Hydrangea Zing

Hi there, and Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends 🙂 Today, I have my first inspiration card for this month’s Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook challenge. Our theme for October is Halloween/Halloween Colors/Pumpkins. I used Copics in the Halloween colors for this card, using the lovely image Luxury Purple.

I find that this palette gives a somewhat unexpected zing to such a feminine image! I chose the background paper from a Halloween paper pad that I have in my stash, then layered the image with a die cut lace border, edged in black ribbon. I stamped the sentiment, then cut it with a fishtail banner die. For the flowers, which mirror the blossoms in the image, I used an old Martha Stewart punch, and arranged them over some die cut leaves.

I’d like to enter this in the following:
