Witch-Spaniel Halloween Card

Updated: Nov 4

Happy Howl-O-ween Divas- I'm thrilled you stopped by today! I would like to share with you my new Witch-Spaniel Digi Set. My inspiration for this set came from nephew's Cocker Spaniels- Archer, Aria and Woodhouse. The Halloween spirit "moved" me and I hope it moves you too! Come along as this cute pup puts a spell on you....

To begin- divide your sheet into 2 halves. Size your main image 5-1/2"x4-1/4" and place about 1/2" from the bottom of the page. Draw a circle about 1-1/4" and place about 3/4" from the hat. Place your sentiment in the moon if you wish.

Copy and paste on the second half of the page. You will need both images.

This is actually a fairly simple card, just multiple steps in the coloring.

Color your images as desired; I used COPIC® Markers. Color both images. FYI- The base image I did not detail as much as the image to top with.

I used 2 shades of blue as my highlights on the hat- then my variations of gray/black.

The color list is attached above with hints. I hope it is helpful.

After coloring the main image- using Washi-Tape®- I taped off the ground horizon line.

Using a flicking motion around the moon, I started adding the glow.

I built the color out starting with Y00, B000, B00, B45, and last B97 as shown.

I printed a copy paper image and quickly fussy cut to make a mask for my dog and moon images.

Using a stiff paint brush and some 91% Alcohol; I splattered the sky to give it a bit of a magical/mystical effect.

The second image, fussy cut carefully.
