Alicia K's "Feel the Magic"

Alicia K has drawn the cutest Halloween set this month "Feel the Magic", with this adorable witchie and cute little props for her to hold in either hand, you will love it! Today I have her riding the broom, I thought it would be fun to suspend her in front of a cut circle, using Classic Circle Nestabilities, for a perfect (and easy!) moon backdrop. Stamped bats in the background are from Gina's "Spooky Silhouettes". Greeting is framed with the new "Fancy Tag" dies, they look totally magical with the punched large Flourishes (Green Apple) to match! Isn't that greeting fun?! "Witch way", hee hee!

Here's a closeup. She's colored with Copics, I used C-3, C-5 and C-7 to shade her hat, and added some stripes to her stockings with a pen. Punched stars are Pumpkin Spice, accented with adhesive nail heads, mat and base are Moonlit Fog and Black Onyx. Instead of masking the broom I just cut it out, ten cut the handle in half and ahdered one half to either side of her leg like she is sitting on it.


I sponged some Memento London Fog all over the inside to create shadows for the moon when you look at it from the outside. Pumpkin is popped up. As you can see here, her silhouette from the inside is all black: before cutting I adhered my stamped image on white paper to the black so that when I trimmed her out she would be black on the back side. This carries the silhouette theme to the inside. Pop dots are hidden under the broom and hat. My original plan was to hang her from some jump rings so she would swing back and forth, but...this was much easier LOL!
