Best Witches Broom


My Halloween card today uses an image from the Lockhart Stamp Company. On a piece of Very Vanilla paper the broom was inked with VersaMark then StazOn Black and embossed with clear embossing powder and a heat gun. The handle was colored in Chocolate Chip and the broom in Distressed Scattered Straw. Next, I sponged around the image in Distressed Antique Linen, Wild Honey, Tea Dye, Spiced Marmalade, Brushed Corduroy and Black Soot.

I adhered the focal image to a piece of Basic Black then added a witch hat brad, orange rhinestones and ribbon. These pieces were then mounted to a piece of Memory Box Blackbird Designer Paper.

The cat image is from the Spellbinders Halloween Fence Scenes die. I added some green glitter paper for his eyes.
