Not scary but cute witch

I've not managed to make much this week, by mojo has definitely gone on holiday of late - I guess it doesn't like the cold and damp weather....

There are a lot of Halloween challenges around at the moment though and I have a super cute little swiss pixie Brigitta witch stamp that has never seen ink so I was determined to play with her.  When I saw this weeks colours at ColourQ I knew how I wanted to colour her - the grey, black, tangerine tango and crushed curry they have are just perfect for her



Cooking it up with Katie gave me the inspiration for the layout - they wanted to see colouring - well my image is coloured with copics - and they also wanted to see circles and paper curling, so I cut a couple of circles in mustard and grey with nesties and distressed and curled the edges.  I used some papermania black, white and grey spotted paper and some orange striped paper to finish the layout - I do like to mix spots and stripes.

As well as the two challenges that inspired my card design, I am entering the following  Halloween themed challenges too:
