Witch Mercedes


Hi!  It's Labor Day here so no work for me!  I've had a nice relaxing weekend where I was able to enjoy some time with the small man, do a little reading, AND get a bit of coloring and a couple of cards made.  With the start of September, my thoughts automatically turn to Fall fun and my favorite holiday of the year, Halloween!  Betty of Simply B Stamps has been drawing some wonderful images for her Facebook challenges and this time around she conjured up this sultry witch named Mercedes.  I could not resist and had to play along!  The theme was simple:  use your favorite Halloween colors.  Orange, black, and purple with just a tiny hint of florescent green were my choices.  You can find all the details about the challenge HERE.

Mercedes is colored with Copics.  I have to admit that this was somewhat of a challenge due to all her fine detail.  I tried my hand at "differently hued" hair, and I'm not thrilled with the results, but maybe if I keep practicing it'll click.  No sketch this time, but I really like this layout and may use it again.  I matted the image on the Romantic Rectangles from Spellbinder and added a flourish (cut with the Leaf & Swirl Doohickey from Magnolia), flowers, pearls, and a black feather.  The crow in the cage is a Jolee's Boutique embellishment.  Papers are from the new The Spooky Stack by DCWV.





Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day!

Markers used: Copics (E00, E11, E21, R20, YG11, YG13, N4, N6, N8, V7, V20, Y38, YR00, YR02, YR04, YR07).
