Tilda, You're a Cute Little Devil! for Friday Sketchers 75



Gosh, it's Happy Friday again!!! I hope that everyone has had a delightful week and are looking forward to an enjoyable yet productive weekend!! Time is almost here for Halloween and soon we will be staring at the Holiday Season head on. I wanted to make another card using those darling So Spooky Maggies from Magnolia-licious before my time ran out completely!!


This week over on Friday Sketchers we are hosted by the exceptionally talented and creative Claudia who has given us a very fun and interesting sketch to use. We invite you to join with us this week and use the same sketch to be eligible for a prize from Daisy May Designs. Please be sure you link back to Friday Sketchers in your blog post. I will be looking forward to seeing your creations over there!!

For my card, I turned the sketch on its side and used Bazzill CS for the base, PTI True Black and Orange Zest for the matting, Cryogen White for image and jotting spot, and all DP (Black Dot and Halloween Star) are from Magnolia from the So Spooky Collection and is available over at Magnolia-licious. I will share with you that if you have not used the Magnolia papers, you are in for a real treat!! It is so substantial, sews wonderfully, and is so nice to use, especially with our Maggies! All of the papers that I have seen are already distressed/inked on all 4 sides, so I have found that after I cut the paper, my preference is to ink/distress all of the cut sides also before using it. For this card I used Tuxedo Black and white acrylic paint for the cut sides. You will see that I machine stitched all major panels on this card in black.

I also used the little darling Devil Tilda from the So Spooky Collection and she is just the cutest thing!! She was stamped twice, cut out, colored with Copics (shown below), and propped up on dimensional tape. I gave some sparkle to her horns, wings, and pitchfork with Orange Peel Stickles. I then made a rosette with the centerpiece using a seal stamp by Catslife Press which I heat embossed in black. The front was finished with ribbon/bow, jack-o-lantern charm, and orange rhinestones.



For the inside of the card I wanted a flowing feel from one panel to the next because there is such a marked difference in color and design from the black dots to the orange stars papers. I used a darling orange ball and sparkle trim from Suzan which goes from the jotting spot on the second panel to another Jack-o-lantern charm (bunches of thanks, Sharon!!)on the first panel.

These are the Copics I used for this little devil and, as I mentioned above, after coloring her I also used Stickles on her wings, horns, and pitchfork, and dots of Inkessentials opaque white.

Thank you so much for coming by to see me today and you know I love to hear what you think of my creations!!! So please leave me a comment and if you have questions about anything I have done, you know I love to answer those also!! The DT of Magnolia-licious is having a Hop today with "Clean and Simple" cards so drop by to see what is happening there also. I hope you have a fun and safe weekend and please come back to see me again! Maggie hugs from me to you!!!!
