I really how the MFT Color Combination played so well with the Halloween Challenge by D.R.S Designs. The hardest part was glueing that thin piece of green fun foam. My go-to adhesive just wasn't working. lol  
  The Great Card Challenge Mash Up, Paper Smooches, Pink Paislee

I want to let you in on a secret, .......that watercolor paper was from the Creatology which you can find at Michael's Arts and Crafts. I knew I needed to use the colors green, purple, and orange. I just wasn't sure how the various colors would play with each other. So instead of using my prime watercolor, I used the less expensive paper to do my experiments on instead. lol

Supplies are as follows:
Paper: Creatology Watercolor, Recollections 85lb Cardstock and 110 lb.
Stamps: Papersmooches-Chubby Chums, Pink Paislee- Phantom, Hampton Art-SC0661
Inks (stamping): Lawn Fawn - Sugar Plum and Manatee, Memento - Tuxedo Black and Tangelo, Colorbox Pigment Ink - Fresh Green 
Embossing Powder: Recollections - Clear  Embossing Tool: Recollections
Inks (background): Lawn Fawn - Sugarplum and Jalapano, Tim Holtz: Distress- Dusty Concord and Mowed Lawn
Copic Colors: YR02, YR04, YR21, YR24, E39
Spectrum Noir: BG2 and Blender
Dies: We R Memory Keepers - 21 Nested Circles  Die Cutting Machine: BigShot

I would love to know what you think. :)
