Hi all, I am back again from France, had a great time but did miss blogging so today I thought to try out some of my new goodies.

The Rick St. Dennis Halloween rubber stamps from I Brake for Stamps, some DecoArt Americana Acrylic and, Glamour dust glitter paint  also Decoart. Also decided to use Americana crackle medium Weathered Wood.

first a pic and then I will tell you what I did.

I took a piece of cardboard and gesso-ed it. Then painted a base coat of Spiced Pumpkin (Da310) I wanted to use the Glamour Dust glitter neon orange (DGD24) but the gesso came through so that's why I added the Spiced Pumpkin first and then the glamour dust glitter neon orange, that turned out really cool, very neon and very glittery :-).
Then a layer of Weathered Wood crackle medium, let dry and added the top layer Purple Pizzazz (DA302), dried it using my heat gun and watched the crackle go. Then I added another layer of Weathered Wood on a part of the purple, let dry and made the top coat Hauser Light green(DA 131) and let it crack again.
I thought it looked nice but I wanted some bigger pieces of the neon orange  to show through and sanded some pieces until the neon orange was visible. The cool thing is it's very glittery but that's  always hard to see in the pic, hope you can see though.
Stamped  the Witchy and coloured her, cut her out and glued her to the cardboard.
Then painted the swirls (Tim Holz die) using Glamour Dust Glitter Purple Princess (DGD 22) let dry and glued on the card.
The broom is made using a twig from our garden and some rope and a piece of wire. (unraffel the rope, make it wet and straighten it and let dry. Once dried it stays straight.
Use the wire to attache the rope to the twig, super easy)
To finish I added a small bull clip, a ribbon, a flower and some pins, The quote is from the Wicked song Defying Gravity .
that's  it, hope you like
I will enter this in the following challenges
