A sweet little witch card ~ inspired by a Vera Lane Studio image

Hi everyone! Have you ever seen a cuter witch that this one from the Wee Witches digi set by Vera Lane Studio? I absolutely had to colour her and have her star on a Halloween card. She makes me smile and that's always a good thing.

I coloured Wee Hattie with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils and fussy cut her leaving a narrow white border. She was then matted with black cardstock, and fussy cut a second time leaving a narrow black border. Foam tape was attached to the back of her to pop her up and add a natural shadow.

The base of the card is white and a black mat was cut from dotty embossed cardstock. A rectangle of orange patterned paper was cut to fit inside the black mat with a strip of the reverse side, a green stripe, peeking out the right side. To ground Hattie, a torn piece of plaid patterned paper was matted with black and placed along the bottom edge of the orange layer. A strip of Halloween washi tape adhered to white cardstock was placed where Hattie would stand.

The saying was printed onto white cardstock, matted with black, then purple, then black again. It was popped up on foam tape like Hattie was. She was surrounded by three die cut bats cut from black cardstock. A simple black border drawn with a ruler framed the card to complete the project.

Thanks for joining Hattie and me today. We love when you do that! Be sure to pop by the Vera Lane Studio Etsy shop to see Hattie's sister, Hettie, and all their other Halloween friends. Our Facebook group is also a lovely place to hang out and be inspired! Hope to see you there!

Life is good; so is art.
