Totally Witchin'--MTSC #38

First of all, can I say I love this card? 'Cause I do, LOL!! First of all, this set, Totally Witchin' is so stinkin' cute!! And Mercy's Tuesday Sketch #38 is rockin'! And I love how I cut out that spider web! And... OK, I'll stop now ;-)

I stamped the image on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers. Paper is Cosmo Cricket "Haunted" and card stock is Basic Black and More Mustard. I think most of it is pretty obvious, but I wanted to point out that for the spider web, I stamped it on More Mustard with Versamark and heat embossed it with black detail embossing powder. I felt this would give it a little more strength for the next step: cutting out the spaces with a craft knife. I held my breath almost the entire time, LOL--I just knew I'd get almost done and slip up. But happlily, I finished it up without mishap :) The spider was done with a punch, and I added golden jewels for eyes. I also added black metal brads--which is for My Favorite Things My Favorite Challenge #16--to use metal on the project. Can I say it again? I love it ;-)

I'm so glad you dropped by today--I hope you like this card as much as I do!
