A "Wicked" Witch

I love this new digital witch from Whimsy Doodles! She reminds me so much of my friend Danielle (although Danielle would tell me she needs to be a round woman!) Dani is a member of "The Wicked Pixies" (our Ren-faire booth name that I stole for my blog) and she has her own business called "The Red Witch" (she makes custom hats, like wizard or princess hats.) So this witch is dressed in red and has red hair in honor of Danielle.

I made a frame for her to be popped up on by taking the guide off of a fancy corner punch and punching repeatedly around the square of black. I hand snipped any area that was still connected afterward. It is difficult to make it nice and straight (for me it was impossible!) but I don't think it really detracts too much in this case. And the frame really is on the purple base straight, but the angle of the picture makes it look mounted crooked! I used a clear Spica glitter pen on her hat so it is sparkly and her glasses have crystal effects on them to mimic real glasses. The sentiment (which also came with the witch) was cut out with an oval Nestability and sponged with several purple inks. I then rubbed a little gold stickles over it.

The Details:
Stamps: Witchy Girl - Whimsy Doodles
Paper: DCWV, Elegant Eggplant, Basic Black, PTI White
Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20
Hair: E02,E07,E09,E18
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Pale Plum, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant
Misc: Fiskars Corner Punch, Spica Clear Glitter Pen, Crystal Effects, Gold Stickles, Oval Nestabilities, Red Rhinestone Stickers

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day!
