A little spooky scene....

Happy Wednesday everyone,

My first Halloween card for this year, I used a techique called Soot stamping, you can find a tutorial here.



I used a Magnolia stamp called Witch Tilda and colored her with my copic markers. For my framed image I stamped with different acrylic stamps from Studio G and Crafty Secrets.



Papers are Martha Strewart, Recollections paper pad called Ravenhead Manor purchased at Michaels & Vintage collection Core'dinations cardstock in grey which I distressed,sanded and inked with black soot distress inks. I used a perfect pearl mist on the tree background paper as well as my spellbinder lotus frame.

I am entering my card in the following challenges
