Hi everybody!
Hope your week is going well!

Yikes, this theme had me stumped.
Anyway, I had to lengthen the theme a bit to be able to make something, so I've called it 'Danger, the witching time is coming nearer!' I distressed the background with vintage photo, spiced marmalade and old mahogany, mixing the colours on my craft mat and swishing the tag through till it had the right colours. I used a background stamp to bring some depth and movement. I stamped the witch and cat ('Wicked' from Close to my Heart) with archival black and embossed with black EP extra fine. The witch at the top, hiding behind the leaves, has been printed onto transparent foil and fussy cut. The leaves and seed pods are some of those which I embossed with EP yesterday,you can read about embossing leaves on my blogpost from yesterday if you want . I added some witch's 'hair' and a little broom as embellishments.

Have a great day, take care of yourselves,
and thanks a lot for coming by.
