A Good and Sparkly Witch - Sherrod Studio Sneak Peak #2

Believe it or not, I've searched Google with regard to photographing glitter. To know avail, however. And thus, you will have to take my word that my witch from Sherrod Studio's new "All Hallow's Eve" set is sparkly and about as cute and sweet as a witch can be.

What a treat it was to see how the design team members who previewed her yesterday colored this image. Surprising, too, was the fact that so many of us had the same general idea. Missing from my card is traditional Halloween orange unless, of course, you consider her red hair. I just wish I'd photographed my card when my coloring appeared all nice and even -before adding the Stickles (painted on with a small, flat brush) to her hat and dress. Sigh. I reiterate you will have to take my word for it.

No Copics for me (yet ...), I used water-base markers. I think everything else explains itself.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Black, Citrus Leaf, Hydrangea, and Breeze cardstock; Black and Juniper ink pads; Hydrangea, Citrus Leaf, Breeze, Autumn Terracotta, Baby Pink, Heavenly Blue, Brown Bag, Goldrush, and Tombow #580 Flesh markers; Sherrod Studio All Hallow's Eve stamp set; Ribbon from my stash; Dove blending pen; Diamond Stickles; #4 shader (flat paintbrush); Cuttlebug w/D'vine Swirl embossing folder and Nestabilities Classic Circles set; 3M foam mounting tape.

Stop back tomorrow for a couple of cards - a fun floral card created with stamps from Friendship Blossoms and a quick Halloween card made with stamps from the All Hallow's Eve set.

In the interim, go check out what design team members Mary V., Sparkle, Leah, Ceal, Joseline, Mary G., Dawn, Kelly, Kim, and Sherrod Studio created today.

I survived Monday and am looking forward to a busy Tuesday. Summer has arrived in Minnesota with temperatures in the 80s and maybe even the 90s before the end of the week. With the air conditioning set on high, I'm still wearing a sweatshirt. LOL. Hope your week is off to a wonderful start. Thanks for stopping by!!

I can just imagine how pretty and sparkly she is in real life! Too bad it doesn't show in photos, but I believe you! LOL I like the "non-traditional" colors, too.

Although, I still think it's way early to be seeing Halloween cards. I know you gotta do what you gotta do for the team. *Ü*

She's so cute! And you don't use copics!!!? I always assumed you did! Could've fooled me!

I love the non-traditional Halloween colors. I can't take photos to make glitter show up either.

Sparkle said...

She is just precious! I love the purple!

Mary said...

I can see the sparkle in the first picture - it looks great! And I love the background - very nice.

Cute, cute, cute and I don't even like witches, but she really is precious. I know what you mean about water based markers. I have the full set of CTMH markers, but can't stand using them. They cause the paper to get waterlogged. I need to find someplace that sells Copic's in the small sets and at a decent price. I like buying products at Cut@home, but they don't have the small sets of Copics. Let me know if you find a supplier online. I picked up a couple of the Copics at our Hobby Lobby, but you never know if they have been opened and played with because they aren't sealed.

She does too look sparkly!!! Love that witch. The colors you used are too fun.
I actually caught a glint on my sparkly card by taking the pic outside....but it was pure luck LOL
Have a great evening Kathi

A cute and sparkly witch. Love it!

I need to know more about the Dove blending pen. I own one -- but hmm, not sure of its use. Off to google.
