I'll get you.....

Hello fellow Crafters,

Today I did another instalment in my Wizard of Oz series. I've  had the Wicked Witch stamp for a while but I hadn't used it yet. So today was the day...

I couldn't get the colours quite right in the photo, whether is was the light (bit autumnal here) or the color combination on the pages I don't know.

Anyway, I brayered lilac and purple Distress Ink over the pages and liked the effect. I then used a stencil (roman letters) with the same colours of DI. With grey Archival I stamped the text and the heads in the background. Next I stamped 'wicked' also in the same DI colours randomly on the pages. On the right side of the page I stamped (part of) the 'calendar squares' and used white rub-ons to put the words in them. Next I used a white pen to colour the little eyes of the heads. The Wicked Witch was stamped on the page and on white card stock, coloured and clear embossed. I cut her out and glued her on top of  her image in the journal. The sentiment is from the 'Wizard of Oz' film and I typed it on my recently acquired old typewriter. I again used the same DI and a bit of the grey Archival around the edges and glued the words down on the page. That was it, I really enjoyed doing this one.

These are the stamps I used (all from Stampotique):

Thanks for stopping by !

Hope you like it .....


  1. Mooi die achtergrond met fijne details! Gave tekst en mooie kleuren! Groetjes, Gerrina

  2. This is such a fun journal page.
    I really like the composition and the faces peeking in the background.

  3. What a great journal, Corrie! I have none of these images, but have to admit they work perfectly together. Love the darker background, as it makes the witch just COMMAND center stage! Great work!

  4. Oooh loving that background and your witch is fabulous and so vibrant, won't miss her in the dark - lol xxx
