Lorelei Is Brewing...

..up some trouble. I think it can't be too bad, 'cause she is too cute to be one of those nasty "Witch of the West" types. I made this card for the monthly Dirty Dozen/Alumni challenge. This month it was all about no layers and required masking. Also no pink was allowed.

I figured there would be quite a few light-colored cards in the grouping to allow for coloring, so I chose to go green. A perfect witchy color, I think. The images are from my new Witch's Brew set. Even though the card is green, I colored with my Copic Sketch markers, which gave a nice subtle coloring to this. I also highlighted areas with my Spica glitter pens. Of course it looks much nicer IRL (don't they all?). I used my Martha Stewart border punch, as I thought it looked really cool with the bubbles from the brew. I also used Crystal Effects to add shine and dimension to the bubbles. My Horizonal Slot punch was used to help with my ribbon treatment. Of course it would only reach the one side, so I made a template to for the other side...and trimmed it out with my hobby blade. The awesome ribbon was purchased at Lindsey's store.

Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope I didn't offend anyone by posting a witch today. It's all in good fun, and that's all.

I love the green glow, Rose Ann! It's almost as though she overcooked her brew a little -- tee hee! Not a scary witch at all. She'd be good for children's cards.
