I Put a Spell on You…Day 21 of 31 Days of Halloween

Only 10 days left of October?! Really??? Ugh. That makes me sad. But, I don’t ant to dwell on that.  Since it’s Friday, I have an all Smeared Ink project to share with you.

I used another from the Creepy Lil Grumpies collection. This is, of course, the witch. She is colored with my beloved pencils.

I kept the card simple, because I love the image, and the background paper. All I did was add the sentiment, which is from the same set.

See how pretty the paper is? Those little dots are pearlized. When it hits the light right, it just shines!

I’m keeping this one short today. But I would like to mention, that I have a Crazy A** Stamp Sale going on. I have updated the original post and taken out all of the items that have sold. Please take a look, as ALL of the stamps listed are at 50% off retail. All the deets are in the post. Thanks for looking. Be sure to hop over to the rest of the Wicked Bloggers. They’re all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a spook-tacular day!
