OSAAT #183 - Autumn

We have another week with an Autumn theme but this can also include Halloween, Harvest Festival, Thanksgiving, etc. so as I'd made an autumnal card previously I decided to make a Halloween card.

Come across to One Stitch at a Time to show us what you can do and check out the challenge blog for full details of the prizes.

It was time for me to choose an image from Tami at Gingerloft, over at Stitchybear Digi Outlet so I chose Whispering Trees. They look quite eerie and this persuaded me to make the Halloween card with the little witch flying over the trees on her broomstick.

I made an A6 card with Papermill embossed card and it's the first time I've used this size for years. I used Stormy Sky and Black Soot Distress Inks round the edge of the image and then attached it directly to the card base.I tied a dark blue Joanna Sheen organza ribbon round the spine edge and added three black 'gems' to the bottom right. They were from Create and Craft. The little witch charm I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts Ltd.

I'm entering this card in to the following challenges:

  4. Wow Hazel, I love the eerie enchanted forest scene you have created for your witch to speed over on her broomstick as she spreads her 'spook' on Halloween. The midnight blue ribbon and the 3 black gems convey the 'darkness' of this 'dark' night beautifully. A wonderfully different Halloween card and I L..o..v.....e it. Love Ingrid xx
