Witchy Halloween 04394
Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT500), has us caseing our own first uploads to our Splitcoast galleries. Yikes! Since that’s a scary proposition, I went with 2 Halloween cards I uploaded my first week as a member on Splitcoast. For this card, I cased THIS one of mine (below). 

witch_shoes For new card, I used a piece of glitter sticker back c/s for the upper section. It was silver but I used an orange Copic to color it then a curved border die to cut it.The little cat in the moon was also stamped on some of the glitter c/s & colored before fussy cutting. The witch legs were colored w/ Copics and I added some stickles to the purple stripes of her stockings. A few sequins were sprinkled around for more glitzThe finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 & these are the Copics I used.

On my second card, I cased THIS card from the very next day (below) which was appropriately, from the very first WT Challenge I did! 

WT111 Fright Night For my new card, I have no clue as to why I thought it would be a good idea to split the pumpkins image in two. After I did that, I spent probably an hour trying to figure out how to arrange them. 2 of something in most cases doesn’t look as pleasing as 3 of something. So I have a tiny little greeting underneath (no room for anything larger). 
After coloring & die cutting the pumpkins, I matted them on larger black squares and added a stacked die cut button to sort of “join” them. I had this fun orange/black polka dot ribbon but the orange was too light so I took a darker orange Copic and colored over the dots. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

Well, that’s my updated cases of my early uploads. I don’t think I can take any more embarrassment today after looking at my first uploads, lol.

    Isn’t it funny how bad we think our first cards were? Have to say though, your firsts are extremely polished! Though compared to your seconds well……!! They are both awesome and I just love the second with the two little pumpkin squares and then adding the saying as your third block!Awesome cards!
