Here's the challenge posted by fellow teammate, Marcy over on Our Creative Corner: In the "spirit" AND theme of Halloween, we will be using the MASKING technique! HERE is a wonderful link for some inspiration. Show us your scariest creation using this technique!
I started with a piece of 6-3/4"x4-3/4"Textured Purple Cardstock from CTMH, sanded off the bottom left corner, then embossed with Silver Zing. Next I fussy cut a bat from the CTMH Beware Stamp set, then misted using Tattered Angels Purple, followed by same said bat stamped in black & the larger sentiment stamp as well. I added a Gold Zing embossed moon & stars on top of the bat because I had a bit of a paper tearing in the wrong spot issue.
The top left corner started life as a piece of white cardstock, I fussy cut the witches legs temporary glued them down, then stamped the broom from the CTMH Stamp Set called Wicked, sprayed with the same purple mist, tore off the fussy cut legs & tossed that piece. I used Smooch in Brown to trace over the broom handle & spread a little of its shimmery goodness on the broom ends. Next I used some green Smooch to color the witches socks, drew some "magic" swirls using two shades of purple Smooch. I ripped the edges of both the top right corner piece & the base piece, leaving a bit of a gap on the left side of the top right corner piece. Then I attached my temporary glued bat on top of the gap. Last I took a piece of black web ribbon ( I think it's from May Arts, but it was a gift so I dunno), put a little twist in the middle of the ribbon, added a brad from Basic Grey to the middle & called it Done!
