Boo-tiful Witchy Woman

Have you seen the current Rebel challenge at Rogue Redhead Designs?  Do some stamping and use some autumn colors.  I've posted my card on the Rogue Redhead Designs blog.

My autumn colors include:
Background paper sprayed with Dylusions ink sprays (Squeezed Orange and Fresh Lime) and a shimmer mist--Perfect Pearls Sunflower Sparkle, then stamped with my boo-tiful witchy woman image from the RRD half plate, Nature Notes. I had to square up the actual image and then edged with a black sharpie to redefine the frame.
Blackbird paper from Memorybox which is the base on top of a black card as well as the larger mat.  Smaller mat is a scrap.

Spellbinders Nestabilities Lacy Squares used to make two paper mats.

Wood witch hat from Red Lead Paperworks is painted with black chalkboard paint (when I had the paint out for some other projects).  I did not chalk up the hat as I think this sophisticated witchy woman would keep her hat in pristine condition, tied up in a bow with Doodle Twine (Halloween assortment).

This is my RRD design team sample for the Rebel challenge.  Be sure to enter HERE  by October 6 to be in the running for a $15.00 voucher to the RRD stamp store.

I so love the text in the background here - especially along the top, so deliciously shabby. And the addition of the witch's hat is such fun!

Great work! Beautiful background with the tree branches and faded text ~ perfect for Autumn. And such a sweet witchy woman!

It is always fun when a stamp is used for a theme you would not readily associate it with.
She does look to be too kind to be a witch unless that is a glimmer of mischief I detect in her eyes!
