Halloween inspired

Hi All


This card has come about after making lots of pieces of blended batik and I just loved this heart piece. There is a great sketch over at Inspiration Card Sketches that I wanted to have a go at and the theme at Gingersnap Creations is red and black, so I decided to combine the two to create this card. Because there was black in it I decided to follow the Halloween theme but it's a bit early for it really.The little witch is from my downloads at the Shabby Princess, papers are from my box of bits and the heart stamp is Creative Expressions. If you still haven't tried the blended batik technique - don't forget it's described by TH in his book the Compendium of Curiosities.

Have a fab weekend.
