This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE - Faux Enamel and while I am not sure I did this correct, I am sure it was my 1 and only attempt at it. I stamped this witches hat image from a set called Creepy Crawly found at TREEHOUSE STAMPS in versamark then heat embossed with some irradescent black since I do not have any metallic crayons. I love this hat. I used some new crayons and was going for the same color purple that is in the dp but did not even get close, ggrrrrr. Oh well it is what it is. My layout is from today's SKETCH AND STASH CHALLENGE # 19. I used a spider from Martha Stewarts new Halloween punches. I used some dp from Recollections - Halloween stack and then went eeeekkkkkkk THS has some awesome halloween dp that I just got and forgot I had. ggrrrr. I am off to work and hoping this is not the start of another BAD week.

Stop beating yourself up!!!!! This is a super cute card.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia

This is a GREAT halloween card! I love the hat-- it has lots of depth and color to it!! Even though it may not have turned out exactly like you hoped, it picks up the color purple in the paper as an accent, rather than the entire hat. And sometimes (as in this case!) that is better-- it gets us to introduce another color which we might not normally have used!

Hey, this witches hat is awesome!!! I really like it. You get a lot of credit for doing this challenge and especially for being one of the first. I don't have the supplies, so I'm out. You should be proud of your hat; it rocks!!!
