Ist DT post for Jiggery Makery Designs !

 
Hi everyone! Here is my first DT post for Jiggery Makery Designs. Owned by Adele Bradshaw, she designs lovely digi images.
She sent this one for this DT project - Tess the witch.
Once I downloaded the image I imported it into Craft Artist so that I could resize it, I made the image A5. Easy peasy to resize.
I printed the image onto white card, then I coloured it using watercolour pencils.
I know she's a witch but I think she has done all of her witchy duties & is off out to a party so I coloured her dress a lovely orange, with shoes to match.
Once the watercolours had dried I figured she was in need of a little sparkle so added some stickles to her dress & hat.
I think you can just about see the shimmer in this close up photo - you can also see the lovely detail Adele puts into her images.


I cut around the image leaving a small white margin. Adhered her to some black card & cut out leaving a small black margin.
I made the 4 step card from some purple/grey card. I used some ripped copy paper as a template & inked around the card using some burgundy ink - trying to give the impression of clouds.
Cut a moon out of some grey card.
Stamped the hallowe'en sentiment onto black card using flitter glue & applied some copper foil. Wrote the party sentiment usingmy Zig pen & applied the copper foil to this.
Cut out some black squares to cover the steps & applied a couple of bats & some more foiled writing.
Adhered Tess to the card using foam pads. Used foam pads on the sentiments.
Thought it needed just a little more so drew a couple of spiders & their webs on a couple of the corners.
Adele does some great designs - check out the Jiggery Makery Blog where there is a link to her Etsy shop. She also has a Jiggery Makery Facebook page.
There is also an insight into how she designed Tess the witch on the blog.Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs,
