Bewitching Tilda

I'm entering this card into the paperplay for the " A Haunting we will go challenge.

This is my one and only Halloween card that I made for this year which will be hand delivered tomorrow.  I don't usually get too thrilled making cards for this occasion - the desire to dress up and party has disappeared:(

A friend of mine makes booootiful Halloween cards -- but then again, she has all the stamps to fit the occasion ..
My new little Witch Tilda, which can be purchased from Magnolia-licious, came to the rescue.  Diana seems to be sold out of this particular witch, but there are soooooooo many others to chose from and if you ask her nicely, she'll order it for you.

Tilda's been coloured with copics and dusted with perfect pearls to make her "green".  I made this into an easel card, and popped the Martha Stewart punched fence on to stick out from the rest of the card. then added glue and perfect pearls to look like skeletons hanging from the fence posts and glossy accents to the pumpkins to make them glow.
The background paper started out as yellow then I stamped it and started adding orange, purple and black.  The haunted house is a Stampin' Up set, which I have used again and again.
Hope you like it.

Remember, stamp up a storm, ink up a wish - and send it on to brighten someone's day.

Mojo Monday Sketch 161

This may just squeak into the deadline for Mojo Monday Sketch #161 which can be found   here.

I found this little Magnolia  in a garage sale and need a name for her??

Here's hoping someone can identify her and  help me put her in alphabetical order in my case.
I managed to use a couple of sadly neglected items for this card.  Some Designer paper from My Mind's Eye, little mulberry flowers, and a spellbinder's edger.

Sparkle and Glitter Dinner Tilda

I have been working on my little "Tilda" project for about a week, and finally completed her.  The Spellbinders Nestabilities "Labels Seven" available at Lora's (Canadian) online store, which have been in my case for over a year finally got used.

I decided upon an Easel card using iridescent white for the pages and shaded them with Tim Holtz Antique Linen, to give  depth. Dinner Tilda, which is available at Magnolia-licious was coloured with copics: B91; B93; B95; R00; R20; E00; C01; and a white glaze gel pen for the pearls and shoes.  Icy Stickles were used to add some bling to the silk flowers, ribbons, beads and the little flowers inside.  I wrote a very tiny letter on the book page, picturing Tilda writing in her diary while waiting for Edwin to take her out to dinner.

The inside is another Magnolia stamp available at Magnolia-licious. I used the EK Success punch for the scrolls and flowers and Martha Stewart's Sunburst border punch for the sentiment and for the outside decorations, distressing the edges with SU Pretty in Pink.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
"Totally Tilda  Glitter and Sparkle Challenge #6" 
" Mojo Monday Sketch 159"
"Secret Crafter Challenge #103", which happens to be an easel card challenge
"Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #79" - Layer it on!

Hope you like it, and will take the time to leave  a comment - it is always enjoyable knowing that someone appreciates the work they see.
