Haunted Card

Hello blog friends,
I used this cute little CC Design stamp for the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #55 - Hocus Pocus.   This is such a fun challenge blog with the movie themes.  I'm going to check this out more often.  I also used the sketch from Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #88.  I find that I tend to be very "literal" when I'm following these sketches.  I am envious of the wonderful DTs that can take the sample sketch and put there own spin on it.  Maybe some day I'll have a more creative twist.

I drew some angry eyebrows on the little witch.  I really like this look for Halloween.  It reminds me of the line from Toy Story 2 - when Mrs. Potato Head says "I'm packing your angry eyes, just in case."  I love that movie.  I'd actually welcome to watch it for a change.  My son is seriously in to watching Disney Pixar's Cars.  It's a great movie - extremely well made - but no word of a lie, I could quote it line by line, in every scene.  I can't say how many times I've watched this movie, but it's a whole lot!

I added some glaze to her hat and boots, as well as the spider.  I added some Stickles to the ribbon on her hat, to match the background paper.  And I used a Gelly Roll pen to add glitter to her hair.  Cause witches have glittery hair, right?

I enjoyed both these challenges and as much as my sketch was very literal to the sample sketch, I sort of like the way it turned out.  Maybe it's the black cardstock that anchors the card?

Before I go...  Did you check out the sneak peek of the new adorable Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps?  These are so cute, you must go have a look on Kimmie's blog and follow the links to her amazing DT.

Have a good night!  Tomorrow is Friday!  (Yay!)
Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks for sharing your card and particularly for including all the details on how you made it special. I must remember to use the angry eyes line some day myself!
