A Haunting We Will Go By Carol Fox
I should have posted this yesterday, but I was bad and did not get it finished to photograph it in daylight. But here it is better late than never....I hope.
I love Halloween, and when I saw the new stamps by Jo Capper-Sandon, I just had to have this funky little witch, as this witch is not for Halloween it can be used all year round. I just wish I had got the witches hat so she could have worn it while taking her pet dragonfly for a midnight run.
This started life as a beer mat which I first gave a coat of black acrylic paint. Then I masked it with a Tim Holtz mask and used Inka Gold In Orange Over the top, its the first time I have used Inka through a mask and I was very pleased with how it looked.
The Dragonfly and Stella were stamped onto card, cut out, coloured and then stuck on. I do like to mask but with my background being so dark it was not really an option.
Once they were in place I stamped the quote which is from The Artistic Outpost set Haunted Halloween, coloured it with spiced Marmalade distress ink and stuck it on.
I then applied Orange peel stickles to the background with my finger.
I have punched holes in the top corners to add ribbon to hang it by, but I didn't realise I was out of black ribbon utill I went to use it and only 6 inches of it rolled from the reel.
I have a little great niece who's birthday it is on the 30th October, I shall send her this for her birthday card, as my actual cards leave a lot to be desired.
