When Witches Party

     Everybody loves a good Halloween party but have you ever thought about whether witches party on Halloween?  What kind of costumes do they wear?  Do they put on human people masks?   Well, here's a sneak peek into at least 1 witch celebrating.


I started with the color combo at Outlawz Color.


     The witch image is by Rick St. Dennis and I colored her with my ProMarkers, then fussy cut her with some very sharp scissors to get really clean cutting lines.  The haunted house is die cut with an Unbranded die (new to me as of yesterday.)

     The house is adhered flat onto the card front and the witch is mounted on Pop Dots for some dimension.  Two of the bats in the sky have texture because I cut the house three times, took bats from those cuts and added them as layers to two of the bats here.  It doesn't show up in the photo, but IRL it's both visible and "feel"-able.

     Challenges:
Cuttlebug Mania
Die Cuttin' Divas
Ike's World ( Celebrate your 100th! Hooray!!)
Lemon Shortbread
Passion for ProMarkers
{PIN}spirational
Sparkle n Glitter
TTCRD
Tuesday Throwdown

     It's almost the weekend and I'm so ready!  I've been retired long enough that the idea of getting up every morning and heading off for an 8 hour day, day after day and week after week, is totally foreign and leaves me feeling exhausted.  I'll be so glad when everything is back to my normal routine which often includes an afternoon nap. lol

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Your witch is enjoying herself utterly and completely! I love her dancing feet and the cute cupcake. It is your color choices that really have me smitten! Your fussy cutting is impeccable, especially the white halo around her so that the colors show off against the background. LOVE LOVE LOVE your spooky, bat-filled haunted house in the background. hugs, de
