Stretching Your Stamps Isn't Scary


Toni here with another THD challenge #5 inspiration card that stretches the stamps I have in my stash. And, in this case, I mean that quite literally.



Any guesses?  I'll give you a moment. How about now?

I took the lightbulb from the Concord & 9th Shine Brighter set and reshaped it into a cauldron.  As I was working up this photo for you, I realized the other stamps in this set would make great cauldron accoutrements.  Say what?!


Btw, if you guessed correctly, I owe you a virtual cookie.  Props to my friend, Tonya, the owner of The Heart Desires Store, who suggested I look at this set when I mentioned I wish I had a cauldron. I love that about her--always thinking on her feet (and enabling us with her fab products).

Another stash-stretch on this card was my use of the Avery Elle Falling Snow die as rising cauldron bubbles.  Just plain cool.  I placed Scor-Tape behind the bubbles then coated them in glam witch glitter.  The background is a Distress Ink watercolor wash--be on the look out for Distress Inks coming to the store, and the rest was colored with Copics.
