The Tale of the Naughty Witch Who Cast A Spell - A Third Coast Creative Coterie project!

Hello Everyone!
Let me tell you a little story about how this card came about!

This is the Tale of the Naughty Witch who cast a Spell...for Personal Gain....gasp!
Tired of paying for parking every where she went she decided to conjure up a special tree where she could park her broomstick for free and invited all her friends to use it!  But...oh no...how could this spell go horribly wrong you are wondering coz everyone knows when a good witch casts a spell for personal gain it always backfires on her!
What happened you ask?  Well let me tell you...the tree picked up it's roots and stalked off with all her friends broomsticks and she ended up having to replace them all...oh the horror of it!
Giggle, I couldn't resist a bit of silliness ;0)

I started off by stamping all the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah solar white cardstock that's suitable for Copic markers.  I used a Copic Multi-liner to draw in the same landscape details found in the Free Parking stamp behind the Witch and continued the little magic star-bursts from the Witch image across to the Tree panel so that there is no doubt that the tree is magical.

I die cut the two main panels with Spellbinders Deckle Rectangles - a large standard rectangle for the Witch and a Mega large rectangle for the Tree and a Circle die for the sentiment.  I coloured everything with Copic markers but used Prismacolor pencils to colour the Witch's face, neck and hands.  I added white highlights with a Jelly Roll pen and applied a coat of Judikins Diamond Glaze to the tree and broomsticks for dimension and to make it look all sparkly and new.  I added even more sparkle to all the star-bursts and edged all the panels with glitter glue.

 I then die cut a slightly larger circle die mat for the sentiment and larger Deckle mats for the two main panels out of the gorgeous metallic blue cardstock and a Lace Circle mat out of purple cardstock.  I also punched the Lattice trim with a Martha Stewart Deep Edge Punch out of the purple cardstock and applied glitter glue to the Lace loops on both the trim and the Lace Circle mat. 
I used permanent adhesive tape to layer all the mats and panels and ran the Lattice Trim through my Xyron to add permanent adhesive and adhered all the pieces including the grey Flourish Border and purple satin ribbon to a folded card made from peach cardstock.  I completed my magical Halloween card with a purple satin ribbon.
