Be-Witched

Hello .. today is Saturday and iam so envy to all of you who can go to the "Stempel Mekka" in Germany - as i was told that it is Europe's biggest Expo for paper crafters.
This is my 3. card i will sent to Sweden using the cute new Magnolia Halloween stamps. I used the swirl Magnolia sent me to create my very own background paper. I embossed it with Moonglow embossing powders. If you visit Pretty Pressings regularly you know how much i love these powders. They are amazing on dark papers. The powder i used on this card is called Moonlight black and it looks copper on the picture it does look different in real. Since i did not want to cover all my embossing (you do not want to cover up all your hard work right :-) i skipped a sentiment (think it is obvious) and just added a clear spider in one corner - which allowes to see the cs underneath. To make the spider still stand out i added to the edges some Stickles. I was thinking to add a silver thread to her bottom but it just did not look right.

Embellishments: fake May Arts ribbon (found at Michaels), Making Memories brads, Stickles, ACCU CUT spider die from acetate, Moonglow embossing powder
CS: Bazzil: CS as base, Bling green CS, Stampin up: Whisper White, Basic Black, Orchid
Coloring: Copics

Dear Claudia, I stopped by just to check if you had a new card and wow! It is just stunning. I really love it. The embossed background is gorgeous as is the coloring of cute Tilda! It sounds like the show in Germany is the place to be! Too bad we are so very far away! Enjoy your week-end!
