My son is the biggest fan of Jack Skellington from A Nightmare Before Christmas!  So I couldn’t resist picking Jack the Pumpkin King by Sassy Designs for my latest DT card for Crafting From The Heart!  Our new challenge starts today; the theme is Anything Goes and we’re sponsored by Sassy Designs and Angi’s Digi Stamps.

I stuck to a CAS design, to keep the colour palette mainly black and white.  I’ve used Pro-Markers to colour Jack (Cool Grey 1 – 5 and Black) – the majority of his clothing is actually the two darkest shades of Cool Grey, with a smudge of Black for emphasis.  I still try to avoid colouring black (and red!) as I find it a little tricky, but I’m pleased with the result on this card.  The sentiment was added in Silhouette Studio before printing the image, using Chiller font.  Finally a black mat beneath the image, and it’s good to go!  Now I just need to keep it safe until November…..think I may have been a bit premature this year 😉
