Spooky Witch

While wandering around the internet, I came across a card made with one of the newest Halloween stamp sets offered from Stampin’ Up!.  I love how the originator used a piece of ribbon to create the illusion of a skirt (sorry, I don’t remember who I cased this from – really need to remember to write these things down!).  I hoped my club members would have fun with this during their last meeting.  I was not disappointed, it was definitely a HIT!

This is my take on the original idea.  I added some shimmer to the background, lots of bats, sponging and even a spooky moon peeking out from behind the “witch”.SPOOKY CARD

Here is a closer look at the shimmering background.

I’ve taken several photos of the card and can’t quite seem to be able to pick up just how beautiful the sparkly background truly is.  A few drops of shimmer paint mixed with some rubbing alcohol and sprayed over a background is a great finishing touch.
