Darling Witchy Tilda at Friday Sketchers 118
A very happy Friday to everyone!!! Gosh, thank you so much for dropping by and the wonderful news is that after today I am down to only 6 more radiation sessions...You all have made it so much easier with your kind comments and happy thoughts!!! I am a bit burned by all of the microwaves BUT soon it will be over!!! And then we can really PLAY!!!!! I know you are all prepared for an exciting weekend and for those of you who will have a long holiday weekend, I hope it is a very safe and enjoyable one for you and yours!! Happy Labor Day!!!
Today is the 118th challenge of Friday Sketchers and we have a wonderful treat to be hosted by the phenomenally talented and creative Inge of the Netherlands who has provided us with a fun and exciting sketch. I hope you will come over and check out the splendid DT Sample Cards and will decide to join with us this week using this exceptional sketch so that you will be in the running for a delightful prize from Motivet.
For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is PTI, and the DP is all from the Blackbird collection by Memory Box, which was part of my recent birthday gift from Lucas and Niklas, the darling sons of my sweet friend Claudia. Thank you to you two sweeties!!!! All major panels were machine stitched. The darling Witch Tilda was stamped on Cryogen White and colored with Copics and a touch of peach Spica. This little beauty is from Magnolia-licious and although she is not available she is up for pre-order so you better be thinking about those Halloween cards right away!!! Time flies when we are having so much fun!!! And I tell you, even things on pre-order can get sold out completely in the blink of an eye!!! I used a MS spider web punch for the vertical on the card...and the horizontal is all from Bonnie's awesome shop at Really Reasonable Ribbon (RRR). I used a combination of 1.5" Jute Ribbon Black, Jute Ribbon Orange, and Jute String Orange. RRR has so many Halloween ribbons that you will be amazed at the selection and even more amazed at the fabulous customer service!! I added several stickled black and orange flowers onto a base of MS punched twigs, a stamped TH Happy Halloween ticket, a spider web charm, and half pearls from RRR. The ticket was lifted in the center by rolling the stamped image around a Copic to give it so much more dimension before adhering the ends to the card.
For the inside of my card I used the same orange jute ribbon and string on the first panel to attach a smiling face Jack-o-lantern charm. On the jotting panel I used a several layers of orange and black flowers from Crafty Feeling (which were included in one of my monthly selections) to make a statement flower centered with a Basic Gray glazed spider web button and resting on more MS punched twigs.
NOTE: I was unable to participate in the challenge blog over at RRR this week BUT this card of mine qualifies now!!!! Hey we all use ribbon and we all use flowers!!! So there is a wonderful challenge over at Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog which will run until September 14. So think about it and submit your next card with flowers and ribbon so that you can win one of two very nice prizes available!! We would love to have you participate along with us!!!!
I hope you like my little creation and will be able to join us at Friday Sketchers this week. We would love to see your card using Inge's marvelous sketch!! Please visit each of the Sassy Sketcher Girls' blogs and let them know what you think of their magnificent creations!!!
