Halloween Witch Silhouette

I can hardly believe that it's September already. And, again this year, I am behind in designing my Holiday Cards for my classes. Every year I vow to start Christmas in July and Halloween in August. But, this year, I was waiting on my NEW FSJ Halloween stamps to arrive. And, it was well worth the wait. 

I started by cutting the moon using a circle die. You can't see in the picture, but I used a sea sponge and a tiny bit of the Black Licorice ink to make it look like shadows on the moon. 
Then I held the circle in place on a piece of Denim Days Cardstock and sponged some white Panpastels around the moon to look like a halo. 

I then thinned down some white Gesso and splattered the cardstock. Then also used silver Silks to splatter more. I wanted it to look like a starry night. 

I added a strip of Silver Sparkle Tape below the moon and tied some Journey Licorice Twist Twine around it.

I stamped "If You Got It Haunt It" from the Creepy Kids Stamp Set. Then cut a slightly larger piece of the Silver Mirror paper and mounted them to the bottom right corner. This Mirror Paper is so shiny that I could look in it to put my lipstick on.

I stamped the witch with the Journey True Color Fusion Black Licorice Ink and heat embossed it with Clear Embossing powder to give it more dimension. I fussy cut it because I LOVE to cut, but this set does come with a matching Die Set.

I finished the card off by adding some Journey Special Celebrations Silver sequins.
