hocus pocus ... purple witch

I couldn't resist playing with the LYB papers some more before putting them away.

I also wanted to start using some of my old Hallowe'en Tildas. I bought them last year but too late for Hallowe'en and never got a chance to use them.

This entry is for TWO challenges.

I used this week's sketch over at Friday Sketchers.

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge want to see the corners of our creations decorated. Mine are a mixture of inked or painted or both!

Here is what I came up with (click any photo for a better view).
The papers used are from the Little Yellow Bicycle ~ Frightful collection. I used Candy Dots, Bats & Jacks and Orange Weathered.
All of the edges have been inked, either orange or black. The words 'hocus pocus' were stickers from the same LYB collection. I mounted them onto chipboard and inked the edges.

The image is Magnolia ~ Tilda with Spiderweb and I coloured her with my copics. 

I painted a black frame around her with crackle paint and then inked the edges with orange ink.
I made the pumpkins using stamps from the same LYB collection.

Thank you for looking.
having a {me} day
