Day Nine of 31 Days of Halloween

My project for today is another card. This one uses a vintage image but instead of altering it, I played off the expressions on their faces. I left the mostly sepia tones as is only adding a spot of dark orange here and there. I found papers to match the general tones in a paper pad from Me amd My Big Ideas and I'm pretty sure that strip of red/orange is something I made in Photoshop.



That"s a mirror inside the cutout witch image from 100 Proof Press. I did a booklike job of mounting the mirror in a circle cut out of chipboard and then wrapping the witch page around that (like you do on book covers). The type was all done in Photoshop.

Everyone's creations were outstanding yesterday! I know how hard everyone is working to keep coming up with these wonderful projects so I want you all to know how much I enjoy looking at them. Particulars about the hop can be found on Terra's blog ----> and Lisa is the next stop after me. Thank you again for all of your kind comments!!

Sharon, I will definitely take you up on the offer of help in CS6, but probably not until November. For now I will just use what is easiest for me. Thank you so much for the offer of help. It warms my heart and gives me hope that someday I will master that beast! BTW...I will be hitting you up for help with clay too. Oh, if only I had more free time! I could learn so many cool techniques!

Oh, I hadn't seen this one finished! I think it is up near the top of my favorites. I love how you used the image - and layered all the neat papers and added the words - that is the perfect saying for those odd people! The inside turned out great - super idea with the mirror and I love how you put the witch hat inside. Bravo, bravo, you clever, clever girl!
