E is for Elixir

Hello.  Welcome.  Bwahahahahahaha.  So, 26 letters in the alphabet.  52 cards in a deck of cards.  Advanced maths...... 52 / 26 = 2  So I need 2 playing cards for each letter.  Well, I knew that, and I started quite well, but then it went down to just 1 for each letter and now there's only 6 letters left and I really need to make up some ground.  If you aren't really with me I'm talking about the Craft Barn Alpha/Dictionary challenge.  So here is my second E.  

Ain't that the cutest little werewolf you ever did see??  And he got a big bottle of werewolf elixir.  Had great fun making this.  I made a brusho background and covered my giant playing card.  I cut my bottle from blue card and covered it with clear embossing powder.  I made the label by following the MFP faux leather tutorial.  Not sure it looks very leathery!  First attempt.  Will try again.  Before embossing with the embossing folder I stamped with stamps from Inspired by Stamping Halloween Labels and Halloween Tags.  I combined two sentiment stamps from the two sets to get the sentiment and then used the small stamps to add the spiders, webs and bats.  The werewolf is paper pieced from Cheery Lynn Monster Kids Set 1.  I used Inspired by Stamping Pumpkin Faces stamps for the werewolf's eyes and also for the shrink plastic pumpkin tied around the bottle neck.  Definition courtesy of OED.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
