Halloween Whimsy

I had this cute image colored for some time now, and finally got a chance to turn it into a card. It was one of the new rubber stamps illustrated by Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy Stamps. Isn't it adorable!! The name of the stamp is "Trick or Treating".

Of course I wanted to color the little girl in a lady bug costume, only I didn't realize that I colored it backwards, as lady bugs are red with black dots not black with red dots.  My 7-year old however noticed it right away after seeing it LOL. 
I did like how the coloring turned out, so I just left it as is, especially since I did all the fussy cutting  before my daughter told me about it being wrong.


Here is the list of copic colors used:
Skin: E0000, E00, E21, E11
Girl Costume/boots: C0, C2, C4, C6, C
Wings: B0000, B00, B02,  B05
Hair: E31, E35, E37
 Puppy: E51, E31, E35, E37
Cape/Hat: BV00, BV02, BV04, BV08, Y11, Y15

And here is another view.
The whole image was stamped a second time onto gray card stock, then I adhered the fussy cut colored pieces onto the gray. 

Not sure if you can tell, but I have randomly used the happy halloween circle postmark sentiment all over the designer paper in the back, and then I stamped it onto white and used a circle punch to punch it out, then added it to the left. It's from the set "Holiday Postmark greetings". I just recently got that set, but it's an older Whimsy set, and comes with several circle postmark greetings for different holidays. Very versatile. Here's a view of the complete set. I love that it includes the postmark lines on the  bottom. 
Holiday Circle Postmarks

The  letters used to make the word "Boo" are from Whimsy's alphabet set "Spell it Out".
Designer Paper is from one of My Minds Eye 6x6 paper packs, but I changed the look of it, but stamping the circle halloween sentiment all over it. I embellished with some ribbon and twine, a little black button, and then to finish it off I added a die cut bat (using a cuttlebug die).

And that should be about all about the card. Hope you like it!
