The recent release of ‘Beautiful Halloween Characters‘ at Make it Crafty wasn’t just about Halloween. I really wanted them to be able to be used for other occasions too which is why they are supplied with and without their accessories. By colouring them in different colours and switching up the sentiment you add you can turn them into an ‘any occasion’ card.
Today I wanted to share how the gorgeous Venora the Wizard can grant a special Birthday wish!
Here’s a close up of the colouring. Sorry I don’t have a list of colours this time.
If you’d like to watch the Periscope videos that I created when colouring the background and sparkle you can view them here
After I cut the image to size using my favourite Lawn Fawn rectangle stitched die I glued it to the base card and then spritzed the whole image with Tattered Angels glimmer mist to add a faint sparkle across the whole card.
I used the 3″ Birthday chipboard word for this card.
I glued the bottom layer of the word birthday into position and then coated the top word with my favourite DI colour Peacock Feathers and a dusting of Chipped Sapphire. Then I glued it into position. I wasn’t sure how I was going to add the ‘wishes’ sentiment at first and finally decided to use vellum. Luckily I was able to pop up the bottom of the ‘y’ and tuck it under.
To finish I just added glossy accents to the birthday word and scattered a bunch of dots around the background plus a few sequins to add a little more sparkle.
I hope I’ve inspired you to look at the ‘Halloween’ images in a different way!
