Blank Page Muse: There's a Little Witch in all of us

How cute is this little witch? I know it seems a little early to think about Halloween, but since July's theme for Blank Page Muse is "holidays" I thought I'd start off with a witch card. However, this witch can also be used for many other occasions. It's a cute and happy witch so even a magical birthday sentiment would work. 

  • Stitches Frond Witch Words stamp designed by Stephanie Eaton
  • A6 white card base
  • Watercolor paper cut to 4-3/8"W x 6"H
  • White cardstock cut to 3"W x 4-1/4"H for the background (I used a stitch rectangle die)
  • Black cardstock cut to 3-1/8"W x 4-3/8"H to mat background
  • White cardstock 3"W x 4"H to stamp image
  • White cardstock 2-1/8"W x 1-3/8"H to stamp sentiment
  • Black cardstock 2-1/4"W x 1-1/2"H to mat sentiment
  • Distress Ink or Distress Oxide: Seedless Preserves, Black Soot, Mowed Lawn
  • Ink blending brushes and/or blending tool with foam pad
  • Clouds Stencil
  • Grass Stencil
  • Water spray bottle
  • Coloring medium of choice. I used Copic markers.
  • Your favorite adhesive
  • Foam dots or squares
  • Stamp the witch image and color with medium of choice. I used Copic markers. Colors are listed below the photo.

Copic markers used:
Purple: V17, V15, V12
Green: G09, G05, G03, G00
Orange: YR18, YR15
  • To make the background, first use a cloud stencil and Distress Inks in Seedless Preserves and Black Soot, alternating the colors. Stencil 3/4 of the cardstock.

  • Next, use a grass stencil and Distress Oxide in Mowed Lawn. Make the grass darker in the front than the back.
  • Stamp the sentiment and use the Distress Ink in Black Soot to ink the edges. Adhere it to the black cardstock mat.
  • Using the watercolor paper, ink all of the cardstock except for the center with Distress Ink in Seedless Preserves. Using Black Soot, ink the edges.
  • Remove the water sprayer from the bottle and add some droplets of water onto the watercolor paper. Use a clean paper towel to remove the water so the ink shows the water droplets.
  • Assemble all the card layers to the card base using your favorite adhesive. Add the sentiment with foam squares or dots. 

Thank you for stopping by today. Have a very creative week!
