Swept Off My Feet!

Halloween card-making is so much fun!  The colors are so bold and quirky.  Silly, punny and even downright corny can work for Halloween when it would fall flat for other holidays.  On top of all that, it is just fun to stretch your non-holiday stamps and supplies and use them in unexpected ways.

I've been sewing clothing for a Colonial era historical reenactment, and so I guess petticoats and bumrolls are partly what inspired today's card!  I looked through all of my stamps and found an image and sentiment that I thought would go with these witch's legs brads, and then sketched a bodice and some poufy purple hair to go along with them. 

The witch's bum is a small piece of tulle stitched and gathered and knotted, then positioned so that the broomstick barely peeks through from underneath...hopefully it looks like she is comfortably seated and flying off into the night. Of course, her little black kitten had to go along for the ride!

Bright purple glitter washi tape frames the design, echoed in her glittery purple hair and the colors of the designer paper bodice.  

Certainly silly and sure to bring some Halloween smiles and snickers (pun intended!)!  Have a great weekend!
