There's Magic in the Air!

Good evening crafty friends!

Hope everyone is well. Phew, we've made it - half term beckons, so it's a week off from the alarm clock! :oD If you've already had half term in your area, sorry :o( !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's New Release Inspiration time at All Dressed Up and Wendy has drawn 4 super-cute digis that are perfect for October crafting - you may have already seen the first New Release Inspiration post (click here if you haven't as you don't want to miss the wonderful creations by half the Blog DT!) and now it's time for the other half of the Blog DT to have fun with these images:

Top left is Double the Trouble, top right is Have a Magical Evening, bottom left is Little Birdie and bottom right is Monsterific and if you click on each image name you will taken straight to that image in the shop!

I've been working with Have a Magical Evening and here's my card:

My card recipe is as follows:
  • Card base - is black cardstock which has been cut, scored and folded to make a DL cardbase
  • Design Paper - is by Summer at the now closed Summertime Designs. This paper comes from Summer's digital kit Happy Halloween and is called Web Paper
  • Image - is the super cute witch Have a Magical Evening drawn by Wendy at All Dressed Up Digital Stamps. I've brought this swinging witch to life using my Spectrum Noir Pens in the listed colours before adding a dash of white glitter to the moon and stars:
    • Skin - FS2, FS3, FS4, TN4, FS8 (Blush)
    • Hair - IG1, IG2, IG3, CR1, OR3, TN4
    • Hat - FS5, CR1, OR3, TN4, TN8, IG3, IG5, IG7, IG9
    • Dress and Boots - IG3, IG5, IG7, IG9
    • Underskirt and Stockings - FS5, CR1, OR3, TN4, TN8
    • Moon - IG1, IG2, IG3
    • Outline - IG1, IG2
  • Black Ribbon - from my stash

I hope I've inspired you to head over to the Esty Store and pop this cutie in your basket, but if you're in need of further inspiration please head over to the Blog and check out the other beautiful creations by my clever teamies.

Don't forget that we have our Anything Goes with an All Dressed Up Image Challenge on the blog until 14th November 2016 and the Facebook Dressie Girls are hosting their Halloween/Autumn challenge until 31st October 2016.
