For my next card, I created a lamppost with the arrow, swirl and lantern. The border is a new Martha Stewart edge punch (Spiderweb) for me and the top border is cut from Cosmo Cricket's Haunted: Eerie paper, then lightly dry-brushed with white acrylic paint and sponged with black ink (that would be Memento in tuxedo black, Melissa!). I coloured the lantern and cat eyes with copics and applied crystal effects to make them shine. I couldn't tell which was the better picture, but you'll see the original version and a little later with extra half pearls on the border and glitter glistening in the spider web.

A Wicked Wardrobe!
I'm excited to be playing along again today as the Baker's Dozen shows sneaks of Hangin' Out Wicked Wardrobe. This may be my favourite Whimsical Wishes set yet!! I have two cards today and another to share with you tomorrow. I designed the set so the witch's dress could hang on a line or be combined with the sweet witchy head, satchel and hat to create an adorable witch. So... I had to use her in my first card! I coloured my witch with copics and prismacolors/gamsol and flocked her trim and hat with Martha Stewart flocking powder in ladybug, which I hope shows up if you zoom in. I wanted to keep the layout simple but add texture with tulle.
