Ooh, Ooh, Witchy Woman...

Happy Monday Everyone!!! As I'm writing this, I'm sitting in front of the television watching a decorating show and eating a granola bar that tastes like bird seed. Except for the flavor of the granola bar, I'M IN HEAVEN! Hubby took our son to the running track for some excercise so I have a little more alone time. I spent the better part of the day working on sales tax reports for multiple states before getting really burned out. I needed a mental break, so late in the afternoon I locked myself in my craft room. My brain was so fried that I couldn't possibly assemble a coherent sentence, but maybe I could assemble a card.

As I sat at my craft desk, I remembered that I had colored two images of Witch Tilda a couple months ago when I was working on projects for Magnolia Ink. I used one for a paper bag Halloween invitation, but there was still another somewhere on my desk. I dug her out and away I went.'s my card. I hope you like it!

Ooh, Ooh, Witchy Woman

I had so much fun putting this card together. This little Witch Tilda is my favorite Magnolia Halloween image. I paired her with African Sun and Bat, also from Magnolia. I just loved turning the African sun into a spooky Halloween moon. I'm so pleased with how it came out.

Here's an artsy view of the card :-)

The dp's are from BG's 'Eerie' collection and they're just awesome. Some of my favorite Halloween patterns to date. The purple and black cs is Bazzill. Both the web-like ribbon and totally cool button are from my stash. The button kinda reminds me of a crystal ball. The center is like a marble with black and white swirls. The metal frame around it looks so perfect with this card. The bat was cut out and then covered with crystal lacquer. Both the American Greetings sentiment and the Jolee's spiders are from my scrapbooking materials that I haven't used in ages. The sentiment is a clear, puffy sticker like thingy that I backed with white cs and trimmed with an x-acto knife. Both Tilda and the bat are raised up on dimensionals.

I colored the images with a combination of Copic markers and watercolors with Ranger Distress Inks. Unfortunately, I no longer have the color details. Sorry :-(

I want to thank you all for your lovely comments.  I read each and every one and they always put a smile on my face.  Thank you so much for taking the time.

Well, that's all I have for today.  Thanks so much for stopping by :-)
