Waltzingmouse Blog Party



This is my first Waltzingmouse Blog Party!  This month's is a colour challenge featuring purple, orange and black.  I love these colours together and yes I could have done another theme besides Halloween but I was so excited to use some Waltzingmouse Halloween images (thanks Renee for sending me some goodies to play).  Just last weekend I purchased the Memory Box Grand Maison Window Die after stalking it for way too long at the Ontario Scrapfest show in Oshawa, so I popped it up over the witch from Halloween Party stamped on WPlus9 Oatmeal  cardstock. I die cut Bewitched at the bottom of the window from Hocus Pocus also stampd in WPlus9 Oatmeal with the Stitched Sentiment Flag from Lil' Inkers.





Cardstock:  Royal Velvet, Orange Zest, True Black, Oatmeal (WPlus9)
Patterned Paper: Royal Velvet & Orange Zest Patterned Paper Pack
Stamps: Halloween party, Hocus Pocus (Waltzingmouse)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
Dies: Grand Maison Window (Memory Box), Chevron (PTI), Stitched Sentiment Flag (L'il Inkers)
other: foam squares, orange button, button twine, gemstones (Prima)
