Little Witchie-Poo With Her Broom
Happy Saturday everyone!! I hope that everyone is "weller" than I have been these past several days...it has not been fun at all!! But it has also been chilly and drizzly so I guess it was a good time to stay in bed and just hope that I made it to my next wake up...lol
So I am pretending that today is Friday because I have my Friday Sketchers card for yesterday for you today!
The hostess for Friday Sketchers 73 is the marvelously talented Beatrix from Germany who has given us a very inspirational sketch this week. I hope that you will join with us this week in using Bea's sketch and will let us see your interpretation. Admittedly the sketch was difficult for me because I thought I had to rip papers---which I did!! This is the first time that I have even considered doing that and it was DIFFICULT!!!! I also made a square card rather than a rectangular one...that may tell you something about my brain...not sure...lol
I have used the most darling Little Witch With Broom from the Fall Collection at Belles 'n Whistles. These stamps are designed by the inimitable Elizabeth Bell and are wonderful to work with. They are deeply etched, highly detailed, foam-mounted and die-cut, ready for immediate use with acrylic block. This little witch, Lydia, just looks like she is trying to decide whether to take her broom out trick or treating...tooooooo cute!!!!
I used Bazzill for the base, SU CS for all matting and BG Eerie for all DP. Witchie-Poo was stamped 3 times on Cryogen White, colored with Copics and 2 of them were cut out so that I could add a bit of dimension to her.I used the MS punch for the image panel and a German scrap witch in the upper corner. We wouldn't want little Lydia flying around by herself!! I also grounded the sweet witch with a little bit of Autumn FlowerSoft. Everything else that I added to the entire card are from the October bloom kit from the lovely Jayne at Crafty Feeling in the UK--ribbon, blooms, pins, dew drops, charms, die cuts, felt pumpkin. Thanks, Jayne, for coordinating this kit so well for me!!!!
I hope that you have enjoyed this little card and will meander over and check out the other little darlings at Belles 'n Whistles and will also take time to meet the very friendly and talented DT members on the Belles 'n Whistles blog. Thank you so much for visiting me...I love to hear from you!! May you have a magnificent weekend...Big hugs for each of you!!
