Witches Brew

Hi there do you fancy a Witches Brew?  Our challenge this week at Michelle Perkett Studio is a spooky challenge - we want to see your halloweeny creations with your yummy halloween backing papers too. I've used Candy, The Sweet Halloween Witch' (available from Michelle's Etsy Store) for this spooky card (although Candy is too cute to be spooky lol)


Sorry the pic is a bit dark, its hard to see the gorgeous bps (Booville from Raspberry Road Designs) . I've followed the sketch from Truly Scrumptious, punched a border on the Halloween text paper with an EK success punch and distressed all the papers with lots of  black ink. On the folded back corner I stamped a spooky spider in his web with an Elusive Images stamp. Candy is coloured with promarkers.

I haven't got any halloweeny embellishments so I decided to make my own lol. The broomstick is made with a cocktail stick inked with black ink and some purple and orange embroidery thread tied on with a bow. I crushed a bottletop in my cuttlebug, added black glitter to the outside and cut a circle from the text paper and stuck it onto some black braid. I'm entering this card with my home made embellies in the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge which is 'Anything Goes'

I'm entering Candy in the following challenges:
Crafts and Me: Halloween
Glitterbabe's Challenge: Halloween (and of course glitter/sparkle)
Polkadoodles: Something spooky
Stamp something: Halloween somethings
Creative Inspirations: Halloween/Fall
Pollycraft: Purple, Green +1 (I chose orange)
Magical Monday: Halloween

I hope you're going to share a Witches Brew with us this week :-)

  1. Phew! Just been having a catch up. How do you manage to make all those lovely cards and go out to work too. I think you must have worked out how to be in two places at once. Loving everything I've seen and hope to get back soon for some more inspiration.
