Simply B Stamps 13 Days of Halloween: Day 10



Fairuza Balk as Nancy Downs
Talk about cutting it close, but here she is!  My entry for Day 10 of Simply B(etty) Stamps 13 Days of Halloween challenge!  The theme at Simply Challenged Challenges is Ghouls, Ghosts, Witches, Killers... from your favorite movie.  Using a non-persona stamp we were to create a project based on our favorite movie character.  I asked for and received special permission from Betty Boo herself to alter Lola Addams to make Nancy Downs from The Craft.  She is my favorite greedy, power hungry psycho-witch!  

Lola Addams as Nancy is colored with Copics and fussy cut.  I did away with her braid and her dolly to make her look more like Nancy.  The papers are Martha Stewart- Elegant Witch and DCWV- The Ghosts and Goblins matstack.  I made a frame using the Fleur de Lis Squares Nestabilities from Spellbinders and put a piece of Tim Holtz filmstrip behind it.  I used mini Scrabble tiles to spell the word "CRAFT".  I stamped a Ouija board stamp in Tuxedo Black on kraft card stock and distressed it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I can't remember who makes the stamp as it is a loose unmounted one I bought some time ago.  My finishing touches were some flowers (black roses, of course) and bling flourishes.


I am utterly amazed I got this made, blogged, linked and entered in time!  I got home at 7:30pm.  I sat down at my desk at 7:50pm with nothing more than the colored image to work with!  Sometimes it's amazing what you can do in an hour!  Three more challenges to go!  I wonder what the next one will be...

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, E000, R20, BG10, BG15, W4, W6, W8, W10) and Prismacolor Art Markers (150).
