Chapeau de Witch

Monday, October 15, 2012

Happy Middle of October!  Time's a flyin'!  I have a really fun Halloween card today.  My inspiration to paper piece a witch hat came from the current ColourQ Challenge picture (see below).   This color combo has to be one of my all time favorites.  Of course, I may be biased since I have an October birthday but I love all the colors of Halloween too! 

I fashioned the hat from a banner (triangle) die cut and scallop oval die cut.  I ran the triangle through a damask emboss folder then wrapped the base of it in black tulle.  The "buckle" is a Spellbinder's Shapeabilities pendant with a lavender button and Halloween brad affixed in the middle.  The paper for the buckle was leftover homemade background paper I made with watercolor paper and Dylusions ink spray.   I just love those new ink sprays!

I used the sketch layout from Freshly Made's sketch challenge and flipped it a bit, setting the border of hexagon dies cut from patterned paper on one side with a lavender ribbon and the sentiment.  All of this was adhered to a background of wavy embossed white cardstock with an orange cardstock border.

STAMPS:  Sentiment (Pink Paislee).
PAPER:  Black and white cardstock; DP- Hello Summer (Echo Park), Oct 31 (Fancy Pants Design).  Homemade background paper from watercolor paper.
INK:  Elderberry (Memento); Lemon Zest & Postbox Red (Dylusions Ink Spray).
EXTRAS:  Black tulle(Jo Ann Fabrics); damask & swirl emboss folders(Cuttlebug); Banner framelits (Sizzix); scallop oval die (Spellbinders); hexagon die (Spellbinders); Contemporary Heart shapeablilities (Spellbinders); lavender ribbon; lavender button; Halloween brad.

Happy Monday!
