Sweet Sunday 33 - Popped Candy Corn
Here is my take on Karen's Sweet Sunday challenge for this week. I'm trying to get all my Halloween cards done because we are going on vacation in 2 weeks so I won't have much time to do them after that.
Here are the card details:
The orange paper is Basic Grey, the brown is Bazzill, and the DP stripe was borrowed from a friend so I don't have the brand name for you. I used a CB embossing folder on the orange for texture. The candy cane tree, owl and sentiment are from and acrylic set by Impression Obsession. I double stamped the image with Memento ink and colored in the candy cane with SU markers and the tree, grass and pumpkin with prismacolor pencils. I clear embossed the second image, cut out all of the candy corns, the owl and pumpkin and popped them on dimensionals over the original image. By the way, there are 58 little candy corns on the tree...thus proving, once again, I am the Queen of Pop:))) Finally, I added more of those crystal candy corns down the left side of the card with glue dots.
We have been having some great cool weather this week with temps barely getting to 70 degrees. It's been great for late August and early September when we usually have hot, hot, humid weather. Fall is definitely in the air.
