Free Broom Rides

Mo Manning's images just inspire me!  Hocus is based on Bette Midler's character in Hocus Pocus.  I'm afraid I went a little overboard on this card (confessing girl gone wild here).  I knew I had some black flowers somewhere and I'd just bought some silicone for better control of dimension, so I paper pieced and gave that a try on her hair, shawl and skirts, dug out my beads and jewels and EK scalloped edge punch which all would probably have been fine, right?  I also have been wanting to do some ribbon pleating so I tossed that in the mix.  I'm afraid it's all a bit much but I'm invested here, I tell ya.  Anyway, here she is.  For some reason, this image looks washed out, but the colors are more true if you click on the pic.

Bazzill CS, Graphic44 Halloween in Wonderland, MME Spider Web, Prismacolor/gamsol, Marvy scallop punch, Mo Manning digistamp, Doodlebug jewel, beads, computer generated sentiment, black grosgrain ribbon.

Have a terrific weekend, dear friends.
