Sabrina and Co

This card is for the monthly challenge at Scrappers DelightsThis card shows one of the things I love to best with digital stamps...combine or manipulate them to make them different. It is fun to see what I can do. It started out of necessity...low funds and so many themes I don't have the right stamp for(and limited funding to get one). So I would take this stamp and that one after I removed this part and combine them to make the stamp I needed. I realized quickly that it was fun and it has become one of my favorite things to spend spare time doing. And now you know my secret...haha. There are actually six different stamps from Scrappers Delights on this card: Sabrina the Witch, Esmeralda, Evelin, Edie, and the broom Esmeralda is holding and cauldron came from the Witches Accessories stamp set. Whew! I think it makes a pretty sweet scene and it was a test of skills and will. But I really like the way it turned out! And my adviser, Brittany  (yes, she helped me again) and I both thought it needed no color...that it would just detract from the feeling the combined stamps give. I used Stampin' Up paper to make the card base and Georgia Pacific to print the stamps on. The background paper is another from Bearly Mine Designs, and the ticket stamp is from  When Scrap Hits The Fun. The buttons are from my stash and I used DMC floss in the button. So there you have it, another challenge card done! Woohoo! Wish me luck.
Thanks for stopping by. Take care.
