Witch Way

So I had this crazy idea.

Copic Marker Norge decided to do a Halloween themed inspirational post. I couldn’t really think of anything to make for it and almost gave up. Then I went onto Etsy and browsed for Halloween Digital Stamps. After a bit of scrolling I found an image by Molly Harrison Art, called Witch Way, that I decided I could try. I then proceeded to print it in 12cm x 12cm and slowly started colouring the entire card! Trust me to do this the day before the deadline when I had never coloured the image, or something of that size before…

I coloured it all with Copics and drew in the moon, sky and tree as I went along. The squiggly lines in the sky are for some reason a lot more prominent in the photo than on the actual card. Oh well.. can’t win them all…

Anyway. I think it turned out alright. Perhaps there will be more colour only cards in the future…

Let’s have another photo, too, because… why not?!

Shy violet and frustration-inked background

Have you ever been so stuck on a card that you have fuzzy cut it twice? Once with a border and once without? And then been so frustrated on what to do with the actual that you’re almost just throwing away the image? Well this happened to me, on this card. It’s possible because it is yellow. I am not very good with yellow. So how did it end up as a card?

Well… I got out one of my copic refill ink bottles and just tossed some ink down on the blank card, then I got a cotton pad which I poured more ink on and just rubbed it on the white background. And there we go. It wasn’t supposed to be pretty, or planned, or anything. In fact I liked how it just showed my frustration somewhat, hahaha. I made a sentiment text and printed it out and layered it between the inked background and the coloured image.

A perfectly reasonable way to react when you cannot think of what to do, right? haha. I really quite like it, though, and I will definitely do more cards like it. Although… it will be more intentional next time! Maybe I should do a tutorial on it then…

And the image? That is Shy Violet by Tiddly Inks. The card is for the new Tiddly Inks anything goes challenge. Come join in, will you?
