Eye Of Newt Runs In The Family

Hello.  Welcome.  Decided to have another play with Taylored Expressions Birthday sketch.  Did a little halloween birthday combo and made a Happy Booday card for a friend who has a birthday next month.  Bwahahahahaa

I flipped the sketch this time and I've altered the proportions a bit as well.  Isn't that the cutest little witch?!!

I started by making this panel using an orange base.  I cut Taylored Expressions Spider Web Cutting Plate and 13 Dead End Drive from black card.  I paper pieced the 13 Dead End Drive die and glued it all together.  Love 13 Dead End Drive and what a bootastic name!!  Just saying......  Then I attached the panel to a black base card. 

I stamped Taylored Expressions Moka Tabitha with archival ink and did a bit of fussy cutting of her hat, feet and broom before die cutting using a Sizzix circle die.   I coloured her with distress inks and ink joy pens.  Then I edged the circle with wilted violet distress ink and covered the white space with glitter glue.  I added some of the pieces cut out of the spider web to each side of the circle and added some bats cut using a sizzix die.  I used part of the sentiment that comes with Tabitha, stamping and embossing with white powder.  After searching for dies to make my Booday word I decided to write it myself using a white gel pen.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
