Sister Act Challenge # 26

Another Friday, which means a new anything goes challenge at the Sister Act Challenge Blog.  We have two sponsors  Digi Darla Designs and QKR Stampede and that means two winners will be chosen!

I'm using a Dilly Beans image for my card this week.  This one is called Candy Witch Framed (#241).  I actually had a hard time coloring her hat.  I think it was because I had to jump from a C5 to a C9.  I tried to create the mid-color by inking my C5 with the C9. I was working on fast drying paper, and the hat is a bit big for that technique.

The black patterned papers are oldies from My Mind's Eye.  There are lots of details that my camera didn't pick up.  I used Crystal Effects on the candy to give it dimension and make it shine.  Sequins are in the center of each of the circles on the orange paper. Stickles adorn the white circles behind the witch as well as her hat band and eye lids.  The words are printer generated using the Courier New font and doodled around to create rectangles.  The idea is a CASE from Dilly Bean's artist, Megan Suarez.

I created three different versions, trying a little something different with the shading on each.  This one has the light coming from the upper left.  I ended up using my white gel pen to create highlights.  Keep an eye out for me to post one of the other versions in the coming weeks.

I'll have two extra posts this week - one is for Color Me Creative on the 29th and another post on October 2nd.  I'm part of a Blog Hop for Operation Write Home.  Hope you'll stop back.
