Witchy Woman

Happy October All:  I was looking through Pinterest a few months back and discovered Lavinia Stamps; and I'm hooked.  These stamps speak to the whimsey in me.  I know dorky.   So back in June I ordered a few.  The stamp company is in the U.K. so shipping takes awhile.  So bummer my order hadn't arrived my the middle of August so I emailed the company.  Worked with both Jane and Tracy and they sent me a new order.  I finally got them last weekend.  And I must tell you I fell in love with this witch stamp.
  She is just fun.!!  Creative Card Blanche's October challenge is -
Witchy Woman-  Well this stamp is perfect.  so my pulled out my inks, canvas, water color paper, paints, plastic, stickies, perfect pearls and stamps and got to work.  I made a few color combos to see what screamed Halloween to me.  I made a couple of messes and in the trash they went.  I sometime have trouble inking the stamps that aren't rubber.  So I went through a few pieces of scratch and water color paper.

Once I got the scene the way I wanted it.  This is what I came up with.  Hope you like it.

I like Lavinia stamps too (although they are easier for me to get my hands on them!) but have not seen the witch one, she is fabulous! I love the wonderful background you created for her too, it is wonderfully eerie and the black frame is just perfect for her.

Thanks for your visit and lovely comment too, I really appreciate it. Anne x
