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!

Hi Alison, Love your card. Your witch is looking unperturbed by kitty's discomfort isn't she. Fabulous colouring as I have come to expect from you. Thank you for sharing this with us at Sparkle and Glitter with RSD

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
