Hedwig the Halloween Witch: Day 20 of 31 Days of Halloween

Greetings! I love to color. Not necessarily for a project, but just for the joy of coloring. So very often, I wind up with images that don't necessarily get put on to a project for months....just because I felt like coloring. Does this happen to you too? Today is an example of this. I give you....Hedwig the Halloween Witch from Rick St. Dennis.

I had colored her with alcohol inks in a color combo that I love. I added some patterned papers...though the turquoise was plain.

I used Dreamweaver StencilsSpider Web. I put some alcohol ink on a felt pad (Cornflower Blue Archival Ink from Ranger to be exact), and applied it directly to the stencil. Then I flipped my once-plain cardstock on to the stencil, and voila! Spider web on paper.

Thanks for checking out my latest make. Hope you like her! Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Have a spook-tacular day!
