When Witches Go Riding...

     Another Friday, another challenge at QKR Stampede.  We always have an "Anything Goes" theme but we also give you an optional twist if you want to use it and this week is pretty easy - "Halloween" - and it's right around the corner.  Next Tuesday, in fact.

     I used the twist this week and made this spooky Halloween card using the "Witch - 19605 " image  and "Boo - 12902" sentiment, both from QKR.

I based this on the sketch at The Outlawz
but took some liberties once I got started, 
especially running my diagonal differently.

     I used my ProMarkers to color the witch and then tore the paper on which she had been printed.  I curled the left hand side of it.  I added some sparkle to her skirt with a bit of loose glitter.  Then, I die cut the cat (Unbranded Die) from sparkly, glittered CS and added it to the broom.  He's mounted on dimensional tape but that doesn't show up very well in the photo.  Instead, he looks more like part of the image but he's a totally separate piece.

     I dug through my paper scraps and found the papers I used on the background, then added the polka dot ribbon, the orange bow, and the little groupings of gemstones.  Finally, I printed the sentiment, tore the edges around it and added it to the lower corner.

     Yay, it's Friday and the weekend begins!  OK, I have another several hours before it's actually the weekend for me but my mind is already basking in the idea of sleeping in half the day tomorrow if I choose!   Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
