Bombshell Stamps' Hump Day Hop!

This week's Hump Day Hop features the Bombshell Girls' take on the October Color Challenge to use orange, black, green, and purple (optional).

Here's my card!


Bombshell Stamp sets used were the Love & Luck set (the birds), the Tattoo Background set (the spider web, Black Widow spider, and the flame border), and the Holiday Accessory set (the cauldron and bones).

The scene was stamped on light purple cardstock. The birds, bones, cauldron, and flames were colored with Copic markers. I used Spica glitter pens to add steam, cauldron contents, and drips. A Glaze pen was used on the Cauldron's handle. I stamped the spider web and bones and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. I didn't like how the bones looked, so I sanded off some embossing powder to age 'em, then added outlines to them with a Sharpie pen to define them better. I sponged Black Soot Distress ink over the entire panel. The color challenge was met with layers of black smudged purple patterned paper, plus green and orange cardstock on a black card base. The sentiment is a sticker from the same 7 Gypsies Halloween sheet I've been using. The card is a bit on the large size at 5" x 8.5"

Now that you've seen my take on the challenge, hop along to the next stop on the following list of Hump Day Hop participants, being sure to leave comments as you go to be entered to win a fabulous prize.
