Boo to you, little witch!

*Thrilled to be among the top picks at ColourQ Challenges.*

I decided to take out the retired Greeting Card Kids stamp set to use that adorable little witch sitting on her pumpkin for my card today.  That stamp set just begs to be coloured with the new Blendabilities and that was my plan.  It's nice when my plan and a couple of challenges go hand in hand, too.

The AAA Cards is having an "inspired" challenge and this is the image from which to take inspiration:


That's right---it's a Hallowe'en challenge and all styles of cards are welcome.  The other challenge which is just perfect for my card is the colourQ challenge:


I love it when challenges work together.

My card is a single layer card for which I've used Whisper White because it stamps so clearly and cleanly.  I stamped the little witch just about dead centre.  Then I added my sentiment from the hostess Good Greetings stamp set just below her.  Finally I took my Project Life Journalling pen and, using my third to largest oval framelit, traced a black oval around both, adding a few leaves as I went along..

I used my Pumpkin Pie and Wisteria Wonder Blendabilities sets for the pumpkin and the little witch's dress, hat and socks.  Then I used my skin colour Blendabilities set for her face, arms and knees.  For the leaves and strip of grass and the little witch's cloak, I used the retired Certainly Celery Stampin' Marker.

  1. Love the simplicity of your Halloween inspired card - one layer cards are always so much harder to make. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards.

    1. Thank you, Jane. I had worked on a very fance card earlier in the day and getting back to basics and simplicity was refreshing.

    1. Thank you so much, Claire. I had just finished tracing the oval when I realized it needed a little something extra, hence the leafy additions.
