Frightfully Cute Card! ;)

This stamp set is waaaay toooo cute!  It is from CTMH and called Halloween Greetings!  When I saw that adorable little witch I couldn't help but think about Tabitha from Bewitched and all the mischief she created around her!  That's what makes this a great choice for the Pile it On Challenge where they want to see children/ Halloween/games.

I also enjoyed playing with some different mediums on this card, so I'm sending it off to Mixed Media Mojo where the theme is Fall and use paste.  My texture paste is up in the left hand corner.  I cut my own stencil with my cricut and some acetone alternative.  I colored the homemade pasted with CTMH Honey and Cranberry re-inker to get the orange color.  Before the paste was dry I sprinkled a little glitter onto it and quickly hit it with a heat too.

Before adding the texture paste, I cut the card from the CTMH Artiste cartridge.  The paper is CTMH Scaredy Cat.  I painted the front with some pearl paint mixed with a little gesso and lightly rubbed a little Sunset ink over it.  The pattern still clearly comes through, but it gives it a little different look than the inside of the card.

The web and bats were cut from Artbooking.  I heat embossed them with powder. I also heat embossed the little witch and colored with CTMH markers.  The sentiment is cut from Artbooking.

Further embellishments include Epoxy bubbles, Baker's Twine, Sunset Ribbon, tulle colored with ink.     All CTMH is from KatiesCorner!

I'm also sending my little witch off to these fun challenges!
