SugarPea Designs August Release - Day 3

Hallowe'en is approaching and I know some of you will be getting well into making cards for that. Here in the UK, we tend not to send out cards specifically relating to this festival, so I've used these Darling Dragons for a quick card just to say Hello.




I've cut a piece of watercolour card with the SugarCut Birthday Journal Card Die and stamped the image and sentiment in VersaFine Onyx black as you can watercolour with this ink. Isn't that bat the cutest?? I think he might be my favourite stamp in this set!!!

I then watercoloured to my heart's content with a Daniel Smith dot sheet, some Winsor & Newton Cotman half pans, and Gansai Tambi Pearl and Gold. I just love mixing and matching!

I then found a bright piece of patterned paper from the Life Is A Carnival Pad and attached it to the back of a white card blank - they fit perfectly on a US A2 sized card - before attached the watercolour panel on the front with foam to pop it up.




The release will be available on Friday 24th at 6pm, EST time from the SugarPea Designs website. Don't forget to visit the SugarPea Designs blog every day and comment for a chance to win a daily prize!

Thank you so much for popping by and come back tomorrow for some more sneak peeks :)

Such a fun card, Ruth, and a great way to put those Halloween stamps to good use. Personally, I didn't even know Halloween was being celebrated in some parts of the world until I was in my early twenties.
