Birgitta Witch

Happy Halloween!  
I really like the Swiss Pixies from C.C. Designs.  Here is the sweet 'witch' Birgitta, that I made for my nephew's daughter.


     I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black on Bella card stock so that I could use my copic markers. I don't have a lot of colours, and I`m still in the learning stages with the various blending techniques.
     After I stamped  Birgitta,  I masked her and then stamped the bench. The pumpkins were stamped individually as I wanted to be able to place them on the card separately. Once the colouring was finished , the images were cut out and applied to the background card stock. I used a nestabilities die to cut the background and then sponged it with Autumn Terracotta.
The black card stock has been embossed with the Swirls Cuttlebug folder. I thought it would look like a night time scene!I
     The little black gingham bow was embellished with two hanging `tiny tags` from Stampin`Up.  I also used my glitter pen to add some sparkle to Brigitta`s wings, the spider webs on her outfit and the pumpkins. Finally the green card base was used  to lightened up the overall look. `Happy Halloween`was stamped on the inside.
