Wicked Halloween!

Hello, everyone!!  Laurie here to share a Halloween card with you.  First off, let me admit that I am not a fan of Halloween. I know, right??!!  Deep down I want to like it but....
However, I did have a blast making this card.  I used an actual Halloween stamp set and a not even remotely close to a Halloween set.

This is where my thought process started. I started by going through scraps of cardstock to find halloween colors (that cardstock is actually purple).  I used the First Step Stamp Set and Co-ordinating Dies from Waffle Flower.  

I then stamped the shoe images again on white cardstock and drew "stockings". I coloured the stripes with my alcohol markers.  Can you see where I'm going with this?? :)  

To create a custom sentiment for my card, I used the Peek A Boo Stamp Set from The Greeting Farm.  I only used the "Have A" and "Halloween" portions of the "Have a Magical Halloween" sentiment.  For the custom part of the sentiment I used the Sophisticated Script Stamp Set from Concord and 9th.

I created a black frame using Wonky Stitched Rectangles from My Favourite Things and put my card together.  I added Matte Black Enamel Dots and stamped some stars in purple ink.  As you can see, I did make some color changes to the bows, using green and orange cardstock and the paper piecing technique.  And witch shoes aren't complete without a little sparkle, right??  I added a TON of Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen and Glossy Accents to finish them off.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!! Have a "wicked" week!!!!
