This Halloween card I did for iCopic Challenge #5. The requirements were to use the Halloween colours of black, purple and orange. The stamp is Kraftin Kimmie's "Fred and Ginger". The image was coloured with copics - C9, C7, C5, V17, V15, V12, E18, E39, E99, YR23, E11, E00, E000, R20, R89, R85, C2, C1, C00. The image was cut out and embossed using Spellbinders Labels 8, the inside was sponged with London Fog and the edge inked with Tuxedo Black. The next purple layer was also cut with spellbinders Labels 8 largest die and then the orange was cut by tracing the outside edge of the largest die and hand cut. Then the black layer was cut the same was using a double pencil 1/4" tracer. The striped paper is from Basic Grey Eerie collection. A border trim was added using Martha Stewart border punch. This was all mounted on black and then put onto orange CS. For embellishment I added a chandelier and bats cut with the Slice die cut machine. I then added some orange gems to the chandelier to look like lights.
