Autumn Witch*

Good morning everyone.. and a very happy and blessed Sunday. I can't believe tomorrow is Monday already! The weekends just go by way too fast. I hope you all have had a great weekend! Yesterday was perfect... lazy Saturday! We watched the free practice and qualifying for the MotoGP bike races. We also got to watch the qualifying for the Australian V8s! A fun day of racing and crafting! I worked on this card yesterday and finished it up this morning. Today should be another day of the same ... crafting and watching the MotoGP and Australian V8 races! :D  And Bailey will be returning from Church Camp this evening.  Have a great one!!

Here is my Autumn card:









For this card I used Pumpkin Witch from Stampz by Star. I love this image! I colored the image with my Copic Markers and I did a bit of layering. I added some white polka dots to the ribbon around her hat. The background was done with pastels. This was my first time using pastels. I think it turned out okay. It was fun using a different median! I did a lot of distressing on the papers. All of the papers are scraps from a couple of years ago except for the Kraft papers. Some of the kraft is from a new sheet and some of it is from scraps. I absolutely loved these autumn papers. I still have enough scraps for a few more cards I think... between all of the papers LOL I'll be sad when they are gone! So, I inked all the edges with black and then distressed all of the patterned papers edges. I added some sequins and a few gems and the two leaf charms at the top. Those I used several colors of Alcohol inks on. I used a bit of ribbon and raffia.  The torn corner and the charms are being held down with brads. Behind the torn paper I added a bit of green tulle. Those leaves are die cuts from My Favorite Things. I cut them out of patterned paper and added black ink to the edges. The "thanks" is a stamp from Paper Smooches. On the inside i used some sequin and raffia.
