Not quite sure how it happened, but look, it's October! That means it's time for a new Naughty or Nice challenge:
That's right, the Naughty or Nice troublemakers are Feeling Witchy. This is a perfect time to create something for Halloween, or if that's not your thing, perhaps a *naughty* card for a friend. We all feel a little witchy some days, don't we? ;)
I chose to go the Halloween route.
This is one of those cards that I added various elements to until I liked it. I started with the witch and the sentiment. She is coloured with distress markers and inks, and I used some of the purple to sponge the edges of the sentiment, as well. Next up, I picked the patterned paper background. Then I added the die cut tree. For a little more interest, the cat and bats came next — I knew I wanted a black cat, so I covered the wood veneer in Versamark followed by two coats of black embossing powder. As I played with the layout, the tree and bats (cut from black cardstock) were more or less disappearing against the black and grey paper. I spritzed the bats with some white perfect pearls mist... and disaster! After my test spray was perfectly misty, it splotched when I sprayed the bats! I grabbed a paintbrush and spread the splotches around to get shimmery grey bats. The tree is sprayed with two grey mists for a little contrast as well. Here's a close-up:
For more witchy inspiration, be sure to check out the Naughty or Nice challenge page... there may even be a little surprise waiting over there! Don't worry, we're into treats not tricks, most of the time. ;) You have until the 25th of the month to join us!
