I named myself The Crafting Professor, since I'm a crafter, and I'm a college professor. I went through many, many years of graduate school, and the best source of relaxation and stress relief was being in my craft room or going to a local crop. Back then, I never told anyone that I was a full-time graduate student. I was waiting for the day I would scrapbook my graduation page. Now, I run the ScrapbookerPhD challenge blog (http://scrapbookerphd.blogspot.com), and am bringing my passion for crafting and teaching together. But here, at The Crafting Professor, I'm just sharing my work with like-minded crafters from all over the world.

For this project, I was inspired by the monochromatic challenge at Simply Betty Stamps. I chose this beautiful Mrs. Witchy Boo. Having just seen the play Wicked, I knew I had to get some green in there. I used shades of gray to color Witch Boo: C0, C1, C3, C5, C7, C8. For the green, I used G17, G09, YR25, G20, and G21.
I cut her out using a Spellbinders die cut, and I added the black butterfly and the black and silver gems. To add the sentiment, I cut a small banner on my Cricut and stamped the sentiment from CardzTV More Spooky Sayings. I adhered it with a silver brad.
