A New Challenge

Hello all, and thanks for stopping by ~

This week’s challenge at  Less is More is to create a one layer card, and to include the theme of Witches & Wizards. I had this cute ‘Witch’ digi stamp, and couldn’t resist getting out my Copics and coloring her up! Unfortunately, I only have 2 Copics in the ‘purple family’, so I had to do some creative blending on her cape (or is that a dress?)...either way, right? It’s funny, how anything to do with witches reminds me of the 60‘s song by Donovan, “Season of the Witch”. So, now I’m dating myself (wink) and of course, I won’t be able to get this song out of my head for the next few days...yikes!

So, here is my card:






I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful autumn weather like we’re having on the east coast of the U.S. - The air is crisp and cool, and it’s such a pleasure after a long hot summer!

Supplies:
Stamps: Tiddly Inks Digital Image - Too Cute to Spook Witchy Wryn; Lawn Fawn - Claire’s ABC’s; SSS - Like Your Style (Swirly line)
Ink: Ranger Archival - Jet Black
Cardstock: Xpress It Blending Card
Markers: Copics


Less is More Challenge:   

Until next time, take care,
Barb

She really is soooo cute (for a witch), the squiggly line in the background really grounds the image perfectly, I must give this a try myself. Thanks for the inspriation!

She is too cute! (Are witches cute? I don't know...but this one is!) you have done a fabulous job of colouring her dress/ cape - I admire anyone who can make pens work for them, I've never been able to! ;)
