The Digit-al Dozen DOES Halloween ..... Witches

Hi Goddesses

Today's post is soooooo simple, anyone can do it, and I really mean that.   There is no freehand involved, just some sponging and stamping.

I am also quite disappointed.  This is where my skills don't match my imagination.  I LOVE witches.  They were always the books I read when I was a little girl, and I am convinced I was a witch in a previous life.   But draw a warty nose on a nail ?  Nah, not happening.

So, this started life as China Glaze No Plain Jane, one of their new Bohemians.  It's photographed nicely, but I really didn't like it on me.

I then sponged around the edge with a dark purple - possibly KIKO 334 - to give it that distressed vintage look.

And then I stamped.   The witches came from one of the new mini Dashica plates, Dash3 (although I've seen pretty much the same design on other plates I've got), and the pussycat came from Dash12.   I wanted a really scary skinny pussy, but I just didn't have one.

And finally, the hat is from BM-209.   Slap on the top coat, and you're done.  As I said, no great complexity, but I do think the sponging makes it look a little more interesting than it actually is!

Enjoy xx :)
