Witch You Were Here

Hi there and welcome!
I hope your week is going well for you so far.  Yesterday was a busy day for me - I'm trying to get caught up on all my deadlines for the month of October so that I can spend some time with my grands later this month.  Right now my craft corner looks like a Halloween tornado just hit! With Halloween just around the corner, I have orange, purple and black paper everywhere along with glitter, pumpkins, goblins and spiders (thankfully those spiders and goblins are fake)!

So, stay tuned because I have lots of fun Halloween cards and treats to share with you in the coming days. I also managed to sneak in a "because I wanted to card".  You know...the card that you didn't make for a challenge, Design Team post or last minute card for some occasion.  The kind of card that you make just because you want to...

Okay, this one of those cards I wanted to make because I wanted to practice with my Copic markers and because I have had this stamp for awhile and I really wanted to play with it!

I still have so much to learn with my Copics and I find myself cringing a bit if I look at this card for too long...lol!  I just cannot seem to master the technique of coloring skin and hair, especially long, dark, wavy hair...sigh. I do see improvement in my work and I hope with that with continued practice, I can actually produce a card that doesn't make me cringe!

Here's a list of materials I used for this card:
* Printed paper - October Afternoon
* Stamp - La La Land
* Sentiment - Pink By Design
* Ribbon - Ribbon Boutique
* Copic Markers
* Martha Stewart Glitter

And there's my "because I wanted to card!  Thanks for letting me share with you!  Now I have to get busy finishing up my DT projects and Blog Hop projects. Then I need to tackle this messy craft corner of mine!  I hope you have a wonderful day and I'll be seeing you soon.....

Until next time,
