Happy Halloween - Color Dare #315

My DT project for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #315 was made using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #286.  When I saw this color grid my thought was Candy Corn so I chose the right-hand row of Nectarine, Lemon and Black.  Went to Cricut Design Space, die cut candy corn using nectarine, yellow and white, outlined the sections, cut a black shadow around candy corn and stamped on the face and sentiment.  Found another stampset to use for the small candy corn, stamped in Nectarine on white cardstock, colored the yellow, layered on black paper for shadow, fussy-cut the candy corn, placed as embellishment on the background design paper selected and then framed it on black cardstock before adding to card base.     

After posting my card in several challenges... decided to repair the eyes because they appeared spooky instead of sweet and cute. The first attempt was to pull off the spooky googly eyes, re-stamp and re-apply the eyes with liquid glass. 

 Not happy with double stamping or torn paper. Second attempt removed the original white cardstock off the candy corn layer, re-cut, stamped and applied liquid glass carefully using less.  Now Happy … this gave me my sweet and cute as in above card.  

We use CTMH color names for reference... however, don't be afraid to use any products as long as you match closest to the colors in the Board.  Choose your row, column or diagonal and if desired, other colors from the Board can be used.  New Guidelines on Neutrals: White, Cream, Black, Gray, Kraft and Brown(s) are free to use; however if they are included
in the challenge graphic they MUST be used in your creation.

Please stop by and view the DT's inspiration and join us...

Oh, my goodness, Sue! That huge candy corn would put anyone into a diabetic coma! This is over-the-top cute and a great way to use the tic-tac-toe colors.
