Witches Brew

With Fall right around the corner it is time to start creating Halloween cards... They are so much fun to make and this card would be no exception.. The inspiration came from the Color Throwdown color palette (see below). Before you see the challenge I would like to show you my card.. I hope you like it.

With Halloween on the brain I thought this design
would be perfect for the witches brew!
Sentiment was done using Perfect Pearls.
Embossing powder I think would have been too bright and powerful.

Below are a couple of details pictures of the magic flame.

For some reason my camera does not like black cards.. These colors are a lot more vivid in real life... (Updated Pictures with truer color) This past weekend we went camping and had the opportunity to have 'magic' fire.. Well not really magic it is a powder you place in your campfire and it turns all sorts of different colors.. It captivates both kids and adults alike.  This is what inspired this card... A bit of magic fire to start the Halloween season..

Challenges Entering:
Color Throwdown: CTD356

How to:

  1. Cut and scored my CS to an A2 size card. Set aside
  2. Cut black CS the same size as the base.
  3. Traced the stencil in select places
  4. Colored and shaded the 'flames' orange and green.
  5. Taped down the stencil on my black card base.
  6. Fussy cut each piece of flame and laid it down on the appropraite spot on the stencil.
  7. Added sentiment using Perfect Pearls. 
The stencil I used for the flames.
That is it for me tonight.. I hope you enjoyed your stay and I want to thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to visit me.. If you want to leave a comment please do; I really enjoy what you have to say good, great, or otherwise.. Take care and see you soon.

All the best,

Such lovely colours and a wonderful design and the cut out pieces stand out beautifully against the black card Shawna, and really do have the look of flames. Thank you so much for your lovely comment.
