Witching You ...

Hi Friends,
I love Halloween.  I used to look forward to dressing up in my costume and trick or treating as a kid.  I love all the fun decorations that come with Halloween too, however I will pass on the scary stuff and just stick to the cute stuff.  And today's card is no exception.  I have a whole page of  Halloween cards sketched out so I am going to try to make & feature as many as I can this week before the season is over.

Today's card is another one of those that sprung out of me trying to think about my stamps creatively.  I came up with this Halloween card using many different Lawn Fawn sets, none of which are "Halloweeen" themed.  I have actually had this idea sketched out for awhile, it is where I first thought about using the card in Cozy Christmas as a book!  The idea here was to make a Witchy card without an actual Witch (just her personal items).

Since all my pieces of this card are various colors I wanted my background to be more muted.  I also experimented with color mists for the first time.  The back panel is inked in Pumice Stone and then sprayed with Mister Huey's Custard spray.  I also sprinkled some water & Perfect Pearls Mist for texture. I am really loving the effect of sprinkling my distress inked panels with Perfect Pearls Mist, so be warned you will be seeing more of this. It is a little hard to photograph but I tried to get the light to catch the shine of those silvery spots.

I used 6 sets on this card.  I was also going to throw in a cat too, but didn't have room.  Maybe that would be a nice addition to the inside.  I am entering this card into this week's Wee Memories challenge "Free for All." since I didn't get it made in time for their Holiday challenge. Thanks for stopping by today, I have some more fun stuff lined up for this week so see you again soon!

P.S. You can still play along for some blog candy goodies on my 100th post giveaway HERE

Fabulous idea!! I love all the colors you used, great card!! The sentiment is funny and it fits perfectly the whole idea:)
I'm playing with Mr Huey's too, and it seems we bought the same color, I love Custard, I just finished experimenting with it for a Fall card I'm working on :)
