The Witch is In -- um, ah, Out Riding

     It's Friday so it's my day for QKR Stampede (woohoo!) and the latest challenge.  Our theme is "The Witch is In."   We want to see witches, in or out.  My QKR Stampede digi is called "Out Riding" so she isn't really 'in', I suppose.  :-D  She's out having fun, the way witches will do.


I used the sketch from Outlawz,  turned 1/4 turn
and colors from Creative Colors.

  

     I colored the image with my beloved ProMarkers and die cut it with a die from Spellbinders .  I 'sponged' the sky with chalk while the image was still in the die.  I wrapped orange polka dot ribbon (Really Reasonable Ribbon) around a scrap of black CS then mounted the image on top.  The silly sentiment is mine, though I may have seen it somewhere last year and revived it.  Apologies if I'm claiming it and it actually was yours.  It's also die cut.

     All of that went onto a brown card base (which has a greenish tinge in the photograph - who knows why!)   The pumpkins and the gems have all been locked away in my stash (translate hoarded) as though using them might diminish them in some way.  "Why buy things and then hoard them?", I keep asking myself.  Sheesh!

     Challenges:

     For some of us, today starts the weekend and for others it starts later tonight or tomorrow, depending on how you figure it.  However, I hope your plans include some time just for you.  Maybe you'll want to be creative and do something for our challenge.  You're not required to use a QKR Stampede image but if you do, you have an excellent chance of winning more QKR digis because we do a drawing just for those who use them.  If you use other digis, that's fine, too, and you still have a chance to win.  Come play with us this week.  The witch is in!  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
