Dorothy's Adventures in Oz

Dorothy had many adventures in Oz, including the one that took her to the witch's castle.  Although it's never mentioned, I like to think her spooky castle had gargoyles.  All of the best scary castles do!

This card was super easy to make.  The "castle wall" is a brown polka dot pattern from a Glitz paper stack and brown ink for shadows.  Each of the figures and the door were stamped on a brown marbled paper.   I was hoping for a nighttime shadow effect.  The bottom of the door frame doubles as a base for the gargoyle statue.

Come back again tomorrow to see what the design team has to share with you!  Happy crafting.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
