Twisted Tuesday~ Flying By


Good Tuesday morning!  Today's Twisted Tuesday challenge is super fun!  This week we were to create a card/project with something on it that flies and the twist this week is to use at least 3 different embellishments.

I couldn't get this idea out of my head....that a witch could fly, plus Halloween is just around the corner and so this is what I came up with.  This card ended up being a bit trickier than I thought.  I used masking and reverse masking to make my card and try to explain it the best I can, but if you have any questions feel free to ask away.

I began by first stamping the witch image, the broom, and the cat using black ink.  Then I stamped the witch image and broom again onto a scrap piece of card stock and cut them out (I didn't worry about trying to cut the broom handle)- this will be your mask so that you won't end up sponging any yellow ink onto the witch. 

Then took my cut out witch and broom pieces and placed them on top of images that were already stamped (you can use a temporary adhesive to hold them in place).  Next, I punched out a circle (I used a 1 3/4" punch) onto a scrap piece of card stock and using that card stock (with the punched circle) I placed it onto my card where I wanted the moon to be and I began my sponging.  I first sponged with some daffodil delight ink and then towards the edges of the moon I sponged lightly using more mustard ink.

Once I had my moon the way I wanted it I removed both masks and then I colored in the witch using my SU markers.  I didn't worry about trying to make a mask for the cat because I wanted his eyes to be yellow anyway.  Now to create my purple background I took the 1 3/4" circle that I had punched out and I placed that over top of the moon and witch image and I began sponging my background.  I also sponged pretty heavy along the edges using elegant eggplant.

That was the hard part and the rest of my card was fairly simple.  I stamped two clouds and cut them out and placed them on my card. My sentiment was stamped and punched using my word window punch and for the bottom of my card I used some retired Halloween dsp and I scored it every 1/4" using my simply score tool and then I placed it onto my card. 

For the twist of today's challenge we were to use at least 3 different embellishments and I actually have 4.  I used daffodil delight ribbon, a basic gray button, white twine, and I have 3 small rhinestone gems placed on the witch's hat.

Sorry for the long post today, but I wanted to try and explain how I made my card.  If I have time later today I'll see if I can make a video so that you can see how I did all the masking.

Adorable, Patty! I like the clever sponging of the sky and moon behind the little witch and her cute companion.
