Witch and Stuff

The Kraft Journal challenge this week is Spooky Stuff. The challenge at Created by Hand is Witches/Circles. To create this card, I started with a black card base. All of the layers are die cuts or cut image. The moon was cut out of yellow cardstock using a Spellbinders circle die. I then painted it with rock candy crackle paint. The houses are done using the townscape on-the-edge-die from Tim Holtz. I added light kraft paper behind the houses for the windows. The tree was die cut twice using branch tree--once in brown and once in kraft layered so the brown shadowed the kraft. The witch (Oxford Impressions) was stamped on olive cardstock with archival jet black ink. The hat and cape were paperpieced TJ newsletter, Feb 2003). Halloween is a fun cardmaking time of year.

So many different uses of die cuts! I love the houses across the bottom of the card. And the moon in the background really gives your card a spooky feeling. Great job! Thanks for sharing your creation with us this week at The Kraft Journal!
