Wicked Witch

It is time for the new challenge at Frilly and Funkie.  Zoe, our hostess is calling it A Very Vintage Halloween and describes it this way:

"With Halloween just around the corner, it's time to get your witches hats on and create a project in a vintage style with a Halloween theme."

I started with some Bazzill card stock for the blank and then added panels of paper from the Tim Holtz Materialize pad. On the top panel, I used a Tim Holtz stencil called Speckles with some Aged Mahogany Distress Ink to add some "blood splatters".  All the paper pieces on this card were inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

I cut a big circle from Tim Holtz Kraft Core Shattered Collection and topped it with a bat that came in a little goodie package from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  I found the clock face online and added a skull and crossbones charm that I altered with Pitch Black Alcohol Ink and a light coat of DecoArt Black Metal Paint.  The spider charm was also treated this way.

The witch is a sinister looking lady that came from The Graphics Fairy and I hand cut a witch's hat from a scrap of black card stock for her to which I added some dollar store gems.  I made her broom from a wooden skewer and some raffia that has been in my stash for years.

The potion label was printed from online as was the pentagram.  The words were computer generated.  The bird is a Recollections stamp and was stamped with Jet Black Archival Ink.

Finally I added a loopy bow made from black organza ribbon that was tied together with black burlap string to which I added a bat charm.  The bat was altered with a mixture of Pitch Black and Silver Mixative Alcohol Inks.

I think I will enter this card in the following challenges:
