Bewitching Tilda

Evening, FIRST - Scroll below this post if you have come over to view the SNB Blog Hop. It's the next one!!

Second,  I can't believe I got this done tonight! Lucky me, I have been pretty much out of commission for the entire weekend. I started getting a bit of a twitch in my back on Friday night....by Saturday afternoon, I pretty much couldn't do anything. But of course, being a mom I did!!! Well, I am paying for it today! Worst part I had a craft day planned with my stamping friend, Lisette! We'll have to get together another day.  It took me all day of doing a little at a time, because I can't just sit, to get my little tilda done, but I did get one done and I like how she turned out. The picture didn't come out great. I think it looks way better in person. I sprayed the entire card with Pearl Glitter Mist, so with the light it kinda washed her out.







Tild is colored with Copic markers. The papers are from My Minds Eye. On the inside of the card I used a spider web punch from EK Success. I distressed the edges of everything, because thats just what I do!!! I didn't have any black flowers, but no worries, I just made some rolled flowers. I like them. I think they kinda looked spooky - goes with the Halloween theme nicely.  Instead of using leaves, I used some raffia. The hatpin was made by my mom. She gets upset because I don't wear the jewelry that she makes. It's not that it is not nice, it's just not my style. So she was pretty excited when I asked her to make me some hatpins. She will be especially happy when she sees that I actually used one in a card!! haha

The sentiment was handmade. Ok...so I wanted it to looked distressed and old, well It looked good, then I kept messing with it, so it looks crappy instead. But, it is what it is.......I will grow to like it! lol  I picked up the lace at JoAnns. Cut out my little Witch Tilda and pop dotted her.

Thats about all!
