My Witchy Woman is Full of Texture and Flying in for the VLVS Party!

It's week number two of the "TEXTURE" challenge at "ANYTHING BUT A CARD"!!! ABAC is a bi-weekly challenge and today, the Design Team showcases NEW projects using the current challenge "Texture" Challenge number TWO. Head on over to ABAC and see all the fantastic projects shared by the fantastic design team AND submissions by all of you. Best part...there's still another week to play along and link up via inlinkz froggy.

Last month I hosted a bloghop featuring altered wooden spoons...and this witchy woman riding a spoon is one of the spoons I created. But she needs a home! Using plates #1433 and #1429 from Viva Las Vegastamps! I created a scene for her inside of a recycled plexiglass frame. 

This lady is full of texture for the current Challenge at ABAC. She has fibers, glittery textured embossing powder...and bling!

My spoon is base painted with Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer and Garnet Mixers. I affixed orange gems and clear dew drops in the bowl area with Crystal Lacquer {this adds bling and texture}. Around the spoon edge, I adhered orange tinsel trim with double sided tape and wrapped black raffia around the neck of spoon {more texture}.

The handle is fiber wrapped with 3 kinds of shimmery, fuzzy goodness. The witchy woman is from an collage sheet AP-458D Wicked Witches I printed her twice and cut out two images to layer above spoon to give illusion of depth. I added some dimension and pizazz to my gal on the gloves, dress and shoes by applying black embossing powder that has glitter in it.

NOW HERE'S THE her new home!

I took a sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" coated cardstock and brayered in an orange sky. I stamped the branches in brown ink first to build depth in the branches, then stamped over again in black ink. I stamped moon with clouds onto the background and also on a yellow cardstock. I fussy cut out the moon and adhered to background. I finished the scene by stamping the bats and "Happy Haunting". I'm going to love this holiday decor for years to come. **TODAY"S GAME - PLAY to WIN** Share your favorite Viva Las Vegastamps! Halloween stamp on the VLVS! Facebook wall.
