It's the Witching Hour

Well, another week has gone by and I'm back to share a couple Halloween note cards I created with the very cool Lost Coast Designs Silhouette Witch stamp. What an awesome stamp this is! This is another fairly simple and non-dimensional design for Linda's booth. The supply list is minimal - in addition to the stamp, I used a stencil, some inks, cardstock and ribbon. And the technique is fun and easy!

I created the background by spritzing a light layer of Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls mist and water onto my craft mat and swirling a piece of watercolor cardstock in the puddle. After giving that a few minutes to dry, I spritzed some Sunset Orange Adirondack color wash over a clock stencil. While that was drying, I cut a background piece from purple cardstock and matted it on orange cardstock, leaving a very thin border. I printed the 'witching hour' sentiment on vellum, trimmed it and attached it to a length of orange/yellow striped ribbon with a mini stapler. I went back to the stenciled background and stamped the witch silhouette in Eggplant ink and ticket-punched the corners. I affixed the ribbon diagonally in the upper right corner, then attached the entire piece to the card base. That's all there was to it!
