Black Magic

I've used Blue Pumpkin for this card from Ching Chou Kuik and guess, what no blue in sight!  I went very traditional with the pumpkin colour.  I also love doing black candles it some how adds to the spooky feel.  The image is colours with ProMarkers and I've used black polychromos pencil to add extra shading.
The starry looking die some of you might recognise.  It's the Memory Box snowflake corner one only I've used black card for the black magic theme.

the sentiment is made up from black glitter letters which I've had for ages and can be found in Hobby Craft.

The image is mounted onto some black and orange card stock.  I've then used one design paper which is actually a Christmas one from Maja Designs.  Once I'd got the design paper onto the card I decided the top and right weren't distressed enough.  I've used an emery-board to do this with (nail file) :D 

The tiny glittery dots are from the glitter letters mentioned earlier and the tiny black stars are left overs from punching out a tag from a Spellbinders die - waste nothing - LOL!!

Amazing card, the image has such an haunting quality, which is softened by the kittens.

This is gorgeous and I love the colours you used along with all those pretty black die cuts. I would never have thought to use the snowflake corner for a Hallowe'en card, but it works fabulously! Thank you for joining in the Ching-Chou Kuik Challenge this time. Hope to see you again soon.
