Get your witchy on...

Hello friends!

I'm up on the Blogabella with a new Scenic Saturday card to share. Now that it is October, I go straight to the spooktacular Halloween stamps in my Stamping Bella collection when I need some card making inspiration. The first cutie to catch my eye was this Crystal Ball Bundle Girl with her little black cat. I think she is so adorable in that funny hat and her scarf blowing back behind her. The traditional Halloween color combo of purple, orange and green felt quite appropriate for her outfit, though I did save most of the green for the crystal ball since the fluorescent yellow green Copic markers give off a great eerie glow. 

For the background, I wanted to hint at the interior of a spooky, haunted castle so I colored in wood floor boards and a stone wall with a window behind Bundle Girl. I love adding windows because it provides a great opportunity to add more interest and color to your card. Not only does it draw the viewers eye deeper into the scene but it becomes a way to add fun little details that further the story you are trying to tell with your stamps. I also used this particular window as a way to add a non-traditional Halloween color to the card with that teal night sky and landscape. It's a bit unexpected but sets off this Bundle Girl quite beautifully. The window also became the perfect space for me to add the sentiment that I borrowed from the Tiny Townie Willow the Witch set

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you have a chance to get your witchy on this weekend.  :)
