Fall Color Challenge

Hi everyone Fall is in the air and it is the perfect time to join in the Hiding In My Craft Room Fall color challenge.  This week the challenge is being sponsored by Digital Delights.and one lucky person who participates in the challenge will receive a $5 gift certificate.

Not sure of the name of the Halloween image but I think it is cute. Here is my inspiration piece.

When I think of  Fall colors I think of oranges, reds, yellows, and browns.  Because the image is Halloween I threw some black in. 

For my background I decided to see what would happen covering white card stock with chalk pastels and then taking a wet stiff bristle brush and brushing over it. The brush ended up causing the paper to pill but I like the technique. When the card was dry I went ahead and rubbed yellow, orange and red chalks and then blended. I then rubbed paste wax and buffed it. I love how the areas where it is pilled took on a darker color.

The bat and Jack O Lantern is from Silhouette's Bat Skeleton cutting file. I ungrouped the file as I only wanted the solid bat and wanted to cut the pumpkin out by itself as I wasn't sure I was going to use it.

I traced and detached the bee in Silhouette Studio after I did some resizing. Then I was able to use the Shadow feature under image effects. I didn't think that there was going to be white spots since I did the outline mode when tracing. After printing and cutting out I used a color pencil to fill in the white spots and to have the shadow all one color.

I used both Tombow Markers and color pencils to color the image. 

Thank you for stopping by. Do come back again! Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
