A Hallowen Easel Card

Hello all! This fortnight's challenge at The Poodles Parlour is Halloween and is sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps and The Digi Garden. Be sure to check out my teamies inspiration too. They will certainly put you into the Halloween Spirit, get it, Spirit, hahaha. I know, puns are awful but I couldn't resist.
I used a Silhouette file to create my easel card. I merged the Bugaboo images Hween Brat Wizard and Hween Bench. I colored them with my Prismacolor pencils and used purple and gold Stickles on his hat and robe and orange Stickles on the pumpkin. Bling on a roll down the side. Pop dots lift my bat and sentiment off the page. The pumpkins along the bottom are another Silhouette cut file and I left room for a sentiment there too which I will add with a white gel pen once I decide who this one is going to.
My lessons learned: I carefully colored and shaded my image and then decided he needed some sparkle. That explains the Stickles. However, I didn't need to be as precise with my coloring if I had decided that ahead of time. Ah well, he has a lovely shaded robe and hat...under all those Stickles ;o)
