You're next....

I was embracing my dark side yesterday. This is what came about:

 here is the inside:

The bell jar and voodoo doll are two separate stamps, I just did a bit of masking to sit the doll inside the jar. (pay no attention to the fact that I stamped it crooked...even using my MISTI. sigh. Note to self: in future, stamp image first then die cut panel! Sigh) The image was colored with my Spectrum Noir markers. I sort of CASEd the coloring of this card by Hermine Koster. (Thank you Hermine, for the inspiration!) Once I had the image colored, I masked it and sponged a couple colors of Distress Ink around it. I flicked water over the panel, let it sit  a few seconds, and sopped it up with a paper towel. Then I spritzed Graphite Glimmer Mist over it, before removing the mask. I knew the sentiment I wanted to use, but didn't have a stamp that said it, so I did a bit of masking parts of a couple stamps to come up with it. That's heat embossed in white onto black cardstock. The inside panel was stamped then more sponging applied to finish my card.

I need to tap into my dark side more often. This was too much fun to make! Muahahahahaha!!!
