Another challenge Halloween ATC

I'm not done yet - I should pace myself, shouldn't I? This uses a very loose interpretation of a sketch from CPS to make another ATC.

There are two things of note about this card. One is the cauldron. Some years ago, I did a digital tutorial on how to make a cauldron using the ellipse tool in Paint Shop Pro, and as I recalled that the little circles in the kit were supposed to be cauldron bubbles, I quickly applied what I knew about building a cauldron with ellipses to using my circle and oval punches.(I only discovered the punched cauldron in the kit after I had made my own). I used the greenish wrinkly stuff for the brew, and since I used the punchinella in the kit as a background layer, I ended up not using the cauldron bubbles at all.
The moon image is also from the kit; it is punched from yellow vellum. I don't have vellum tape, and I had read earlier on the SumOfAllATCs that one shouldn't use liquid glue on vellum, but that double-Stick tape was pretty good. I put a strip of double-stick tape behind the top third of the moon, which was good enough to hold it, but there was sticky showing through the eyes. That is why I glittered the eyes - it's hiding the sticky. The glitter is embossing glitter from CTMH. The leaves are paper confetti that I picked up at Target a couple of years ago, sponged with a little distress ink to tone down the brightness. I use some of it every fall, and I don't think I will ever run out.
I have not even begun to scratch the surface of what was in this kit. To see photos of the entire contents, and perhaps even grab one of the last few available, you should join TheSumOfAllATCs. They do swap more than just ATCs; the charm swap I've been going on about is hosted there, too.

OOOH! How creepy and scary! I just love it - especially the green background piece and the shiny cauldron!
