Happy Halloween - Witch's Shoe with Bugaboo Stamps


Happy Halloween everyone!!  I have to admit that I miss this holiday a lot - mostly the decorations, trick or treating with my nieces, and candy corn!!  I always bought a bag of candy corn because just seeing it made me want it so badly but, after eating the bag, I was done for the year.  LOL

In honor of Halloween I have a quick card I made using the Witch Shoe by Bugaboo Stamps.  I sized the image to about 4.25" x 4.25" and printed it on white cardstock.  Then, using Grand Squares (LF-126) by Spellbinders, I cut and embossed the image using the die that measures 4 9/16" x 4 9/16".  Then I used the next larger die and cut and embossed a piece of black cardstock.  

I colored in the image using two Copic markers - Fluorescent Dull Y/G Copic (FYG2) and Chrome Orange (YR04), and 3 Bic Markers - Fandango Pink, Sunset Orange, and Stone Grey.  I then went and applied some Orange Peel, Glam Pink, and Firefly Stickles to certain areas of the shoe and set it aside to dry.  

While it was drying I made my card base - 6" x 12" with white cardstock.  I then adhered a piece of decorative Halloween paper to the card front.  Then I adhered the black cardstock to the decorative paper.  Once the image was dry, I stamped the Happy Halloween phrase (Michael's) under the shoe, adhered it to a piece of black fun foam, and then adhered this to the black cardstock.  

Done!!  Of course, since today is Halloween, I will have to hold this until next year to send out to someone.  Sigh....

Enjoy your Halloween everyone.  Stay safe and watch the kids if you are taking any Trick or Treating!!  Until next time - 

Hugs from Brasil -
