WICKED!

I had an hour to myself this morning so I thought I would join in a couple of challenges, The Play Date Cafe colour challenge and The Stampotique Challenge which this time around is to create a humorous card.
I loved the colours from The Play Date Cafe this week and wanted to incorporate the WICKED shown in the picture in my creation.
I coloured the background of my card with Distress Ink shabby shutters and then used a new Crafters Workshop template I purchased at Port Sunlight this weekend called mini branches and applied dusty concord over the template. The web and spider were another purchase from the weekend.  I added WICKED to the top of my card to resemble the one on the inspiration picture from The Play Date Cafe.  I also used the template to add some subtle shadow branches to each letter.
I stamped Mela from Stampotique onto white card and coloured with my Prisma pencils. I also added a witches hat to the top of Mela's head so she looked a little WICKED lol, again the hat was another purchase from the weekend.
The pumpkins, again from Stampotique were stamped onto white card, coloured, cut out and added to the card.  To complete I added the sentiment "HELLO GOURD-GEOUS!! sorry I know I can hear you groaning but could not resist LOL.  I was going to put a sentiment on there about old age and how we don't get older we ripen but Mela is just too young for that sentiment LOL.

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x

Hi Tracy
Brimming with atmosphere. It looks like a misty woodland behind her full of spooks and ghouls.
See how you are making my imagination run wild LOL.
Fabulous.
