Hocus Pocus

Hi - this is my first design team card for Die Cut Dreams where this week we have a spooky challenge for you. There's a colour combo of black, green, purple and orange, a sketch by Vikki and a Halloween theme. Not as complicated as it might sound so give it a try. There are two fab prizes up for grabs including stamps, stickers, buttons, gems and stamped images too.



This picture is a bit rubbish - I hate taking photos at this time of year. I think I will have to resort to taking them in the bathroom - all the white helps! I'm entering this for this weeks challenge at ABC who have the theme -'embossing' and also Dare you to Digi Stamp as they ask us to use punches or die cuts.

OK then, my 'lil witch is a digi download from the Digi Stamp Boutique and her name is Izzi (I'm guessing derived from Izzy whizzy lets get busy magic saying but 'm probably sooooo wrong!). She's shaded with ProMarkers and sits on another mat using those fab die cuts I got at the weekend.

The squiggly sparkly trim and the bat brads are by Doodlebug, as is the rub on sentiment. I spent ages embossing the cobweb background with a Fiskars texture plate and the hand embossing tool. I really must get a new embossing mat!

Pop over and see what the rest of the design team made - they're spooktacular!
