Witch's Legs Halloween Card

October is just around the corner, which means Halloween will be here soon. I can't wait to decorate with some of my new Halloween goodies I've found. I'll post pictures when I get it all done. In the meantime, I've begun to make some Halloween cards. This card uses Karen Lockhart's Witch's Legs stamp. The striped legs and the funky, pointy shoes just crack me up! I colored the stamped image in with Copic markers, the very fine tips of the Sketch Markers come in very hand with a detailed stamp like this one. I added sequins to the shoes and layered my image onto a scallop cut Spellbinders square die. My background papers are from Making Memories, some of my favorites for Halloween projects. Both ribbons were Archiver's finds. Check out this angle to see the glittery patterned paper from Making Memories. I also ran my black scallop die through my Fiskars Crimper to add texture.
I embellished the inside of my card too. I stamped the Lockhart *witchie, witchie* sentiment on a Making Memories label, added a little snippet of leftover patterned paper and adhered it over another strip of leftover patterned paper. FUN stuff ladies!
Today my friend Carmen is coming over to make Halloween goodies for teachers and friends. We like to get together for each holiday and mass produce. We're just going to combine all of our Halloween papers, ribbons and packaging and see what we come up with. I'll be sure to take photos....especially since Carmen has the most beautiful fingernails and jewelry. She'll make a good hand model for me!

Great card. I guess I need to dust off my crimper and get busy. I do think it is perfect for fall and winter cards. Thanks for reminding me and as always, thanks for sharing.

Not that this is totally relevent...but I just used the same black glittery paper on the bottom of my halloween cards for my card club this month. It's so classy and elegent (some actually thought I made it all those circles)! :)

I may have to hoard some of that paper away - I love the sparkle!
