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!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
