Witch's Brew

I'm so excited about tomorrow's new release from Crafter's Companion UK and Crafter's Companion US!  Sheena Douglass has outdone herself this time, with the new 'A Little Bit Magical' range.   Today I'm sharing a card with a fun stamp from the 'Honesty' set.  I'm sure the original intent was NOT for a Halloween card, but I couldn't resist pairing my new Authentique 'Thrilling' papers with the fantastic collection of bottles!

I colored the bottles with my Spectrum Noir markers:

Browns: TN3, TN4, TN6
Oranges: OR2, OR3, CR11
Greens: EB1, EB2, BG4
Labels: TN1, TN2, GB4
Corks/Tops: EB3, EB7
Shading: BG6, BG4, BG4

I shaded around the entire image panel by using IMAGINE Crafts® InkBlushers™ and sponging on IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink in Desert Sand, Peanut Brittle, and Morocco.  I love the effect sponging adds to the Ultra Smooth white card stock (can't even tell it used to white!).

I fussy cut the hexagonal patterned paper a bit, and the fun label that says 'Witch's Brew'.  I added some sponged ink to the edges of pretty much everything (including the card stock sticker that looks like washi tape - I swear I LOVE this Authentique paper collection!), and finished it off with a cardstock sticker tag (the 'arsenic' label). You can see from my side view of the card that I used foam squares pretty much everywhere for added dimension!

I also hand-stitched the edged of my image panel, and distressed it a bit. This was a fun card to make!

Make sure you check back tomorrow for all of the details of this fabulous new release!

I purchased that ENTIRE collection based on this card and your coloring. Your SN coloring on all of your cards is unbelievably and insanely awesome perfect.
