happy halloween night ...

Hello, again!  It's been a while, hasn't it?  It's been a busy summer here, filled with lots of work-related travel and more time in Seattle (D and I love Seattle summers).  But being away from my crafty space for extended bits of time means I've haven't been creating just for the fun of it much, but I'm home now and Halloween is in the air ...

Cauldron
When I was trying to figure out the best way to execute the cauldron idea rolling around in my head, I knew I wanted something that wasn't perfectly circular for the cauldron.  Looking at the new A Muse Studio dies, I realized the top of the Snowglobe die would totally do the trick!  I die cut the Snowglobe top from Onyx cardstock, freehand cut an arc for the mouth of the cauldron, and Bob's your uncle!

And to get that cauldron to bubble, it needed a flame, right?  Bring on the Grass Border die from the main catalog!  It's great for more than just grass, you know?!  *wink*  

I added a few green button "bubbles" to finish it off (with a bit of glitter added with a glue pen).

A Muse Studio's new Holiday Catalog  is filled with Halloween goodness (you can check it out at www.amusestudio.com).
