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!

Certainly gorgeous coloring! I never just color. Wish I had the time but I'm always on some deadline for a project. Love how you've pieced the background together. Beautiful work! xxD
Beautiful coloring and I love the way you've used the spiderweb stencil--a great technique I'm gonna have to try!

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!
