The theme for my latest DT project for It's Crafting Time this week is Orange, Yellow & Black so with Halloween just around the corner I chose a witchy theme for this piece.

Materials used.
18x10 cm piece of calico, Adirondack Color Wash – Butterscotch, Ranger Inkssentials black tag (ICT), Prima Flower, scrap of vintage black lace, flying witch image from the Graphics Fairy, buttons, ribbon and quilt batting from stash.
I frayed the calico around the edges then sprayed it with the color wash, glued the tag in place then machine stitched the black lace over the top. Printed the image onto a re-purposed manila envelope and made a “cushion” using a scrap of calico, distressed with Ranger Archival Ink, stuffed with the batting and fancy stitched the edges.

Made a ribbon bow and stuck it and the flower to a corner of the cushion. Wrote “be witched” onto a strip of yellow scrap paper, added the yellow and orange buttons and ribbon.
