Simon Says ,,,,,, Joy's Eeerie Inspiration :-)

Hi all, thank you for joining us for the Dies and Punches Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,


Our lovely teamie ,Joy, created this fabulous Pinterest board for us to use :-)

As always Heidi will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

I used this fabulous Witch from a new Penny Black Best Witches set. Isn’t she gorgeous !  I know witches are supposedly ugly, green and warty, but she is more of a ‘Charmed’ sort of beautiful witch eh  :-)
 I loved the picture of the witches legs sticking up with the green and black stripey stockings and the haunted house, so I used those 2 pictures mainly for my inspiration :-)

I coloured her with Copics and fussy cut her out ,,, took me ages ,,, she would be fab as a stamp and die cut !!! Isn’t her little cat cute,,, looks just like my Cassie or Jack,,,, :-)

If you were here yesterday you will recognise the  haunted house and spiders web that were cut on the Silhouette Cameo as I used them on my PTW card :-) The moon was coloured with Pumice Stone Distress Ink and then smothered with Perfect Pearls ,, really beautiful and shimmery IRL.  I added Star Dust Stickles onto the windows and glossy accents on the spider, I also used a white gel pen for the eyes. The papers are from a new Bazzill Basics All Hallows Eve pack ,,, LOVE these :-)

I also made a little treat bag :-) Unfortunately we don’t celebrate Halloween here so I had to eat all the liquorice allsorts,,, shame eh ! :-) I had to buy 2 big bags to get just the right sweeties !! :-)
