Best Witches!



Happy Halloween, crafty friends!  Julie here from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers. I'm picking up an extra post today. It is pure pleasure to have an opportunity to work with these paints a little more.  And what day could be more fun to post than Halloween?
Those of you who frequent my blog and know my style know that I often make 2 similar cards using the same card base.  That's what I did today.  I cut one 8 1/2x11 piece of gray cardstock in half, made two card bases out of it, and built from there.  So, I have two similar in design, yet quite different in appearance cards to share.
Here's the first one:
 
 
I stamped my witch hat image, then painted it with the following Creative Inspirations Paints: Pumpkin, Orange, Light Purple, Royal Purple, Evergreen, and Green Olive.  I love how well the paints blend together!
In real life, the witch's hat is incredibly shimmery! I tried to get a photograph of the shimmer.  Photos just don't do these paints justice, but here's my attempt at it:
 
 
Can you see the shimmer on that hat? It's so pretty it spooks me!
Now, on to the second, similar card...
 
 
I used the same stamp for my image, the same colors of Creative Inspirations Paint (Pumpkin, Orange, Light Purple, Royal Purple, Evergreen, Green Olive), but mixed it up some, changing the look of the witch's hat.  Both hats are fussy cut, then attached with foam tape for a little 3D effect.
And, here's another view of the second card, again trying to photograph the incredible shimmer of Creative Inspirations Paint.
 
 
I love, love, love that shimmer!
Which card is your favorite?  Or is that, witch card?
Here are all the paints I used. So pretty.
 





Thanks for visiting today. For more details about these cards, and to see what other spooky projects I've been working on, please visit my blog, Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.  Have a safe, candy filled Halloween!
