There's Something "Familiar" About This Witch!

Hi! How are you today?I had a weird-weather-at-work day yesterday. I watch the kids at recess at my daughter's school, so I am outside for 2 hours a day (yes, even in the winter, in Alaska!) Yesterday, in that 2 hour time frame we had a light, very cold drizzle that turned into freezing rain and hail. After hurrying to get the kids inside, everything stopped and the sun came out. So we were back outside for the next recess, only to have it all start over again 30 minutes later!!

On to my card! I loved turning one of the Dressy Miss Anya'a into a witch a while back, so I decided to do it again and give her a Familiar this time! This is also for the color challenge over at SCS - Crushed Black Razzelberries (I love how that sounds!) and I used Mercy's Sketch #40. I masked the flower in her hair so it wouldn't stamp and drew her witches hat separately, cut it out and glued it on. I also drew her little broom, cut it out and glued it behind her back.

The Details:
Stamps: Miss Anya Dressy, Ginger Bell (cat) - The Greeting Farm, Sentiment - Taylored Expressions
Paper: Crushed Curry, Rich Razzelberry, Basic Black, Whisper White, PTI White
Misc: Cuttlebug Embossing folders, EK Success Bat Punch, Black Stickles

This card is for week 4 of the Viva la Verve challenges at SCS. This week's has a sketch and the added challenge of "black and white". I am not sure how much I love this - I may try it again if I have the time. My brain has a harder time thinking of cards without coloring, but I am trying to get better at it! The stamp is from Verve, the paper is K&Co, and I used a CB embossing folder for the black background piece.

I hope your Wednesday is wonderful!

Yikes, on your crazy recess adventures! I don't think I could last even 2 hours in an Alaskan winter... ;)

And you know how much I adore your altering, this new witch is no exception and I love how used Ginger Bell as her familiar!

Fabulous transformation of the Anyas for other holidays and occasions. I really like the witch and her cat. So cute. I used to be a "yard doodie" at my son's school and I do not miss the heat or the rain at all.

Gorgeous as always! Love the witchy Anya and her black kittie! And that broom!! Seriously looks like it was part of the stamp. You never cease to amaze me!

I think we need to keep Halloween all year long!!

I love these colors together. They are soooo rich and with those swirls really adds a touch of elegance to this card. You coloring is amazing as always. How do you mask out that flower? I know how to do the masking with multiple stamps but with the same stamp I'm not sure how to do that.
