Best Witches Be With You with a New Challenge at Get Creative

Welcome to the new challenge at Get Creative!!! This is a Challenge Blog with this week's challenge theme - Halloween with the fabulous sponsor being The Fantasy Art of Nikki Burnette!!!!!

I chose to use Riley as my image with her pet cat whom I have named Chloe after my black cat! NOW, this card and image and I have had several words and issues - first my feathers exploded and went everywhere and second, I wasn't exactly pleased with how my image turned out . . . thus the Stickles came out along with the Tim Holtz Distressed Stickles and . . . . it's still missing something - SEW, I played with doing Zentangles and viola, we now have version 3 - and which one do you like???

  • Version 1 Riley was colored with Whispers Markers, Prisma Colored Pencils, gel pen accents with chalked background

  • Version 2 Riley was colored with Whispers Markers, Prisma Colored Pencils, gel pen and Stickles accents with chalked background

  • Version 3 Riley was colored with Whispers Markers, Prisma Colored Pencils, gel pen and Stickles accents with chalked background and Zentangles

  • size A2 card using black Recollection card stock, scraps were used to mount the image and DCWV The Spooky Stack for the background
  • Darice Satin Edged Organza ribbon with witch pumpkin button
  • feathers were added to Riley's hat and "Kitty's" hat
  • Queen & Co black pearl added to hat holding feathers in place
  • sentiment, "Best Witches Be With You" had been part of Create with TLC  September Mega Club or can be found here was chalked around the edges mounted on scraps with purple Recollection card stock using Martha Stewart Border Punch which reminds me of "ooze" or "slime"
