Witchy Woman


What better way to celebrate my birthday than by making a card for my favorite holiday!  Tickled Pink Stamps is sponsoring Creative Inspirations this week and the theme is "ANYTHING GOES"!  So of course I opted to create something Halloween!

I chose Lil Haunts Witch Lylah as my image.  I remembered that I had these cool Martha Stewart Elegant Witch coasters in my crafty stash.  I also happened to have the matching Elegant Witch paper mat stack!  Perfect!  I colored Lylah with Copics and fussy cut her (no easy feat as this image has lots of thin, delicate areas).  Here is a closer look at my witchy woman:


I created a "frame" for her with the Spellbinders Nestabilities Fleur de Lis and Classic Squares.  A little cheesecloth behind her gives her some definition against the busy background paper.  I really went a little crazy with the embellishments, also adding pearls, flowers, a doily, and a Magnolia Doohickey die cut swirl.


But I like the look of the finished card and think the cluttered chaos works perfectly for this bewitching lady!

Please head over to the Tickled Pink Stamps blog to see what the other talented {PINK} gals have created for this challenge!  Then play along yourself for your chance to win a fabulous TPS prize!

I'm off to enjoy my yummy chocolate birthday cake!  Hope your day was as special as mine!  Thanks for the visit and please know that all your lovely comments are always greatly appreciated!

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, R20, Y32, Y35, Y38, YG91, YG93, W4, W6, W8, W10). 

I'd also like to enter this card in the following challenges:
- The Crazy Challenge: #126-Black, White, and 1 Other (yellow)
Whoopsie Daisy: Die Cuts and/or Punches
