Eerie Scene

Hi there!  Happy Wednesday!  Hope you are having a great week so far!  I managed to sneak into my craft room again and do a little coloring.  Have you heard that the Make it Colourful Challenges have started back up?   I have always enjoyed playing along with these challenges!  They really stretch my coloring skills, limited such as they are, and I appreciate the chance to practice and the inspiration from the extraordinary DT!  Challenge #1 has both an easy and a hard component.  You can do either or both.  The easy challenge is to color an image with mainly black and orange and the hard challenge is to create a spooky scene.  I decided to combine them on one coloring project.

Here is what I came up with:

I used some patterned paper from the K & Co. Brenda Walton Halloween pad from last year.  For my scene, I merged two digis from Make it Crafty - Eerie Scene and Witchy Wanda.  I printed the merged image on MiC Blending Card and colored it all with my Copics.  I did Wanda in black and orange for the easy challenge and created the spooky background scene for the hard challenge.  I added a bit of  metallic detail on her skirt and boots with my Black and Silver Letraset Metallic markers. The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  It is part of the Beware Halloween Word Art set in Paulette's store here. Some Webster's Pages black velvet trim and a 3-D bat finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored scene:

Copic Colors:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E13
Hair: C5, C7, C9
Dress and boots: C1, C3, C5, C7, C9
Accessories and pumpkins (orange): YR15, YR16, YR18, YR21
Fence: W1, W3, W5, W7
Moon: Y11, Y15, Y32, Y35, Y38
Grass: G21, G94,G99, YG01, YG63
Sky: B000, B60, B91
Clouds: BV000, BV20, BV23, BV25, BV28
