Halloween Wrap Up

     I think this will be my last Halloween card but I'm not promising.  I keep finding other adorable images which somehow make their way into my collection and they just cry out to be used.  This darling little bear mummy from Di's Digi Designs is one of those.  :-D

     I used ProMarkers to color the image and water color paints for the evening sky, moon glow, and ground.  Both the kraft card base and the image piece were die cut (QuicKutz) to give them lacy edges.  Despite the visual effect of that, this is still a very CAS design - 1 image put on top of a card base.  No ribbon, no flowers, no buttons, no twine, no embellishments except the witch which actually becomes part of the overall image.

     The full moon with the witch is one of those die cut, foam, circles (QuicKutz) which I stamped with the flying witch.  I made half a dozen or more of them at the beginning of the fall season and I think I've used 2 or 3 of them.  If I don't use the rest, I'll hang onto them for next year.

     I printed the sentiment, hand cut it, and matted it with a tiny scrap of dp before adding it to the card.
