This week's challenge at For Fun Challenges is a favorite of mine and not just because the prizes are provided by Bugaboo Stamps. This week, participants are asked to make a Halloween card without using the colors orange, black, or purple. I've always been a fan of using non-traditional colors with very traditional holiday images. I'm not sure why I love playing with color this way. Maybe it's because of that old flag optical illustion? Or the issue of Sesame Street Magazine I adored as a kid because all the characters were different colors than they should be? Chicken? Egg?
I'm entering this project into these challenges:
TIME OUT FOR KITTIES!
Working on goodie bags this week. I finally gave up on ever finding ones small enough for the cuteness level I desired and just went ahead and ordered them online.
Outlines Challenge (they're the company that made the fabulous stamp I used.) It may not look like I did much coloring, but I blacked in the blank parts and darkened the lines using colored pencils to make the image as vibrant and clear as possible.
Also entering this in the Quirky Crafts challenge.
I'm totally in a Halloweenie mood this week. Check out this adorabl kitty by Pollycraft:

I love this sneaky little bulldog by Mo's Digital Pencil. Usagi loves to grab plastic pumpkins and run. We thought it was the candy until we caught her stealing them just as often when they're empty. Silly dog!

Stampavie Halloween Challenge
I picked up some really nice, barely used, Lyra Polycolor colored pencils off of ebay and now I can't get enough of coloring with them.
