Anything Goes at Bugaboo!

The Anything Goes Challenge has started over on Catch The Bug! Here's my Card. I love this image! I used Scene-it--Halloween-Witch don't you just love that haunted House and the little witch!?! You can find her on her own in the Bugaboo store HERE
I've coloured the image with Promarkers, done a wee bit of 3D-ing, the fence, pumpkins and the little witch. (Room to do loads more!) Also added loads of black, purple, and diamond Stickles Glitter and a black 'see through' ribbon, so the papers aren't hidden too much, black and purple card with a little added cobweb detail, using my Martha Stewart border punch (I love that!)
Now the orangey/yellowy bat background papers behind the house are freebies by Summer Driggs, her lovely Boo-tiful-night- scrap-booking kit
I used the Bugaboo digi as a PNG. I put both the image and the bat paper into My Craft Studio, played with them until they appear as you see them now, printed, including a plain digi, for the bit of 3D-ing and coloured them all up and wal-lah! Simple! ( head hurts!)
I don't recommend using anything black or very dark as a background (I tied a PinkPetticoat 'Black with white Stars' first but too much of the detail disappeared into the background, see photo) Or of course you can just colour the sky in with inks! So much easier! I don't have very many (3) inks. I had a go at some inking on the inside sentiment and added the little witch cut out from a left over house.
The Font is a freebie, it's called Witches Magic down load it HERE
The purple halloween papers were freebies too. Had them for ages. They're saved on my computer as 'Halloween Freebie 04. jpg' Where's that!? I'd forgotten! (Oh no!!) Well good old Google found them over on Bearly Mine Designs! HERE (Yippee!)
I've put this post on timer...sort of unfinished. One, Blogger is again telling me I've used up 100% of my picture space (aaggghh!!) and two, I'm not here and I haven't finished the inside of the card yet. It's the village Fete today, so I'll be helping mum like I did last year... Nice to see my 'Flower Show' sign is still going strong and the Promarkers I used to do it, still look fabulous!
Don't forget to join in with the challenge over on Catch The Bug! If you're not in it you can't win it!! Use some of those freebies you've been collecting for ages!! That's it, back later to add or take things away, hope to add this card to some....
