Spotlight Flowers

I made this card last month at Dragonflies and Dreams. I really like how the flowers are popped up and bordered by the black... it makes their subtle colors even prettier and more delicate looking.

Josephine the Gypsy

Meet Josephine....
I had to have this cute gal when I saw her ... especially since she bears my middle name!!

She is so pleased with herself and her love potion, and can you blame her?

The background paper is wrapping paper and was pearly white with black flocking, and I really wanted to have pink, so I swiped a pink ink pad across the paper until it was the color I wanted.
I put the same pad to use and sponged the edges to give it a slight distressed look.

She is colored with prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits. I put a bit of glitter on each of the gold coins on her belt and skirt edge and also on the hearts for the potion.

I glittered the pink flower embellishment to tie everything together.

Here is some love to share with you all!!

Halloween in May?

Why not ... it is certainly cool enough!!

I was inspired by a friend so I made this card ... sometimes the smallest things can get my creativity back on track!

I just love the colors and the magical feel of this witch.

The black lace, I coated with glue and dipped in jet black glitter ... very sparkly, but not obtrusive. Also, the diagonal swatch of patterned paper has raised purple flocking on it ... it is not just printed, and the texture is rich and luxurious.

Please enjoy!
