Get Your Witchy On: Tess the Witch Card!!

        Hey everyone, it's Elina here with a Design Team project for the Jiggery Makery blog! I created a simple Halloween card featuring one of Adele's beautiful images, Tess the Witch. If you've been following my blog, you'll know that this image was the first one I featured when I became a Jiggery Makery DT member. It was nice to be able to work with "Tess" again. I decided to revisit that first card and change it up a bit.
If you would like to check out the original card, just click the link: Tess the Witch Card!!.
                                   And here's the pic of the revamped card for you to check out:

The card measures 5 1/4" x 6 1/2," with a sheet of black card stock as the card base.
I cut a sheet of white card stock to 5" x 6 1/4" and inked the background using "Night of Navy" and "Elegant Eggplant" Stampin Up ink pads.
These two colors are perfect for creating a night sky.
For the moon, I punched out a 2" circle to mask it off before inking.
Next, I wanted to create a tree line along the bottom, and, to achieve this I used my C07, and C08 markers to draw in some simple tree shapes.
I added a few highlights to the tree tops using a white gel pen.

Once the background was dry, I removed the mask to work on the moon.
First I went around it with a pigment white ink pad to add a ghoulish glow.
I then colored in the right side of the moon using my C0 and C02 markers, adding craters.
I colored in the entire circle using my Y00 marker and 0 colorless blender. I then added Crystal Stickles to the entire surface to make it sparkle.
After that, I adhered it to the card front using my tape runner.
I colored Tess in using my alcohol markers.
Here's a quick rundown of the colors I used:
-Skin- FS9, Dusky Pink, R20
-Hair- E70, E74, E79
-Dress- V20, V22, V25
-Hat- C04, C06, C08
-Broomstick- Y00, Y13, Y15, E70, E74, E79

I added a decorative swirl pattern to the dress using my Spica Black Glitter pen.
I fussy cut the image out and adhered her to the card front using foam tape.

To finish the card off, I found this sassy sentiment, "Get Your Witchy On" on Pinterest.
I thought this was the perfect sentiment to go along with this image and here's the link for you to check out:
I typed it out on my computer, cut the words apart and arranged them on the card front.

And ta-da!! Card complete!!

I hope you enjoyed this project for today!!
