Hi everybody!
Our challenge at Tag Tuesday this week is shoes. I am still sticking to my Halloween theme, though, and also keeping in the direction of she-art, the challenge at AJJ.
I die cut the witchy accessories - broom, hat and shoes, using a Sizzix die and fun-foam. I mounted the tag onto a jazzy background, and added some girly shoes which I had in my stash, and prettied up the witch's hat to match. At the moment I am enjoying making nonsense stuff!





  The second tag has been made for the Tagalong challenge - hocus pocus
The background is a piece of white card, which was smeared with black DI, sprayed with water and then dried. I stamped over it with a crackle stamp in black. The witch flying across the moon is a digi stamp, which has been fussy cut. The tree is a TH die cut, the little book of spells  has been made from black paper and old book-pages, sewn together with 'real' witch's hair. The raven and skull have been printed twice - once onto paper and once onto a transparencs, fussy cut, and placed over each other to give more depth.






Yesterday was cold and windy, but stayed mostly dry, although we had a lot of dark clouds. The first pic was the view from my balcony early in the morning:


And these two were taken at the Rhine, looking to the bridge. In the second one, the ferry is just about to cross back to 'our' side.

I was pleased to see that I was chosen for the Saturday Spotlight at Fashinable Stamping Challenges, and was in the top three at Rogue Redheads.

That's enough for today - Have a good one, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!

  27. Where do I start! Congratulations on your honors - it comes as no surprise to me. You know I love your pictures - where else could I go to have such personal pictures of the Rhine and the surrounding areas.
    Your girly girl tag is wonderful and full of humor. My first thought was "well even a witch needs a little color now and then." Your second tag is spooky spectacular. You brave lady. I have never known a witch to give away her hair and God only knows what would happen if you yanked some out of her head. Your mind, just like you talent, goes in all directions!
