Wow! What a Sentiment!
I received my new Halloween stamp set from CTMH a few weeks ago and was itching to try it! The Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge seemed the perfect place. Might seem a stretch from the demure young lady doing her cross-stitch / sewing project, but............
The papers are from the CTMH Scaredy Cat collection. They are so hauntingly cute! hee hee
My witch is from Cricut Wrap It Up and the bats are from CTMH Artbooking Cartridge.
The sentiment is from the new CTMH Halloween stamp set called Halloween Greetings.
The Pear green CS was embossed using the a bubble folder. Reminded me of Shakespeare, "Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and caldron bubble." You know, MacBeth.....the scene with the three witches? Ok, I didn't remember where that quote was from; I looked it up and then sort of remembered from a literature class a long time ago! ; )
Anyway, back to the card....
I had a piece of tulle on the desk, so I rubbed it in black ink and let it dry. Then I tucked in in around the rectangle under the witch. It sort of gives her a veiled effect.
The bats are heat embossed. I mixed silver and black embossing powders with a tiny bit of sparkle glitter. I'd not done that before, but thought it might give it a fun look!
Lots of fun inspiration at AHSC; check it out!
