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.






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.

Can’t wait to see what Taylor’s team has cooked up with Hangin’ Out Wicked Wardrobe today...

Thanks for looking...
