Vintage Witchy!

Happy Wednesday...or in my house we repeat it the Geico commercial way.... Hhhhuuuuuummmmpppp DAY...if you have no idea what I'm talking about...check it out HERE! LOL!  My son can do a spot on impersonation of this that kills me every time ;)

Anywho this is a crazy busy week and I've been very sick with a fever, head cold, ear infections...and the blahs.  But I'm working madly on a bunch of projects to share on this blog and my other blog HERE.  And I have back to school nights, football games, doctor's appts, name it and its probably eating up my productive hours LOL.  If you feel me...say Ohhhh Yeahhhh...cuz its weeks like this that make us stronger, better, more capable people right?  Yeahhhh I don't know about all that!

We are sad to see the MLB baseball season ending and of course my Redskins, not so good .  Seems a lot of the capable NFL teams are struggling this year... Giants, 49ers, Packers...weird, sloppy season.  But I'm also happy that NHL season begins this Caps...rockin' the red.  I'm a DC sports fan...always faithful to all my teams...but some years are GREAT and some not so much. But I keep hopin' and rootin' :)


Vintage Witchy

Isn't this Wee Stamp "Hazel" cute!  Today is "W"ednesday at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog!
Magnolia-licious now carries Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studio, Penny Black and CandiBeans by Little Darlings. Go check them cute!

I've always had a fascination with witches, I love to read books about them, watch movies...just the stories about them, the whole deal I find intriguing.  Pagan practices have a huge history in our world and no not the devil worshipping stuff...pagan beliefs are actually rooted in astrology and very fascinating if you take the time to learn about it.  One of my fave book series is "All Souls Trilogy" by Deborah Harkness..the final book comes out this winter and I cannot wait!

I used papers by Authentique and kept the colors to warm blacks, creams and browns for a more vintage feel.
All the papers got distressed and inked with both dark brown and gray inks.
You know me, I love vintage and distressed and the more TEXTURE the better.
Some burlap, creepy clock die, tulle, dew drops, diamond glaze all work well for me.
The sentiment is from PTI along with the spiderweb stamps.
The beautiful black tulle flower I love...they come in rolls but I clip them apart.

She was colored with TouchTwin Markers.
Marker List will be posted later today...sorry!
Then I added a Gold Liquid Pen on her buckles, clock and necklace.
Diamond Glaze on her shoes, hat band and clock.

Hop on over to the Challenge Blog to see what my DT friends made today as well!
Have a wonderful week everyone!  I'm back on Friday with an SCACD Release!!

  7. Great card Suzanne!
    Love that you coloured her in a grunge way - she sure looks like an old photograph! Crazy clock hands are awesome.
    Big Hugs, Candy

  8. This is gorgeous. We don't celebrate Halloween here in Australia although it is getting more popular. I love this image though and what you have created with it. Just stunning.


  9. STUNNING!!! All of your creations are just wonderful!!! Thinking that I NEED to visit your on line classroom!!!

  10. Gorgeous coloring Suzanne. I love the way you did the dress. Combining the burlap with the grays and blacks is perfect. Those pointy thingees popping out look pretty cool too. So medieval.
    If the Pack could get healthy we would be ok. Redskins too, they just don't look real good right now. Maybe this little witch would be willing to put a magical spell on our teams.

    1. Thanks so much Linda...I love dies I can use in a variety of ways. Makes the purchase feel vindicated LOL! Yup if the Redskins don't win today I may just give up on the season that's how depressed I am about it...still love 'em but dang a few wins would be REAL nice :) Happy Football Sunday!

  11. Wow...your card is fabulous...and I just love this stamp... sooo cute!!!
    Love your coloring and the vintage feeling!!! Congrats!

  12. Fab colouring! Great design! A lovely card, Suzanne! Hugs, Lesley
