it's not a train wreck, so I used it. 

I used Nesties to cut her out and add a scallop border.  The orange cardstock is stamped with a witch hat in Only Orange.  The sentiment stamp and the hat are by Studio G.  The ribbon is Michael's and the brad is Studio G from Walmart.

All together now: 
Thanks for visiting.  Did you see that OWH has a new challenge due the end of this month?  It's for half and half general and fall/winter cards.  Holiday-specific are OK, but they love getting general fall and winter cards too since they can be sent for many weeks instead of for just one specific date.  

Cards shipped to OWH in 2012: 928 blank and 215 AnyHero (as of 6/26)
Cards shipped to OWH in 2011: 1695

  1. Great job! Particularly like how you did the sentiment...too cute! TFS!!!

  2. She's adorable! Wonderful coloring job and I like how you did the ribbons with the sentiment.

  3. This is great! I don't like coloring for the same reasons so I hardly have any image stamps to speak of. You did a great job on this girl; I'm thinking maybe I should try markers now. (Usually use colored pencils.) Tsk, now I have to go out and buy an image stamp ;). Thanks for the inspiration and Happy Half-n-Half Card Drive! :)
