Day 7 31 Days of Halloween~ "That Shakespeare Play" on CD

Welcome to Day 7 of the 31 Days of Halloween! This is an annual Smeared Ink event and we are so thrilled to be playing along as Wicked Bloggers. The Wicked Blogger challenge is to post a new creation each day during October that contains a stamped image, digi or rubber! Check out all the rules and prize details at Smeared Ink.

There is a fabulous blog roll to follow and Hop to it! Find it on the side bar :)

Starring, CT Anne!

It begins with 3 witches round their cauldron.  I've got a CD tin for shallow cauldron, and excavated a key to stir with:

and I'm on a mission, a challenge for a swap: Scavenge to find & include, 5 or more: game piece, button, bread tag, jar label, bottle cap, tree pruning, numbers from a piece of junk mail, fuse wire, (broken) toy, diecut from milk/juice carton or can, over-used toothbrush. And I've just bought acquired a few colours of Pebeo Fantasy Prisme & Moon paints to experiment with, seen here on the back of the tin.  Lots of lovely texture on the front: crackle paint, texture paste, lots of paint washes... and the tin gets held done up with wire looped through a ring.  So far, I've not used any of the scavenged objects on the list except the fuse wire.
Inside:  Bottle caps, bread bag tag, poker chip and button.  So that's the 5, but why stop at this.
Meantime on the other inside, playing with the number 3.  And have you any idea how nice the kitchen smells when you're drying prunings from a blackboy peach tree in the oven?

With the filmstrip die, cut a milk carton (was that on the list?)  Stamp the 3 witches using some of  Mini Ancients, add some more scavenged elements - who knew peacock feathers could come this small?  The bark is from a bluegum (eucalyptus) tree.

The background papers are Graphic 45 Rare Oddities.  I get the 8x8 pads - seems to work for me.

So... are they Bag Ladies?  Or Witches?  Will they fashion the bark and twigs into brooms and fly off to make mischief?  Beware!!!!  If E6000 and fuse wire won't keep them in the tin, we've no chance!!!!

    thanks for sharing.

  6. Wow, what a lot of thought went into this piece! I'm so glad you explained everything such as the bark and twigs. This would look perfect sitting on the shelf above a bubbling cauldron in any witch's kitchen!!
