I'm here today to share another Halloween card with you from the new reveal set 799: Call me Witch.
Isn't this little Granny a hoot? I began with stamping her on white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black and she was colored with Copics.
After she was colored, I sparkled up her buckles on her shoes and hat with a Sakura Glue pen and Reflection Velvet Glitter. She got Dimensional Glue applied to the her glasses and I used the Nuvo Medium Tip Pen to add Blissfull Blue Sparkle N Soft to her hair. Orange Crush was also applied to her blouse. She was cut out with the Spellbinders Mega Ovals Large, but before I removed the die I sponged some Dandelion Memento ink around her. Then some Indian Gold and Lilac Lavender Embellishment Mousse was rubbed on to the edges of the piece with a dauber. OK, now she needs a background.
I took a piece of 5 1/4" by 4" piece of Super Adhesive tape and stuck it down to a piece of white cardstock, then removed the protective backing and started to line up various strips of Tear-ific Tape diagonally on top. When the whole piece was covered with the strips, I straightened the edges then lined up the Velvet Glitters. Purple Rain, Tiger Orange, Celebration, Daisy, Hyacinth, Margarita and Golden Wheat were burnished in one at a time as each strips' backing was removed.
This piece was layered on to black cardstock. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Concord, one of my favorite detailed Tuscany colors. It was cut out with a QuickKutz Speech bubble die and was sponged with Cantaloupe ink.
I made my broom from a skewer and some raffia. Coloring the handle with brown Copic Marker and then taking several pieces of raffia and bending them over to make the head of the broom. Some more raffia was wrapped around the base of the head, attaching it to the skewer. I punched a hole in the witch image and used invisible thread to attach the broom head to the image. I made a "long glue dot" by taking a piece of 1/8" Tear-ific tape and attached it to the bottom of the broom to keep it in place on the card. The witch and the sentiment were attached to the card with Foam Squares and then the Nuvo Crystal Drops: Crushed Grape, Wisteria Purple and Purple Rain Glitter Drops were randomly applied to spots on the card front to finish it off.
Hope you liked my project today?
