Ghouls Just Want To Have Fun

With Halloween right around the corner, I thought I would play with some new bewitching stamps that have recently been added to the So Suzy Stamps store.  I'm pairing the new Halloween stamps, "Witch with Crystal Ball" and "Ghouls Just Wanna", with the bowl/globe that Olesya designed for our holiday release.  I thought it would make the perfect cauldron for my creepy witch.  




Here's a brief tutorial on how I put this together and a list of ingredients that you will need:

-watercolor paper
-green glitter
-white embossing powder
-black embossing powder
-green misting ink
-black dye ink
-paper towel
-heat tool
-coloring markers 
-Versamark watermark clear ink
-small paint brush
-black cardstock
-designer paper
-embellishments
-hot glue gun
-adhesive tape, runner



(I recently tried a technique where I heat my embossing powder until it just begins to bubble, then sprinkles on glitter, press it in lightly with my finger and tap off excess, then finish heating.  I'm using that same technique again for my sentiment.)


1.  Heat emboss the globe with black embossing powder and versamark, onto watercolor paper.
2.  Use the technique described above, to heat emboss the sentiment.




3.  Press a paper towel onto a black dye ink pad and swipe the ink in a circle around the outside of sentiment and inside edge of bowl.  Repeat until desired color achieved.

4. Spray small amount of green ink onto craft mat and paint circles with a damp paintbrush.  Dry.



*Optional - I wanted my witch to have a collar draping over the edge of my bowl and also to fill in the gaps where she was fussy cut.  Trim a small piece of cardstock in the shape of a bowtie.  Adhere bottom edge to backside of bowl and fold upper edges down in front of bowl.

5.  Fussy cut your stamped witch and color her with markers of your choosing.  I have watercolored with Marvy Le Plume II brush markers.





6.  Run a bit of adhesive along the bottom of your witch (front) and adhere to the back of the "collar".

7.  Use strong adhesive tape to pop out your cauldron so that the sides are tightly adhered with the center pushed inwards to form a bubble-like shape.




8.  Add various embellishments and ribbons.  My designer papers are from the Graphic 45 Rare oddities collection and French Country collection..  This card is approximately 5"x 6".  The embellishments are from May Arts Ribbon and DoubleClick Skittles embellishment line.





If you're a fan of the Wizard of Oz, then you should know that I colored this witch in homage to the Wicked Witch of the West!  Or was it East?  No matter.  She was green and wicked!  I hope you love this fun Halloween card.  Be sure and check out all the Fall and Halloween stamps!  There's a huge selection and I know you will have fun looking around.  Thanks for popping in today!
