Day 7 of 31 Days of Halloween: Miss Star Witch

Hello again! It's time for a new challenge with A Day for Daises, and thankfully, it ties right into the 31 Days of Halloween. Now, along with this post, I also am participating in a fabulous hop between Imagine and Echo Park. To check out that post, please click HERE.

The theme for ADfD this month is "Anything Halloweeny Goes!" Sweet. So I worked with Miss Star Witch to create a 6x6 mini page with a vintage feel.

I know, I know...it's not creepy. I'm sorry.....but I do like the end result. I used 3 colors of Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush to color the witch and her kitty in. Then I added some Distress Inks and Memento inks on top to age the image further.

Now, remember how I mentioned that Imagine/Echo Park Blog Hop? Well, I wanted to give a nod to that hop, so you'll notice that the die cut that I used on this card, is the same on that I used on the card for the hop. Plus, I dabbed 2 GORGEOUS Delicata  (Shimmery Silver and Celestial Copper) inks on top of it, so it looks like a metal embellishment now.

My sentiment is from Stampendous, and is called Witching You. I stamped it with Black Shimmer Delicata ink and used the small "V" Fitted Frame (Set A), also from Stampendous. More ink. I added faux stitching with Tuxedo Black irRESISTables Pico Embellish around the edge. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar, as well as the Echo Park blog hop with Imagine. Thanks for stopping by,, have a bewitching day!

What a fun card. I did notice how you used the doily die cut from the Imagine hop. Love the Delicata inks on it, too. The image is sweet and perfect for Halloween.

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "

Dream Big: Imagine Collaboration with Joy Clair

Hello! The Artists in Residence for Imagine had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with Joy Clair. They sent us some fabulous stamps, and I really love them. The stamps have such beautiful details, and there are many many options within each set. I chose to work with the Dream Big Clear Stamp Set. It features a big dream catcher with feathers and beads that you can place as you wish.  It's linework is so fine, that I knew that VersaFine ink would be the perfect ink for these stamps. But first, I chose to spritz some Fireworks! on to my watercolor paper. I focused on keeping the color up where I would place the dream catcher later. After the Fireworks! dried, I inked up the hoop of the dream catcher and stamped it out. Then I "built" the rest of the dream catcher using the beads and feathers that are also in the set. It was so much fun to create the rest of the piece. After I was happy with the beads and feathers, I drew a "string" with a PITT pen
