‘Tis the Witching Hour of Night

I’ve got an off-the-page project to share with you today featuring the gorgeous Witchy Mrs Roberts image from Simply B Stamps, drawn by the awesome Abigail Larson and based on the beautiful Betty herself.

This fabulous image deserved a special project to go on so I’ve altered a Tim Holtz Assemblage Clock into a witch’s potion room and filled it with witchy ingredients in Tim Holtz Corked Vials.  I made the hemlock root by stripping the leaves off some model railway trees, the cauldron bubble is various sized beads, as are the eyes of newts, the wool of bat is cotton wool coloured with Black Soot Distress Ink, and the Hell Broth is ink.  Some Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells paper and a few other bits and bobs and my clock was complete.

I followed the Tic Tac Poe grid at Quoth the Raven, using the top row in my project, which is decidedly Halloweeny so I’m entering this project in the Our Creative Corner current challenge.  As it’s also a bit steampunkie I am entering it in Rhedd and Rosies’ challenge and, with my different patterned papers, also over at Penny’s Paper-Crafty.  Being off-the-wall it suits an anything goes challenge so I’m linking it over at Jo’s Scrap Shack.

There are layers to this project too with my elements inside the clock and there’s still some time to enter the layers challenge at Simply Steampunk Challenges.  So get your Steampunk on and come play with us!
