Happy Witching!!!

Well it's nearly the time of the year I love making cards/creations and that is Halloween.  Here in the UK it isn't celebrated that much compared to countries like America.  I'd love to be in America at Halloween time and look at houses that have been decorated.

For my card I have used an image by the ever so talented Ching-Chou Kuik.  The image is called "Divine" and is available at Sweet Pea Stamps as a digi stamp and a rubber stamp.  Ching-Chou Kuik is also selling some of her wonderful images/artwork on her Etsy Store.  make sure you pop on over and have a look.  They are stunning and I want them all!!!

I have coloured my image in with my Graph'it pens, fussy cut around the image and then used my black Pan Pastel to edge around the moon and the witch herself.
The backing papers I have used are from Bearly Mine Designs.  The main backing paper with the skeleton is from the newly released set called "Halloween Fantasy" and the black/white border strip is from the "Black and White Essentials" set.

I have made some flowers for the card from an old book, die-cut the layers, coloured some with Tim Holtz's Black Soot distress ink and some with Tim Holtz's Spun Sugar distress ink, edged the black layers with some black glitter, scrunched up all the layers and held together with a brad.

I have finished the card off with a Martha Stewart web border, Martha Stewart bats corner die (just using the waste of the large bats) and sentiment off the computer.
