I Put A Spell On You!

 It's mid month and time for a little Halloween inspiration with a 'spooky' image from Jan's Digital Stamp Shop.  For today's card I'm using Hocus Pocus.  Here's my finished card, then a few details about making it.

I started this project by making several Distressed Oxide backgrounds.   I find it's easier to get the Oxides and stencils out and make a variety at one time, clean up the mess and have a nice supply rather than doing one at a time.  This witch hat stencil is by Carta Bella and with it being the 6" square size it was perfect for making this size card.  I used two shades of purple, two shades of yellow/orange oxides, and I also used the make up brushes to apply the oxides. 

For the image part of the card, I pulled in the set of two jars into a blank document and then added the single jar.  I sized them to be about 3" tall.  On a separate area in my document I pulled in the sentiment I wanted to use and sized it about 1" tall and a little over 4" long.  I printed these on Neenah 110 # card stock and colored the bottles with my Copic markers.

I used a pale dusty rose 12 x 12 paper cut in half to make my 6 x 6" card base.  I cut the Witch Hat stenciled piece to fit just inside the card base and secured it down.  I used the Gina Marie Designs Nested Labels #1 to die cut the colored image and secured it to the card then die cut the sentiment with a stitched fish tail die and secured it to the card.  To complete the card, I added one lavender bling dot on the tag and three gold randomly around the colored image.
