Halloween Tilda

I hope everybody had a nice weekend. It has been coooold here in Northern Nevada. We even turned on the heat for awhile and on Friday we still had the air conditioner going. It is unusual to have such cold weather in August but then we are used to sudden changes in the weather.

Since it feels like fall, I thought I would make a Halloween card. I don't do many Halloween cards but I have a few stamped images that I received from overseas. I like this cute image of Tilda dressed as a witch, so I colored her with Copics. The DP is from a K & Co. Halloween Pack I bought last year.  I sponged around the image with T.H. distress ink, Dusty Concord and also edged the papers with Black Soot and cut two flourishes with a die from Bosskut. The witch on her broom is a MS punch.
 On the inside I again used the same DP. For the label I used a paper from PTI and cut a border using the Fleur de Lis punch from Fiskars.

 As I was about done I saw that I smeared Spiced Marmelade distress ink on the back of the card. I took my YR15 and added a few more lines and clued the MS witch stirring her cauldron over it. One way to cover up my mistake.... (smile).

That is all for today.... Too bad the weekend is over because I have another card almost done. But since I have to go to work tomorrow, I don't think I will get it done during the week.

Thank you to all of you that leave such sweet comments. I very much appreciate it.
