My Little Witch


My DD who is 3 years old and I went to a party supply store that is going out of business and found her a costume for Halloween this year. She was planning on being a Mermaid, but the only costume left in the store in her size was a Witch. Aly loved that the costume is not just black, but is also has a pink shiny design on it. Perfect! Plus it was only $5 can't beat that!!
So my card for today is a little Witch that was giving me some major trouble. This witch is a sticky tape die cut from Creative Cuts and More and the sentiment is from Penguin Pants. My original plan was to place this Witch on the moon and then cover her in glitter, well... I think it would have worked out better if I had used black glitter instead of the only color I had on had...brown. The brown glitter is gorgeous, but wasn't very fitting for the Witch. Well I am frugal and didn't want to waste her, so I thought "OH just cover her in black craft ink". Yeah that worked but uber messy. The color even why dry kept rubbing off....again "OH seal it with Crystal Effects". Again uber messy, but once it dried I was able to pick her up and put her on this card front. SOO... what have I learned... get another Witch and BUY BLACK GLITTER!

In case you noticed my lack of a "Just So Sporty" creation for Melanie's Spotlight, that is because Gina K is having there big release party, so had to save my "JSS" creation for my Friday Card Flick. "Watch me pull chocolate truffles out of my hat!".
See you tomorrow
