What happens after dark

Here's a card of mine for the Anything goes with a twist challenge at Fitztown. I have used one of the Halloween images, which you can find in the category Fae.

I'm actually quite happy about how this card turned out.
I managed to cut out the branches by hand, with a pair of nail scissors (you know, the kind of scissors with a small bend). 

The twist is to use something old and something new. What's old in this card is the forest background, which I cut out from an "old" children's magazine (Kamratposten 2007). The pumpkins are new, and come from a paper sheet named Scary Moment/Pumpkin by Landstoken AB.

I have coloured the image with Promarkers and some Traditional Craft Paint: Sun Gold for her hair and clothing. I've also added some Glitter Glaze (Panduro) as a final touch to her clothing. I have used UNIQ Pearl - Brilliant green for the gloves and the dragon fly. Finally I've added some Stickles to the leaves. 

The bat comes from the same source as the forest background. The pine cone comes from a wrapping paper, which I cut out last year and saved for future autumn cards. I think that's all...

Thanks for stopping by!
