Tilda the Good Witch...

TGIF Everyone!  I used to really enjoy making little scrapbooks and one of my favorites is the 'paper bag book'. So, I decided to do something a little scrapbookie and make something with a Halloween theme using a brown paper lunch bag.

Here's my creation. I JUST LOVE HALLOWEEN!!!

Tilda the Good Witch

I just think this image is so cute! She looks as if she just plunked down in the middle of those pumpkins! The image is Witch Tilda & Pumpkins and she is sitting up against the image titled Pumpkin & Leaves.  The dp's are from BG's 'Eerie' collection and cs is Bazzill. The black flower is by Magnolia. All ribbons are from my stash. I collect ribbons, paper and flowers so I have a pretty good assortment. The gems are from Little Yellow Bicycle.

This photo shows how the poem slides out of the pocket that was created when I folded the bag in half. Along the crease, I punched three holes, secured them with eyelets, and added the ribbons.

I found this poem on the internet and there was no author listed. The picket fence was punched with a new MS punch for Halloween. The embellies are from Little Yellow Bicycle.

Here's the inside of the card. The embellies are from Little Yellow Bicycle, The Paper Company and Jolee's Boutique. I used my Nestibilities to cut the jagged circles for the sender of the card to write a personalized message. The shape reminds me of a spider web, so I added the cute little spiders to it. The sentiment on the right is by Hero Arts.  The Bat is by Magnolia.

I colored the images with a combination of Copic markers and watercolors with Ranger Distress Inks. The details are as follows:

Copics - E00, 02, 42, 43, 44, 50, RV21
 DI's - black soot, walnut stain, weathered wood, shabby shutters, spiced marmalade, dried marigold, wild honey, bundled sage, forest moss, dusty concord

That's all I have for today. Thank you so much for stopping by and for all of your lovely comments that you leave behind. I read everyone of them and they always bring a smile to my face. I truly appreciate them :-)
