Polkadoodles - Digi Queens Week 7

Hello and good morning Polkadoodlers -

Wow, I can't believe another fortnight as flown by!

Anyhoo, it's my delight to share my Digi Queen themed card with you this week - and the theme is Halloween.  It's one of those themes that you either love or hate --- it's a bit like marmite. :)

For my card I used Polkadoodles Witchie Witchie 2013 Digi Download Bundle for the tree/owl and bats (there's loads of fab Halloween stuff in the bundle), and the gorgeous girl is a digi stamp called Witchie Skeleton 2013.  The links can be found below.

Here's What I Did
To start with I made an A5 black card base. I matted orange and black card onto the base along with the orange swirly coloured paper which was made using Pan Pastels. The tree/owl, girl, bats and pumpkin are all Polkadoodles images which I coloured my Copic pens.  All the coloured elements were fussy cut out and glued onto the card base along with my die cut fence. To finish off I punched out a few dots from black glitter card.

To colour her hair I selected 3 purple shades - dark, mid and light and 2 shades of green - light and mid. Purple - I started at the crown with the deepest shade and flicked a little way out, then using my mid shade and starting where the deep shade finished I flicked further towards the area where I thought the light would hit, ensuring I left a white area.  Green - Then from the edge of her hair I started with my mid shade and flicked towards the purple, again not too far. Using my lightest shade of green I flicked towards the purple, again leaving a small area of white.

Using my lightest purple shade I coloured in the white area that was left, and blended up towards the mid purple shade and down to the light green until they blended together. This effect is simple to do but it might take a few goes to get it right - it also looks fab on fairy wings too.
