Which Witch Has the Spider?

     When I saw this witch over at Beccy's Place, I knew I had to get her colored up and ready for Halloween.   I love fun Halloween cards and even though I really hate spiders, this one was almost cute.



I used the sketch from A Die for a Sketch.


     The image is colored with ProMarkers and I added a bit of glitter gel ink to the spider's web and to her wand.   I used a hexagon die to cut both the image and the mat.  The paper has been in my fall stash for waaay too many years and is by DCWV but was probably discontinued long ago.  I thought it made a great background for this fun witch.

     The purple ribbon is the last bit I had from some which was recycled from a potted plant and the bow is one of those I make myself.  I added the Dew Drops (purple) and Rain Drops (orange) for embellishment and knew it was finished without anything more.  This is truly one of those "less is more" cards.

     OK, back to the "packing" mines for me, my friends.  As the moving gets closer, I feel the pressure of running out of time.  I may be somewhat scarce in my posting for the next couple of weeks, limiting my play to DT work only.  Isn't it terrible when life gets in the way of fun?  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

How beautiful the colors and design elements are in your card, Connie! Love Beccy's image, and all the other glittery witches in the background. I don't like spiders, either - something about them - but this one is great! Love the spider web hugs, de

Super witch image and you made a great card with it. I love that sparkly spider web. I don't like spiders either...I think it is the creepy, crawly legs that spook me.
