I Finally Got Her Done!

This is the Halloween card for my niece -- isn't this little witch the cutest? She's a digital stamp from Enchanted Inspirations. You can find a link to Michelle's blog on my sidebar. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this image - it was just finding time to sit down and do it!

I printed 3 copies of the image - 2 on white card stock and one on purple. I wanted the dress to be a vibrant purple and I just wasn't liking what I came up with using markers or watercolors. So I paper pieced the dress instead. I just printed it off, cut it out and the glued it down on one of the white images. Everything else is colored with my ZIG markers. I used the second copy printed on white to color in and cut out all the little candy corns on her dress. The stars I colored with my silver gel pen and I went over the little polka dots with a copper gel pen. Oh and do you like the little fringe at the bottom of her dress? Once I cut the purple dress out I turned it over, added a strip of double sided tape and then cut little pieces of black embroidery thread and stuck it into the tape. Once that was done I turned it over and gave it a trim.

The rest of the card was pretty easy. I sponged the witch's panel with both black and navy blue ink. The flowers were made with a combination of punches and Cuttlebug dies. Oh and that orange and gold polka-dotted paper I got at the Target Dollar Spot.

Thanks for stopping by!
