Week two of Mystical/Halloween at Art with no Boundaries!

The talented Chris of CSDesigns has created a new batch of fabulously creepy, scary, mystical images, many of them adverts for weird and wonderful things....

I've used Stylish Witch Salon Advert for my first creation:

I went through my newspaper's classified section to find an ad of similar size, copied it. The original ad was cut out after adding the circle.  I layered my image onto black card stock, added some chalk and red pen and distressing...

List of Supplies
CSDesign Image printed on white 160g paper
Paper used: Newspaper (Local), white 160g, Black card & cardstock.
Red & black fineliner, mustard & red chalk
Cutter & scissors, cutting board, double-sided tape

The list was added to show that you can make a card with the simplest of tools and supplies and a bit of imagination.

I think this will make a cool invitation to a pamper party or a bachelorette's party. What do you think?
