Witch's Brew

Good evening!
I'm coming in just under the wire with this week's challenge over at The Play Date Cafe. I love color challenges which is why I always try to play along even though Tuesday is a bad day for me. What's your favorite kind of challenge?  

Here are this week's colors

I'm also playing along with Wee Memories Halloween Challenge. I mean these colors are perfect for Halloween right? :)

Wee Halloween + Play Date Cafe colors =

I started by printing the super cute stamp (A Day For Daisies, Witch's Brew) out several times on white card stock. I cut one with the large label (Nestabilities) to be my base then distressed it with pumice stone. The rest of the images I cut apart to color. I used a water brush and dried marigold to create their skin tone. They are a little fair skinned but I wanted it that way, they are witches after all :)
For the Pink witch I used worn lipstick, shading with barn door. Then I stamped little spiderwebs (Hero Arts, Happy Halloween) all over her outfit using white chalk ink (Hero Arts). The purple witch was colored with dusty concord and shaded with chipped sapphire. Her outfit was stamped with spiders (Hero Arts, Happy Halloween) in black ink. I colored the "brew" with shabby shudders.  For the mat I just traced the outside of the die and cut it by hand.

To create the background I stamped the background (Hero, Arts, Large Fabric Design) in versamark then heat embossed in white. I inked with worn lipstick, dusty concord, and shabby shutters. I mounted this panel on a black card base, then added the image on foam.

To complete I added glossy accents to the cauldron and some stardust stickles to their stars, and the brew bubbles.

Hope you're having a gorgeous evening, Thanks for popping in :)
