Bewitching Tilda

I'm entering this card into the paperplay for the " A Haunting we will go challenge.


This is my one and only Halloween card that I made for this year which will be hand delivered tomorrow.  I don't usually get too thrilled making cards for this occasion - the desire to dress up and party has disappeared:(



A friend of mine makes booootiful Halloween cards -- but then again, she has all the stamps to fit the occasion ..
My new little Witch Tilda, which can be purchased from Magnolia-licious, came to the rescue.  Diana seems to be sold out of this particular witch, but there are soooooooo many others to chose from and if you ask her nicely, she'll order it for you.



Tilda's been coloured with copics and dusted with perfect pearls to make her "green".  I made this into an easel card, and popped the Martha Stewart punched fence on to stick out from the rest of the card. then added glue and perfect pearls to look like skeletons hanging from the fence posts and glossy accents to the pumpkins to make them glow.
The background paper started out as yellow then I stamped it and started adding orange, purple and black.  The haunted house is a Stampin' Up set, which I have used again and again.
Hope you like it.

Remember, stamp up a storm, ink up a wish - and send it on to brighten someone's day.    

Rubber hugs, inky wishes, Cricut chirps and Cuttlebug squishes,
Madge
