The Witching Hour


I love Halloween and really wanted to enter some of the Halloween challenges, but for some reason my attempts at Halloween cards haven't been successful. However, I came up with this one late last night and think it works this time!

I used Creative Expressions set of village scene stamps and an Elite Halloween set for the witch. I stamped the image and then coloured it using black and grey Promarkers. I coloured the moon, sky and pumpkins with mica paints to give a shimmer. Finally I decoupaged the lamp and more pumpkins.

Have a happy Halloween!

Challenges I am entering:
Bloggers Challenge - Happy Hauntings
Fashionista Fridays - Spooky Fall
Opus Gluei - Halloween
Rainbow Lady - Spooks and Witches
Shabby Tea Rooms - Halloween
Shopping Our Stash - Halloween or Fall Colours
Stamping Boutique - Spooky or Scary
Happy Daze - Halloween or Christmas

Oooh, this card definitely works - just the right amount of spooky without being too scary. Although, I suppose if I saw a witch flying overhead I might not feel quite that at ease about it. LOL

Great composition and really fun card! Thanks for sharing this with us at Opus Gluei, hope you return for more of our themes!
