remember Hanzel and Gretel?

Well remember the old Bugs Bunny Cartoons? I still love them and when I can, I watch them proudly:) One of my favourite characters is good old Witch Hazel. She would find herself funny, cackle, click her heels and take off with hairpins flying around her. Well I had no stamp of her so I found this image on the internet and I drew her from the screen I saw(nope no tracing-free hand but from an image). I coloured her in tombow markers and then I added the Cat in black sparkle, the pumpkin, The saying(in purple sparkle) and the butterfly punchouts. I thought even a witch deserves some butterflies and hopefully she does not put them in her pot for toil and trouble. I believe this should work for Flutterby Wednesdays (use purple, orange and black), Simon Says (punch them), and Crafty Creations (Autumn or Halloween see below too:)). Oh I LOVE Halloween! Oh and good Old Witch hazel was introduced in the Bugs cartoon where she is trying to catch Hanzel and Gretel in her cute cottage....

...So here is the cute cottage. I used glossy white paper and then I sponged reds, oranges, a light green (in the centre) and browns for the image. I stamped and embossed the leaves, coloured them with tombow markers and then cut them out and placed them around the card. This was supposed to be for a previous challenge using red, green, yellow, brown(I think I got the colours right) for one of the challenges but I have been so busy that this card was just set aside but it still fits for the Crafty Creations (Autumn or Halloween) and the Stampman Challenge (for Men). I have a friend's birthday today and this will be perfect for him. I love the brown leather looking cardstock too and had to showcase it a bit.

  2. Oh my...I LOVED that cartoon, too!!! That witch was a hoot! You've done a fantastic job at drawing her!

  3. I was LOL at your reminder of Bugs Bunny! I remember the cackle. I so need to watch an episode on youtube. Your witch card is eerie...I was trying to think of something a bit more dramatic than sweet. :-) I like how you added the butterflies around the card because it highlights the orange. Thanks for playing a long with us at Crafty Creations!

  4. Oh I love Bugs Bunny!! Fun, fun card! and the other one is so pretty! Thank you for playing along with my flutter by challenge!

  5. I am so impressed that you drew Witch Hazel! We love watching Bugs Bunny cartoons in our house and I know exactly what you mean about the hairpins flying everywhere. :) Fabulous idea for this week's color combo at Flutterby Wednesday. Thanks for getting inky with us! :)

  6. I love that witch!! She was always great in the cartoons :) The leaves in the one below look fantastic too!
