MFTWSC190 - Wicked-Good Friend

Hi and thanks for stopping by today! Its Wednesday which means it is time for a new  MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge, MFTWS190All of the details about the sketch challenge are available on the MFT blog. I hope you get a chance to play along!

Here is my take on the sketch. 

I started by creating the backgrounds. I used the Small Checkerboard Stencil, sponging with Black Licorice Ink on Kraft Card Stock. Then I stamped Orange Fizz Ink on Orange Fizz Card Stock with the Linen Background Stamp.

I stamped a sentiment from the Spooky Sentiments Stamp Set on Whip Cream Card Stock. Then die cut a tag with the Pierced Traditional Tags STAX Die-namics and matted the tag with a die in the Traditional Tag STAX Die-namics. The curve is cut with a die in Blueprints 16.

The flower is created with the Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose Die-namics and the leaves with the Layered Leaves Die-namics. The flower is mounted on a doily cut with the Mini Doily Circles Die-namics.

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from the Witch Way Is the Candy? Stamp Set. 

Here are the products I used to create my card:

Today I am playing with a number of new products to create a Halloween Shadow Box. I have to say I love how the box turned out and excited to add it to my Halloween decorations! 

I will be using LOTS of MFT products in this post and will adding links to them at the bottom of the page. 

There is one photo of each of my daughters at Halloween in different stages of the lives.

Let's start at the top at the left. I used the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics to create my banner and the Little Letters Die-namics to add "Boo". I added the goo at the top with the Dripping Goo Edge Border Die-namics. The pattern is created with the Small Checkerboard Stencil and the flower with the Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose Die-namics. 

Next is the picture of my daughter Kristen. The a bingo card from my stash. I used the Delicate Doily Die-namcis and the Pumpkins are created with the Witch Way is the Candy? Stamp Set and Die-namics.

On the right the sentiment is from the Trick or Treat Stamp Set and I used the new Stitchable Dot Circle Die-namics and the Circle STAX Die-namics to cut it out. The spider is a die in the new Centerpieces Spooky Window. The background pattern is created with the Web Stencil and Light Molding Paste. 

This row starts with a picture of my daughter Kayley. The witches pot is created with Witch's Cauldron Die-namics. I cut it from black chipboard and embossed it with embossing enamel. The buttons are in Sour Apple and I added a coat of Sheer Sparkle Glitter Glaze and a little extra glitter. On the far right I put the scene together with elements in the new Spooky Scene Die-namics. The House if from my stash and the background is stamped with the new Cheesecloth Background Stamp.

In the next box  used the  Star Background Stamp for the background. The rose is cut with the Royal Rose Die-namics, stamped with the Script Background Stamp. The sentiment is from the new Spooky Sentiments Stamp Set.
