Little Witches

On first glance you might be asking yourself what on earth has this got to do with the theme "Little Witches" over at TGIF this week!!! Perhaps I can explain my thought process?

Immediately I thought about putting 3 images of different witches onto an ATC......however I could not find 3 different images I liked (I can be sooooooooo fussy LOL).......
then the words good and bad witch started a different thought process............taking me to the Wizard of Oz..............
so googled the red shoes that Dorothy wore and the sort of shoe the Wicked Witch of the East might have worn......
then I was stuck for a third set of shoes and "The Good, The Bad and the Ugly" phrase sneaked in so googled the word ugly and the picture of the crocs popped up so used that!!!
Drew the legs for both the red shoes and the crocks 'cos the pictures were just of the shoes.....thankfully the wicked shoes already had the legs! Inked & stamped the good legs with DI FJ using a T!m script........Inked & stamped the ugly legs with DI SM and Adirondack wild plum using a Cherry Pie harlequin.......added some sparkle to the red shoes and some adirondack acrylic lettuce to the striped stockings. Stamped the background with an Inkadinkadoo web and added a bit of DI FB around the legs for a bit of shading..........
In the end this turned into a Skinnie (2"x4") as it did not sit well on the ATC size.......hey!
My first Skinnie!
Thanks for the inspiration Sandy
Thanks for looking and happy Stamping!
