If the hat fits...

I thought it would be fun to make another single layer card for Halowe'en.   It takes some planning, but that type of Clean and Simple card can be so effective.  This time I chose to make it into a scene.  It's simple, but represents a magical moment in time at the witch's house.

I decided to follow the sketch from a new challenge I found:  Stamplorations

My little scene worked itself into this sketch perfectly.

My cardstock is Naturals White which gives the card some character right from the start with those little specks and variations.  I used Memento Black ink for all my stamping and added a touch of Real Red to the bat's eyes.  I sponged my oval with Pear Pizzazz ink, after first masking the hat and the bat.  Then I added tiny dots of Tombo glue to which the Orange Stampin' Glitter stuck nicely.  I also added a few random dots of Dazzling Details.  The magic seemed to be rising from the broom!

For more cards using this sketch, check out Stamplorations.
