Glitzy Halloween Witch

Hi Dreamers!
I am feeling better and manged to finish the Halloween Witch card.  I am still a bit feverish, so my card seems a bit wild to me.  You know, kind of like when you make cards at 2:00 in the morning.  The cards always seem to turn out a bit on the wild side....well, I guess mine do.  I used the stamp Victorian Halloween Collage (JB-060-Q) from Third Coast Rubber Stamps.  The stamp is stamped on white cardstock.  I used Liquid Perfect Pearls and Stickles to decorate the card.

See, what I mean?  It is a bit wild.  I used the liquid Perfect Pearls straight from the bottle to outline the image.  I diluted it with water to  make a wash and painted it on the black CS.  I like how that looks.  The orange piece is white  CS that was distressed with Distress inks ( Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge, Barn Door) and then dry embossed.  After dry embossing, I went over the paper with Black Soot and Vintage Photo.

 I added a length of ribbon and glued some orange buttons onto it.  

I went wild on the inside too.  


I am going to send this to my BF for Halloween.

And, now for a few Challenges!!
