Sweet Sunday Witches

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC194.

I used the sketch to create a fun Halloween card. I like Halloween but I don't really decorate for it, but for some reason I really enjoy making Halloween cards, and Pure Innocence Little Witch was calling out to get inky. I flipped the sketch to work with my image.

I started with a Sweet Tooth card base then added a layer of Fuse Green. I used the big Spider Web Die-namics to cut out the Black Licorice web for the background. Along the bottom of the card I used the Small Scallop Border Die-namics to cut out the Orange Fizz strip then I stamped the sentiment with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

For the image panel I stamped Pure Innocence Little Witch with Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending Card then coloured her with copic markers. I paper pieced her dress with a polka dot paper from Fancy Pants Oct 31 collection. I fussy cut around her and mounted her on foam tape to the Sweet Tooth rectangle, which I cut out using the Pierced Rectangle STAX Die-namics. I added a layer of Blu Raspberry underneath for a little pop of colour.

I cut a strip of Grapesicle for the horizontal element then stamped it with Border It - Mod Borders using Grapesicle Premium Dye Ink.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.
