Double, Double Toil and Trouble

Greetings!  Today's card is brought to you by the following spell:

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the cauldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog, 
Adder’s fork, and blind-worm’s sting, 
Lizard’s leg, and howlet’s wing, 
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

Now isn't that rather spooky?!  :-). I suppose you can guess what kind of card I will be sharing with you today.  Christmas!  LOL!  Just kidding.  Yes, it's a Halloween card.  Take a look...

So this card uses some wood veneer pieces that I don't use very often.  I found these in a local scrapbooking store and thought they were cool.  I coloured them up using my Spectrum Noir markers (TB1, TB3, TB5, TB6, CT2, OR1, OR2, OR3, DG2, DG3, DG4) and added some tiny labels I hand made and some glossy accents for shine to make them seem more like real bottles.  I made a shelf using some pieces of woodgrain paper that I shaded with my SN markers (EB1, EB7).  I drew a spider and it's web in the corner.  I layered this on some black cardstock then some green star patterned paper (Party Day paper pack by Crate Paper) and finally attaching to my black card base.  I love how my bottles turned out.  :-)

I'm linking up to the following challenges:

The Paper Players - Halloween
Spectrum Noir October challenge - use an embellishment.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a spooktacular day!


  1. Very cute, Kim! I love these images. Your coloring is gorgeous! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!

  2. Love the quoting of the spell. Great detail with the spiderweb underneath the shelf. Spiderwebs has a tendency to always be placed "underneath" something. Great card, Kim. Pepsi sends a doggie greeting to playful Summer.

  3. Love the Xmas card Kim!!! Cute little wood pieces and great colouring. Thanks for joining ATSM

  4. "Something wicked this way comes..." I've taught this play umpteen times and yes, that is a most spooky, creepy poem. Your card, however, is neither spooky nor creepy, but brilliant and awesome! The shelf of potions is amazing, and that web with the spider...perfect special touch! Thank you for sharing at ATSM!
