You had the Power...

Happy Wednesday!!  Hope you've had a wonderful week so far.
You had the Power all along My Dear.... that's the message I have to share with you today! I love the Wizard of Oz, So I knew exactly what I wanted to do with some of my new gorgeous pink rubber from VLVS! when it arrived..
 I started by choosing my base paper again from the Nature Walk collection by 7Dots Studio, and stamped the tree and spider... I was nearly going to leave the tag like this.. I just  love the look of the two of them together, extra spooky.. these would be perfect just like this for a Halloween project..

I then stamped and fussy cut my witch silhouette image. I did this by just applying ink to her silhouette on the stamp, then wiping off any ink that may have been in areas that I didn't want inked before I stamped.  I found this worked really well with this particular stamp. I then fussy cut the image and added in a bit of black cotton thread before sticking her down with foam mounting tape. ( the tape helps to secure the cotton thread as well )

 I then stamped the awesome Glinda the Good Witch from the Wizard of Oz saying   - You had the power all along, My dear and arranged it on the right hand side of the witch silhouette, once again using foam mounting tape, to add some dimension.

 lastly I added in some UmWow Studio star confetti, and off course some Tim Holtz Idea-ology - I just love this Bat from the Halloween Adornments pack..,prima crystals and machine stitching  to finish it off.

Tag Base: 7 Dots Studio - Nature Walk - Cotton
