Color challenge 183

Hi there. I did get a chance to play along with the color challenge today. This was a tough one in my opinion. I am just not crazy about the green galore with the grey and riding hood red. I still do like my card though.

I stamped my new fabulous image from DRS designs with palette noir and colored it with my new wonder product- Shimmerz paint. I only used the paint to color my image and still got the wonderful shading with the exception of using a green prismamarker on the middle of the leaves. I also mixed my beeswax and rustic red paints to get the orange for the pumpkin. You can do quite a bit with them. To accent my image I paper pierced around it and added some pewter brads.

Here are some close up for you so you can see the shimmer and shading:

stamps- DRS designs (L791)
ink- palette noir, ruby red
CS- riding hood red, green galore, going grey, white
accessories- Shimmerz paint (angel wings, coffee, rustic red, beeswax, royal red), paper piercer, pewter brads

I hope you like my card today- have a wonderful day!!
