Best Witches


Which Witch is Which is the theme at Craft Your Passion this week.So you must have a witch image on your project…the question is…is she good or is she bad?!We have the fabulous A Day for Daisies as our sponsor.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

For my card I’ve used the super cute Miss Star Witch from A Day for Daisies.She’s been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers.Because she’s such a sweet looking gal I didn’t want to make a traditional Halloween card.So I opted to create a pretty card around her.I must confess I bought these gorgeous papers back at the beginning of Summer and have only used them on one card before 😮 I just can’t bring myself to cut them up!I love them too much!Do I need help?Gonna have to face the fact that they will go out of fashion (some have chevron patterns) and I’ve really got to use them.Anyway,I added some of this fabulous web ribbon,think spiderwebs here,and some black gems for a more Halloweeny feel.I kind of cheated with the ribbon as it doesn’t run the entire length of the strip.It seemed such a waste to obscure such a thing of beauty so I cut two short pieces and gave the illusion that it runs behind the image.This certainly seems a case of the more you read the worse it gets!LOL But there is method in my madness as it now means I have more to play with 🙂 I sometimes do this with favourite papers/cardstock too.Maybe there is just no hope for me!!

    Hey Lisa! What a fun, upbeat witch card! Love the colors and your paper choices. I do sympathize with your paper hoarding … I have so many scraps that I just can’t give up – and I find your tip to make it “look” like it goes behind the other paper strip a great idea – thanks!
