Sitting Witch Tilda And A New Challenge At Simply Magnolia.

Good morning, crafty bloggers.
I hope you are well?
I am having so much fun experimenting with my new photo soft cube. The photographs of my creations are heaps better. No more annoying light either side of the cards which was driving me mad due to the fact I only had little work top space in the Kitchen to achieve a decent amount of light on my cards. I am very pleased with my purchase which was a recommendation from Gina's husband Phil who's photography of Gina's cards are absolutely stunning. Thanks Phil for all the tips etc. I will be a pro in no time at all. Lol!!!
Now, on to our challenge which starts today at Simply Magnolia
Our challenge theme for the next two weeks is;
Black & White plus one other colour.
I used black, white & green.
Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is Magnolia-licious with a surprise package for one lucky winner!

I have made a Halloween card.

I used Sitting Witch Tilda from the So Spooky Collection 2009.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using a Lifesyle Quickutz nesting frame #10.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.

For my shaped card I used Quickutz nesting frame #10 and Papermania Bexley black capsule collection papers.
Other dies used are La- La - land heart doily border, Cheery Lynn french pastry doily and pine branches. Marianne Designs clock, Doohickey lovely fence and Spellbinders beaded circle.
I have inked all the dies with Memento black ink.
The lace and pearls across the bottom of the card are from The Ribbon Girl and Live & love Crafts.
The witching hour sentiment is a freebie from Birdscards I have matted it onto a Spellbinders beaded circle.

Here is a close up of the smaller Marianne Design clock with the hands set at midnight.
The pumpkin and bat charms are from Bunny Zoes. I tied a bow with a piece of green embroidery thread through the top of the pumpkin  and brushed white modelling paste to both charms.

Here is a closer look at the arrangement. I used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and 
The Ribbon Girl.

A close up of Sitting Witch Tilda. I love her lots and lots.
I have used a Inkssentials opaque white pen to dot Tilda's cheeks and adhered a few 3mm white pearls around her.

Here is the card inside.
The sentiment is also from Birdscards I have printed the sentiment onto Neenah cardstock and cut it out using a Spellbinders stately circle.

 I thoroughly enjoyed colouring and making this card.

We would love you to come and join in with our challenge.
My teamies have designed some gorgeous creations. Why not pop on over for a peek?
