Her spells call forth pale spectres from their graves…

I have another Hallowe’en card to share today, this one features one of the new Tim Holtz releases for the season, Witchcraft.

I used the sketch over at Paper Craft Crew for my layout and turned the irregular shaped element into a shaker for a bit of added interest.  I thought the ‘totally wicked’ owls from Graphic 45’s Steampunk Spells made a good background for the witch die cut but broke this up with an alcohol inked piece of Yupo behind the shaker.

I couldn’t help but use my new pot of embossing glitter to add some bling to the die cuts.  I used two parts of the die set with the cat taking the place of the embellies in the sketch.  I did add in a second embellie in the cauldron to tie in with the sentiment.  I thought the thin strip elements worked well for some Clippings Stickers and found four that fit with my witchy theme.

As my witch is brewing up some potion in her cauldron I am entering my card in the current Make My Monday challenge as I am sure she’s getting set to put a spell on someone ~ hope it’s not me!  Her familiar is definitely looking like he means harm and the pair are rather spooky on the inky night sky background so I am also linking up at Crafty Cardmakers.
