It's a Farm Fresh Challenge - Halloween

Hello again... I'm on a roll... 2 posts in one day, can you imagine?  LOL
I have a Bewitching Card to share with you that I created for this weeks "Farm Fresh Friday Challenge" from The Greeting Farm.  And then on top of that, I decided I would actually attempt something I have never attempted to do before....  The Challenge over at Make It Colorful wanted to see people create a white fog effect on their image...  YIKES... I was unsure if I could pull it off, this is definitely something that I'm going to have to work at... But okay, I did it, and it was my first attempt, so I don't think it turned out too bad for it being a first time trying..... 


I colored this adorable little witch from The Greeting Farm with copics, and the little tile that I have attached, I have actually made myself using clay... I baked it, I painted it, I stamped it with the adorable little witch from the Spooktacular stamp set, also from The Greeting Farm.  I added some gloss over the top, and some white distress/crackle paint around the edges.  It truly does look pretty cool.  I may have to do some more of these....

Now...  the foggy effect....  I was not quite sure how to go about getting that look, while still being able to see through it so the image could be seen....  Hmmmm, so I thought and thought.... suddenly I remembered buying a product one time at Michaels Craft Store, that I had hoped would work like snow, it's a bit too fine for snow, but I decided that I would work perfectly for a foggy effect....  So I got out my bottle of Recollections brand white flocking powder...  I used a small paint brush, and applied a thin layer of glue to the areas that I wanted to appear Foggy, then shook the flocking powder over it, tapped off the excess, and ta-dah....  it does appear as if there is a fog in the image....  I will definitely have to give this little process a little more thought, and see what I can do to get an even MORE Foggy effect.

anyway... that's all from me today... I'm off to go play, color, and create.... but who knows what.... I'll figure that out when I start...  ha ha....

Thanks so much for stopping by today....
