August DT Project for Scrap N' Dipity

Calling all Halloween Fans out there!  After taking a short break because of my knee replacement, I am happy to be back with the August Design Team Project for Scrap N' Dipity.  Alisha has outdone herself with this one folks!  She is offering this new image not only as a black and white download that you can colour for yourself but get this; she's also offering it coloured and ready to print!  Some folks are amazing with their Copics and Spectrum Noirs.  They have the blending down to a fine art.  Several of our Design Team members are such people.  Actually they probably all are.  I am not.  I have tried and sometimes the image comes out okay but mostly not.

So when Alisha offered this image pre coloured, of course I snapped it up.  I printed this image off on a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of white cardstock.  I actually had the image x 4 on the one sheet.  I have used 3 and saved the 4th for another project that I had in mind.  By using the pre coloured image I was able to make up 3 cards in the time it would've taken me to do 1 if I coloured it.  The colours are all boldly vivid and it looks like I've done an excellent job with my colouring.  It was so easy to make a card and have the image "pop."  I made one for a friend who has a Halloween birthday, I made one as an invitation to a Halloween Party and one as a Happy Halloween card for a friend who loves Halloween more than Christmas!  Can you imagine?  LOL  So instead of mailing her a Christmas card, I mail a Happy Halloween card.   3 cards in the time it takes to make one.  If your colouring skills still need practice, there's no need to put your card making on hold until you think you perfect it.  I will still be using my markers to practice but for now I have 3 cards that look good because of Alisha's image. 

As if all of this wasn't incentive enough, here's one more.  Alisha currently has this image on sale for only $1.00!  Regular price $3.50.  I'm horrible at math but I think that's like 70% off! 

Here's the link to buy Josie Zombie Witch. 

Comments are always welcome, but please remember to be kind!  Thanks for coming by!

Your image is really cute! You fussy cut so well, I mean really REALLY well. I recognize the background die cut on the first card. You sent me several of these lovely pieces and I thank you for them :D Your friends are going to open some really awesome happy mail from you. Especially your friend who enjoys Halloween more than Christmas.
Hugs - Leslie
