Alison the Witch: Day 8 of 31 Days of Halloween

A few months ago, I was extremely lucky, as I won the opportunity to inspire a custom digi for Christy Croll of Tiddly Inks to create. After a lot of thinking, I knew she had to look like some of the  Gothic girls that she already has…as I adore them. And I wanted her to be a witch. But she needed a familiar…and a very cool dress…so after collaborating, and Christy’s ability to envision what I was seeing in my head, she created Alison the Witch. You may have seen her before.. I have had her on my blog of course, and after that initial showing here…many folks needed to have her as their own (blushing with pride). She’s perfect. I love her. Here’s my latest creation with her…

Pink-Alison-1

Isn’t she awesome??? Like the layout? It’s the newest Deconstructed Sketch. I like it a lot. Plus, over at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog, this week, you are to use paint on your creation. The pink around the edge of the card, and the dark teal on my teal triangle is done with acrylic paint.

Pink-Alison-2

I colored Alison in with…wait for it…my…PENCILS!!! Ooh, it felt SO good to work with them again! I love my markers…but I can’t get enough of my pencils. And they have been so neglected lately. Please click on this (or any other) pic for a closer look. My husband really loves how she came out. He kept telling me…which makes me feel thrilled!

Pink-Alison-3

The color’s a little off here…but you get the idea in the other 2 photos. Now, wouldn’t you like to have Alison the Witch in your own digi collection??? You can buy her HERE.  Hmmm…her familiar kinda looks like Alex’s Edgar huh? ;)

It’s time for you to keep on hopping! Be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers. They are all posted on my sidebar. I hope you like my Day 8 project. Thank you for stopping by. Have a spook-tacular day!

Christmas Package

Hello! This week, the Stampendous Design Team will be sharing projects that fit the theme, "Dear Santa, I've Been Good!" I used the sweet Christmas Package stencil (which frankly, can be used for plenty of other occasions too!), and a scrap I had leftover from the Chevron Stencil. Check out the full tutorial below.



Supplies:

DWLL466: Christmas Package
DWLX7026: Chevron Stencil
MGK01: Fall Micro Glitter Kit
MGK02: Christmas Micro Glitter Kit

My Colors Cardstock: Dare Devil, Parrot
Molotow: 2mm Round Pen in Signal White
EK Success: Corner Rounder

Directions:

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
