This is SCARY or FUNNY week over at the Handmade Harbour Paper Craft Party #10 and my slightly twisted sense of humour kicked in when I saw this digi called the Witches Potion Shelf ... I'm not sure what was more fun ... coloring the image with my Copic markers or imagining my friend's face when I sent her this invitation to come for tea this week (Grin).

This time I did not fussy cut any of the image because the items were just too small, even for me, so instead I "shadowed" everything to create the optical illusion of dimension.  But after coloring the shelf I felt that it was still missing something, and then I got the idea to use my Local King Rubber Stamp cracked wall background stamp and stamp OVER TOP of everything after it was already colored!  I used a soft grey ink from Marvy called Lake Mist and this color disappeared into the darker colors (so it didn't show) but showed just enough on the lighter colors to make it look like you could see through the bottles to the wall behind... and when I added a layer of liquid glass those bottles looked absolutely 3-D!
And in keeping with the slightly aged look of the card I distressed the edges of the paper roughly enough so that the edges split and then inked the edges in Chocolate Brown ink.

So Please pop by and see what else the Handmade Harbour Design Team has come up with for this week's Challenge #10 and we'd LOVE you to play along too if you have time.. AND don't forget... if you use one of Handmade Harbour's digital stamps in your entry you will be eligible to win FREE DIGIS! as well as the coveted Handmade Harbour Winner's Blinky for your blog!
Thanks for stopping by to share again with me today... and have a VONDERFUL, VONDERFUL HALLOVEEEN  (Grin)
