It's a Costume Party!

Hi all and happy Thursday! Are you ready for a little costume party? Impression Obsession is! In fact, that's the theme for today's Impression Obsession DT Challenge! 

So, how do you play? Make a card inspired by your favorite Halloween costume! Are you ready to see mine? Actually, it wasn't *my* costume, but my daughter's. A few years ago, I showcased this fun picture one of my best friends took of my DD out in front of our house....

I just adored the way she jumped for the photo and you'd swear she was flying! ;-) So, when I went to create my card, I knew just the stamp set I would reach for! It's called Witch on Broom by Sarah Phelps and the sentiment is called Every Day with You. Here's a peek!

I stamped my little witch with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored her up with Copic Markers and used these colors: C7, C5, C3, V04, V06, YG00, YG000, RV02, YR04, YR07, BV00, and BV000.Then, I accented with a little glitter glue and a little white gel pen. I also used a few Spellbinders dies and picked up the Wonky Rectangle and Labels Twenty Three.  Add some gingham ribbon and paper piercing and... voila!

Here's a closeup!
