I CASEd this wickedly awesome Halloween card design from Marie Glath, an Australian demonstrator. Here are my Two Cool versions...
Ohh, I just think these witches' feet from the Wicked Cool stamp set are SO adorable! You can really give their legs lots of personality simply by the colors you make the socks, and the style of skirt you create! Fun!
Skirts: To make the dresses, I used different border punches (and the Square Scallop Duo Die) on scraps of card stock, then trimmed them by hand into a skirt shape. I should have stamped them in VersaMark for a little pattern, or ran them through an Impressions Folder, so they'd match the cool boots! You could even crimp them to make them "pleated" skirts! Tee hee!
First I inked in Basic Black, then I kissed the stamp onto an uninked Fine Flourish stamp to lift some of the color off.
Colored Rhinestones: No witch's shoes would be complete without a little bling! I created color-coordinated Rhinestone Jewels, trying out two different coloring methods I had heard about.
In the first card, I colored over the Rhinestones with Stampin' Write Markers, then added a bead of Crystal Effects over the top to try to seal it. The glue muted the color and it took a long time to dry, so this isn't the method I'd recommend, unless you need to match your colors exactly.
For the second card, I colored the bling with Shapie markers. Since they are permanent, and available in a wide variety of colors, and dry quickly, this way works like a charm!
