Hi, everyone! Another Wednesday means another Mo make from me. This time I’ve made a Halloween project, we’re getting closer and closer, right? Mo has come out with some adorable new images lately, and I totally fell for Esmarelda, isn’t she the cutest little witch ever? I thought so, so I colored her up and made a box to put her on. Okay, so the box was already made, but I did cover it with patterned paper!
My box is just over 5 x 5″, and about 2 3/4″ tall, meaning there’s lots of room for candy inside – half the fun of Halloween, right? I went with bright, in your face Halloween colors and added a couple of bats to embellish slightly.
A closer look at my image. This was such a joy to color, even in orange with lots of pumpkins. I don’t like the taste of pumpkins, but they’re fun to color, and I feel like I struck gold with my orange combo. Doesn’t really happen a lot, as I’m not usually one to color orange, but I love how they turned out.
I put some diecut letters on the side of the lid and the box itself. I diecut the letters from black craft foam and also from the patterned papers and glued them together. Added a few purple Papirdesign enamel dots as a last touch.
Here are the colors I used for my image. I can’t remember the last time I entered a challenge, so I thought I would join the 100th challenge over at Copic Marker Norge with this box. As a former design team member, I just can’t pass up the chance to join in on this milestone, which happens to coincide with their 7th birthday – and their moodboard is perfect for my pumpkin witch.
