Anything Goes Challenge at Love to Create!

Love to Create are having an Anything Goes challenge this week and we're being sponsored by the fabulous A Day For Daisies! I had a ball playing with the 'Pretty Witch' image that I used and had a go a new (to me!) technique! I had been watching the chap from Visible Image stamps on the crafty tv channel the other week and he inked up and spritzed his acrylic block and stamped that onto card - he then stamped an image on top of this background. I thought I would have a go!

I used Dusty Concord Distress ink on my acrylic block, spritzed with water and then put it directly onto the card that my image was already printed onto. I further coloured the edges with some Black Soot DI too. The image then was coloured roughly with some Cool Grey promarkers - in quite a scribbly way to match the image I feel. This was layered up on some black and purple pearlescent papers.
The background papers are from the Fancy Pants Oct 31 paper pad and I've added some die cut numbers from the Tim Holtz Bigz Die 'Boo & 31'. The web corner is Cheery Lynn and the Bats are Memory Box dies. I've used my Wink of Stella brush again on the bats and the witches scarf around her hat.
I will be entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at A Day for Daisies, and the Second Challenge 'Use a Digi' at The East Wind.
I hope you like this card today and that you will join us in our Anything Goes Challenge this week!
Remember too that you can link up to the Left of Center Anything Goes challenge 5 times this month for a chance to win some more fabulous digi prizes!
