Then the charm is firm and good



I have my last Hallowe’en card for this year to share featuring Witching Hour from The Paper Shelter.


I’ve kept my card deliberately CAS as I wanted to play along at Simply Create Too where that’s the current theme.  So I’ve just coloured my image, added a sentiment and a bit of inking around two edges to finish off the card.
 
Over at the Alphabet Challenge they are looking for a quote on projects so I’ve added a fitting one from the witches in Shakespeare’s Macbeth.  I used a font styled like Shakespeare’s handwriting to print the two lines from the incantation the witches use as they boil their cauldron full of foul broth.

So spooky is the current theme at Fussy and Fancy and, although she is not as haggard and ugly as the stereotypical witch, I think my card is still styled for that adjective.
