The Graphic Fairy). She looked rather stern, so I decided to paint her face green, give her a witch's hat and make her into a Halloween card. I will tell you, I felt a bit guilty doing this. After all, this could be someone's dear, sweet, great grandmother (although I doubt if "sweet" is in her job description with that expression). So...I am sorry to whomever this is, that I turned you into the wicked witch of the west.
Whoooo.....I feel better now.
I used Old Paper distress ink on all of papers and did some distressing of the paper edges. I used Kiwi Kiss ink (SU) to paint her face. The spider web, spider, and witch's hat are from The Stamps Of Life set, spooky2scare. I added some PK Glitz micro glitter to her hat and the Candi studs. I also added a strip of vintage lace behind the image and then tied it up with some orange, hand dyed seam binding. The sentiment was computer generated. I think this card MUST go to one of my sisters! They know my love for the movie and book, "Wizard Of Oz".
I have been enjoying making vintage cards and creations lately. I love piling on old things, and distressing newer items is super therapeutic. There are so many places that you can find really cool vintage images (for FREE) on the net. I will tell you, that I always go to The Graphic Fairy first when I am on the hunt for something special.
This is for the ATC's and Cards With Attitude challenge-Halloween/Anything goes. The "witch" image is actually ATC sized.
