I seem to be in full Halloween mode and had a ball with a new image from Sandra Caldwell, #1061 Jolly Jacko. I've noticed the use of colored paper straws in crafting the and bought some Halloween ones quite awhile ago and thought I'd make a little wall for Jacko to peek over. I trimmed them to fit the bottom of the Spellbinders Labels 28 dies I used for the image and mat of my card. they were the perfect colors for the limited color scheme I had in mind. the mat is embossed with the Cuttlebug Polka Dots folder because I planned to enter this in the Outlawz Festive Fridays challenge again for Polka Dot Day. I've used black Alpha Beads and buttons with the shanks removed for the sentiment.
Here's a closeup of #1061 Jolly Jacko. I can't decide whether that smile is goofy or maniacal, but he does make me giggle. He's colored with Copics and I've added a little array of dots in the background to further the polka dot theme. (OOOOh, looky! there's some on the straw, too) He'd look equally cute peeking over a spooky fence, don'tcha think?
I'm entering this in the DL.Art September Linky challenge, Cards und More No Designer Paper, Cuttlebug Mania ATG with Die Cuts, Stampart Papel Retarte #85 ATG with a Halloween Twist, Colouring in Scrapland CAS (or Fully Loaded),
and Come and Get it Polka Dots.
