Alison the Witch from Tiddly Inks


Greetings! Today I am sharing a project with you that features Alison the Witch from Tiddly Inks. She is my favorite image from Tiddly Inks (though I LOVE so many!). Why? Well, you may have read this story before, but this particular image was actually made for me by Christy Croll, owner and artist of Tiddly Inks. I won a contest several years ago, and I got to give Christy some design cues on what I wanted the image to look like. And this image is just perfect! I use her whenever I can.

I colored Alison with my Zig Clean color markers, using some of my favorite colors. She was stamped on to Canson Mixed Media Paper, which is my favorite to use with these markers. I had plans on adding all sorts of layers and embellishments for this card, but as I was making it, my direction totally changed. That's one of the fun things about creating things though, right? Seeing how your original idea morphs into a new one? Love that.

So you'll notice that this photo is a little dark. But that's because I wanted you to see the FANTASTIC Nuvo Blue Crush Glow Drops that I used around the witch. These drops are so bright in low and no light. I thought they added a bit of magic to the card. My background was made by smooshing a combination of Dylusions Sprays and Fireworks! Sprays from Imagine. I also added some satin ribbons for some additional sheen.

The card is simpler than I had anticipated, but I think it works. Sometimes it's nice to let them image do most of the talking, instead of having a ton of layers and "fluff." Although cards like that can be lots of fun too! Thank you so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
