Dottie's World Challenge-Halloween-ish

Hello and Happy Sunday. ;O)
If you are canadian you are probably getting ready to roast your turkey...because it is the thanksgiving weekend this weekend..oh I LOVE turkey!
It's also another great week at the Dottie's World Challenge blog this weekend...and I am the hostess this week.
{blushing...}
I decided to do the predictable and ask for Halloween themed cards. It doesn't have to be Halloween completely-you can just use Halloween colors if you are opposed to the Halloween thing. :o) But you must use a Charmed Downloadable.
Here are the complete details for my card:
I used the kneeling Cornflower Pixie Chick from the #2 collection, you can see it here
I colored her in with my copics...of course. I also added some doodlebug sugar coating in purple and green...LOVE that stuff-it's such a fine glitter-I use my glue pen to adhere it. I even added a touch of it to her eye lid for eye shadow.
I also made a mask of the image...by making two copies on my printer; one on Manga Cardstock and the other on paper :o) I cut out the paper image and then attached it with some temporary adhesive (tombow) over top of my cardstock image and then used my copic airbrush system to airbrush the background.


I printed my image first and then I used my nesties to cut out the curved square shape.
The paper is K&Company
Flowers are Prima
Filigrees & Brads are SU...thanks to my friend Shelly who is a SU! demonstrator!
Black ribbon is CTMH
Gingham ribbon is from walmart
That's about it!
Make sure you check out DW Challenge blog to see what all my talented co-designer's came up with.
