SISTERHOOD OF SNARKY STAMPERS #19 - H is for Hopeful Halloween

For my Just Us Girls post, click here.

How did Edna get my hat?!!!!

Hello crafty peeps! As you may know, October is an important month. It's Breast Cancer Awareness month. Also, Halloween, my favorite holiday, is at the end of the month. So the Sisters decided to combine both of these for a Hopeful Halloween challenge! (Never before attempted, I'm sure!) We would like you to make a Halloween card/project, OR a pink card/project for BCA, OR go all crazy-like and make a pink Halloween card/project!!! Your choice! Of course, I went the crazy-like route - check it:

Here is the inside:

I knew I was going to go with Glinda for my card. (A witch that rocks a fluffy pink sparkly gown? Oh yes!) The dress was a bit too orangey, so I went over it with pink Spectrum Noir markers. (still orangey, but not as bad now!) I distressed and inked the edges with antique linen DI, then dotted the dress, crown and staff with diamond Stickles. As I was looking at Authentique's Thrilling collection, it had a page of labels in it, and the Glenda's Witch's Brew was part of it. Score!! (I'm guessing they changed the 'i' to an 'e' for copyright reasons. Wink!) The paper was more of a stone color, so again I used my SN markers to age it, and also distressed the edges. I added some pink tulle and ribbon under the panels. That tulle started out as white, but I smeared Worn Lipstick DI over it, and blotted off the excess. Cutting a small strip with pinking shears, I gathered it up and stapled it to secure, then glued it on the main panel. I should have waited a while to do that, since the DI didn't dry. At all. And I wound up with blood red fingertips! LOL! The background papers I dug out of the scrap folders. I printed out the inside sentiment and finished the panel with a spider web punch. I based my design from the now ended DS #172

So, now it's your turn. Up for this challenge? Of course you are! Just link up your card/project at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers for a chance to be our next Queen of Snark or Princess! Be sure to check out what my teammates and our GD, Pamellia, created for your viewing pleasure!
