Best Witches!

Hello everyone!

It’s been a few weeks since I have crafted. I’ve been busy with various projects in the garden that need to get done before winter arrives and I also lost my crafty mojo. But this morning, I suddenly realised that tomorrow is Halloween and I haven’t made a single card…. and I have SO MANY beautiful Halloween stamps and dies!! Very poor show, LucieG!

So I got myself to my craft table (which was still a mess from the last time I crafted!) and pulled out some stamps sent to me by Penny Black.

The main image is from a mini set called Sweet Witch (30-597) – I rarely use people stamps these days but when I saw this stamp, I knew I wanted to create with her – such a sweet witch and of course I adore her pumpkin owl!

For the background, I cut an oval from some masking paper and added a circle mask. I then blended various colours of Distress Oxide ink (Antique Linen, Salty Ocean, Unchartered Mariner, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot). Usually I like to have more purple in my Halloween skies but as I wanted to use purple for my Sweet Witch, I decided to stick with blues. Once I finished the blending, I removed the masks and coloured in my moon using regular distress inks and a bit of water.

I coloured the Sweet Witch with my Twinkling H2Os and the carefully fussy cut around the image. I usually cut before colouring and I was so nervous that I was going to cut through her!

After adhering her to my card base with foam tape, I added a sentiment from the Sugared mini stamp set (30-597).

Thanks for stopping by!
