Humble Pie - Maggie Witch

This is the last of my Halloween cards as tomorrow is Halloweeen and there's a buzz in my house as my girls and hubby are counting down to when they can put on their costumes.

Witch Maggie image can be purchased from Phebe at the Town Scrapper. Card is a 6x6 and the base is black cardstock layered with Imaginisce ~ Hallowhimsy - Velcome Inn ~ DP from last year. I cut the green cardstock accent per the sketch, stamped the Stampabilities sentiment and then put it through my spiderweb CB folder ~ love my CB. I used one of the Petite Oval Nestabilities from the large set and cut out the image using the uber talented Rach's Out of Frame Nestie Technique. If you're interested, Rach's awesome tutorial is here. Be sure to check her blog out by clicking on her name above ~ she is one super talented lady and her colouring OMGosh Wooooow!

Image was stamped with aTuxedo Black Memento on Beckett Expression CS with Copics (E000, E01, E21, R20, C00, C13, C5, C7, C9, E35, G14, G20, G21, G82, G85, V01, V04, V05 & Blender). I masked Maggie and sponged SU So Saffron ink around her so it looks like she's sitting in the sky with the moon behind her - ok I know the moon is round but it's Halloween so it can be wonky ~ lol. I also sponged just the edge of the oval moon with Tuxedo Black Memento ink so it stands out a bit more. I then pop dotted the image for dimension and voila. I was going to add some floral embellishments but decided to keep it simple and added the light purple ribbon instead. Picture is not great as it was taken at night so the ribbon doesn't look purple and Maggie hair is not as green as IRL.

Happy Friday ~ Hugs,
Maria
