Purple, Orange, Green! Eek! It's Halloween!

 Howdy!  It is time for another Funkie Junkie Boutique challenge!  Sara Emily has us creating for Halloween this time around with the Purple, Orange, Green! Eek! It's Halloween! challenge!  Here is how she describes the challenge: 

 " I love Halloween, and I would love to see your vintage or shabby chic Halloween creations, whether it be a card, tag, canvas, or any other make! If Halloween is not your cup of tea, simply use the colors purple, orange and green on your project to play along."

I have anxiously awaiting these flowers from the new Stampers Anonymous Dearly Departed set.  I could envision them cut out and colored.

 I decided to create a Halloween card for my daughter.  I started with stamping the flowers twice in black ink.  I colored with watercolor pencils and waterbrush.  I colored with dye inks on another set which was a softer effect.  

I inked up the background stamp with crackling campfire with a spritz of shimmery pearl and created a background.  I then colored some baubles with copic markers and added them for accents.

These flowers are beautiful and can be used for so many different projects, here is how it looks without the sentiment.

Please come join us in the fun and share your Halloween project! The winner will earn a chance to be a Guest Designer at a future date at The Funkie Junkie Boutique blog, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. There are also Top 3 Badges for three additional outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team.

Thanks for stopping by! 




  1. Suzz, you always leave me smiling over your wonderful creativity! I love how you've managed to include each of the colors I offered as an option to Halloween crafting! Those flowers are gorgeous, and not a bit creepy! I can see this card used for many occasions. Adding them over the Tapestry background gives them both a bit of a sinister, as well as elegant, look. Well done!

  2. This is stunning. You made the colours work so nicely together and your colouring makes the flowers pop against that gorgeous background.

  3. Suzz your card is totally gorgeous. The cutting out around those flowers must have taken some time but is so worth it against the tapestry background. A wonderful way to get in the Halloween spirit without using the usual images.

  4. Such a beautiful card! The way you combined the colours is stunning - I love it 😀. Happy and creative wishes! Hugs, Jo x
