Blingy Witch

Did you think I was gone? I didn't know if I was ever going to find time to make a card but finally today I stole a few minutes. This was created for the Our Creative Corner challenge to use bling. And I've been yearning to color this fabulous witch. So, I created this card with "magic bling exhaust fumes" spewing out from behind her!

These little stars were a RAK from Anemone (Thanks Kelly!).

To create that night sky, I first cut those two angled cuts into my Whisper White cardstock and stuck them to my sticky Cricut mat to hold them in place while I inked (see my cut then ink technique here). Note: I left those two gaps open when the pieces were on the mat. Next I cut out a "moon" circle of Soft Sky cardstock and held into into position on the Whisper White cardstock pieces and lightly traced around it with a pencil. I then removed the Soft Sky "moon" and set it aside for later. With sponges, I inked around that "moon" pencil line using swirling motions and blending the colors together where they met. Starting at the center of the moon, I used Soft Sky, then Cool Carribean, Pacific Point, Night of Navy and finally black. Finally, I added my bling and adhered my "moon" and witch to the Green Galore cardstock.

PS: My friend Janette has dubbed me "Queen of the Scene". I really liked that title but have been chicken to use it (wondering if I'm up to it). So, let me take a deep breath and have some guts and try this again.....
