Magic is a faculty of wonderful virtue…

Sharing the lone Hallowe’en card I’ve made for this year featuring the super cute Halloween Sprite from Aurora Wings.

To make up my card I’ve followed the current sketch over at Sketch Saturday and used lots of layers of cardstock for added interest and dimension.  I fussy the little sprite and added her over a piece of designer paper the lucky recipient actually gave me.  For the strip element I chose to use both washi and twine so I could also play along at TGIF.

Over at As You Like It they want to know if your favourite is Autumn or Hallowe’en colours.  Too easy for me, I absolutely love Hallowe’en.  Not sure why, it was never a big deal here in Australia when I was growing up and I hate creepy crawlies and spooky things but am a huge hoarder of Hallowe’en crafty supplies.  I also love the combo of purple, green, black and orange.

I took this little cutie with me on a visit to my friend yesterday and she was received with much pleasure.  We won’t talk about the fact I was up most of Saturday night creating away at the present that accompanied the card and I was still colouring this image at lunchtime yesterday when I should have been in the car!  Was good to dust my Copics off though and actually make a Hallowe’en card.
