Day 20 of 31 Days: Rick St. Dennis Witch

Greetings! It's Day 20 f the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. Today I am sharing a project with you that I won during last year's 31 Days. It's from Rick St. Dennis, who recently started a challenge blog. I am entering this card into his 2nd challenge which is Sweet or Spooky Halloween. I guess I went with a bit more sweet than spooky this time around.

I love this sassy witch's outfit. And her crooked broom is wonderful. I colored her with watercolor markers and Copics. The blue background is done with watercolors. 

She was a lot of fun to color. But I feel bad for her frightened-looking kitty! I used a doily that I cut up and sprayed with Black Gold Glimmer Mist. I thought it added a pretty element and some nice texture. 

I used some black Stickles too, and my sentiment is from Inkadinkado. I have a few more images from Rick St. Dennis that I hope to get on to a project before the 31 Days is up...but I am running short on days! Now it's time for you to hop along to the rest of the Wicked Bloggers. They are all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!

Totally awesome, I truly love your coloring on this and the black dots, and your blue water color BG, and the doily. Cool looking happy Halloween stamp too!
I too am concerned for the kitty! Maybe he was momentarily surprised by her awesomeness! She is colored so vividly and masterfully!

Kitty is fine-he was just alarmed at being held us by his handle for a flash photo-I myself would never hold a cat that way but I am not a BRATTY LITTLE WITCH-thanks for making my image look so great

Oh, this is very cute! She does look like she would be loads of fun to color! I bet her cat is one of the rare cats who likes be held by his tail (I had a cat like that once - he loved to be lifted up off the floor by his tail!Not all the way off the floor, but so his back feet lifted off). Great card though, lots of fun to look at!

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.
