The Paper Players 110

Friday, August 31, 2012

Now that September is nearly here the days are shorter and nights are noticeably cooler.  I find myself gravitating towards cards using more fall-like colors.  Of course, the upcoming season also means Halloween and you may have read here a time or two that I really love making Halloween projects.  The sketch challenge this week at The Paper Players got me thinking about an old favorite pack of Halloween DSP called Halloween Night and thus my card was born.

In case you're wondering, the pretty purple-ish paper you're seeing is not Wisteria Wonder.  Is is the long-retired Vintage Violet and one of my all-time favorite colors.  I can't think of a Halloween project without thinking of this paper!  The witch is from Halloween Hoot and although her face is colored a little darker than I wanted, she is pretty darn cute!  I'm not at all sure that witches are supposed to be "cute" but I couldn't resist that description about this ol' gal.  It's like she's kicking up her heels to dance a little jig!

Lately I've been experimenting with Photoshop and how I edit my photos and the resulting blurry photos are making me wonder whether I need to schedule a visit with my eye doctor pronto, or go back to the old way I edited.  I've got a long weekend coming up so I hope to do some more experimenting.  If my cards look a little blurry I apologize, and hopefully I'll figure out what to do soon.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!  I really appreciate you taking the time to visit and comment!
