A Very Late DICC

Hi, my name is Alison and I have lost my mojo. I have no idea where it went...but I am a little concerned that    it is on summer vacation. I've had a bunch of thing I've wanted/needed to do, but I just can't get them to come to fruition. Which is frustrating on many levels. Granted, I have wanted to take things easy lately, to enjoy my time with the kids as much as possible before school starts, but I feel a little lost when it comes to my crafts right now. I think I know why....but I wish I could just get over what I am bummed about and just move on and start making stuff again. But enough of the sobbing....I managed to finally get my DICC project done, which is really great since a.) we were sponsored by Just Some Lines, and b.) I'm the one that came up with this itinerary. Go me for being a slacker. Here's my itinerary...which I think is a pretty good one, by the way.
Alison's Itinerary
1. Spooky
2. Teal
3. Time (either use a clock or the word)
4. Inked Edges
5. Sketch (find a sketch challenge and use it!)
6. Glitter
7. Animal
8. Use a rubber! (stamp, that is!)
9. Silver
10. Non-craft item

For my card, I used #'s 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, and 8. Not too shabby!

I used Little Witch from Just Some Lines. I thought she was so sweet. And in my never-ending quest to find fabulous Halloween stuff, I knew she would be perfect in my collection. I colored her with my watercolor markers and my Copics.

I didn't blend my colors as much as I normally do. I wanted it to be kind of brushy. Which actually really worked out because of the way I did my background. For that, I used a Tim Holtz screen with an orange Glimmer Mist. I brushed the color on with a fan brush. 

I inked the edges with Distress Ink, I used some Stickles around my Little Witch, and I added my sentiment (from Smeared Ink) for a little bit more teal ('cause you can never have too much teal.). Overall, I think it's sweet...for a Halloween card. Not to bad considering how blah I've been feeling. Though, my family time has been fabulous. Which, really, is the most important thing. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Your creations are really neat. Totally understand about mojo. Whatever you are bumming about, go see a good movie (sometimes even a really good tearjerker) helps. or take the kids and get out, take your mind away and trust me the mojo you got for creating will come back. Hope you feel better soon, just love seeing the next thing you create!

Awwww Alison - you would never know you lost your mojo, girlfriend! This is fabulous, love the way you colored her. And yes, family time IS the most important thing! Smooches! :)
I really love the background on this card. I love the faded colors on the witch too.

Shame about the mojo misplacement, have you checked under the bed. I find dust bunnies usually like to line their nest with it.

I love this creation. The background is FABULOUS, truly FABULOUS!
