Conie Fong is a self-taught artist residing in California, USA with her husband, daughter, pet hamster and fishes.  In her early childhood years, she was inspired by every kind of art and crafts.  She loved watching demonstrations by artists on the streets and at festivals and spent most of her free time perusing arts and crafts books in the library, drawing, crafting and experimenting with her art supplies at home.  Conie first started sharing her art with the world by selling ACEO reprints of her ACEO paintings of fairies, mermaids, and kitty art on Ebay in 2010.  She was a full time account manager for a University before becoming a full time mom and part time artist.  She currently enjoys spending time with her family traveling, exploring the outdoors, and designing beautiful, cute, and magical art for craft and coloring lovers.

Folded card

I made with cute little witch for a Halloween card for my 4 year old grandaughter. I think she will love it.  The background of the card was coloured with Pan Pastel and the image with Copic Markers. I added some gems, Nova in gold on the shoe buckle. The small spider print was a digital image from the stash was was black and white and I printed on matching mauve paper. 

It was a fun card to make.  Hope you will join us this month, just create a card and enter it here.
