Have a Wicked Halloween!!! Bug Bytes "Black" Projects

Welcome to the BugBytes Blog Hop!  I LOVE Halloween!!!  This card was so much fun to make!!  You should have arrived from JEN's blog .  Jen is the beginning!!  Please go to Pam's BLOG for the Linky Party and the lineup in case you get lost!!

   I tried out a new technique for my project today!  
Lydia (one of my fellow designers at Frosted Designs) did a tutorial recently about stamping on masking tape and I found the perfect project to try it on!!
I put 5 strips of masking tape on the back side of my Fiskars mat.  I used my Wicked Close to my Heart stamps (the hat and broom) with black ink and stamped the tape.  I put the tape strips on the card and trimmed the extra off.  I took purple and green ink and sponged it on the front of the card.

I cut out these witch shoes from Happy Hauntings at 3 inches.  I cut them out in black cardstock and again in orange cardstock.
I cut of the top of the black shoes so you could see the orange socks.
I used gold stickles to create stripes on my socks.  I touched one of the socks (I usually touch wet stickles at least once per project) but I knew I was going to cover it up with the cauldron.

I used the cauldron from Create A Critter cut at 5 inches out of black cardstock.
I really struggled with how to place the boots!  They did not fit straight due to the curly toes!  I finally decided to have them toe to toe.
I adhered the cauldron to the bottom of my card with my ATG gun.  I turned the card over and trimmed the extra off.
All trimmed up!

I am not a card maker most of the time and I made a rookie mistake while stamping my sentiment.  So, I just grabbed a lime green scrap and trimmed it and re-stamped!
All better my little pretties!!
I added some purple gems to the shoes and some skinny purple ribbon to the rim of the cauldron and POOF! my card is complete!!!

Thanks so much for flying by!!

Your next stop in the hop is Jeannie!

I love the card and your honesty about making mistakes. I know stamp the inside of the cards first and if I mess up I can start over. Thanks for the idea about covering with a different piece of paper.
