Wonder which Designer contains the Grand Prize this month?

I really had fun with the Witch's Brew stamp set this month!!!   It  works great on a layout as well as a card!  Here is a look at my layout, Pretty Scary!!

I created the background using strips of paper, stencils, the Journal Mixed Media stamps, embossing paste, Memories Mist and gesso.
The haunted houses, spider web, spider and bingo cards were all cut using my Silhouette.   


To add so sparkle and bling to the layout, I used 1/8" Tear-ific Tape with Orange Surprise and Purple Rain glitter.  Strips of Mon Ami Gabby Diamond Mesh was also used.  This really add pretty "Sparkle".  Once the background was complete I tore the top and bottom at an angle and distressed the edges before adhering it to the purple cardstock.

 To create the tag I stamped the sentiment with versamark, and embossed with Tinsel EP.  The tag was distressed with gesso.  

For the 2nd tag the sentiment was stamped with white pigment ink and smeared slightly with  my finger.  I then distress the tag with gesso.

The star of the layout!

She was stamped once on white CS, the 2nd time and 3rd on DP.  I cut the skirt, gloves and hat from different DP and pieced them onto the witch stamped on the white CS. HERE is a wonderful tutorial on paper piecing. I finished coloring the remaining areas with copic markers.  She was then fussy cut out and placed on the layout using pop dots.  The sparkle on her was done using a glue pen and Purple Rain, Spirited Green glitter.

Here is a look at a card I created using the same image.  I will share all the details in the next few days, please stop back by.
