Happy Howl-O-ween Divas- I'm thrilled you stopped by today! I would like to share with you my new Witch-Spaniel Digi Set. My inspiration for this set came from nephew's Cocker Spaniels- Archer, Aria and Woodhouse. The Halloween spirit "moved" me and I hope it moves you too! Come along as this cute pup puts a spell on you....

To begin- divide your sheet into 2 halves. Size your main image 5-1/2"x4-1/4" and place about 1/2" from the bottom of the page. Draw a circle about 1-1/4" and place about 3/4" from the hat. Place your sentiment in the moon if you wish.
Copy and paste on the second half of the page. You will need both images.
This is actually a fairly simple card, just multiple steps in the coloring.
Color your images as desired; I used COPIC® Markers. Color both images. FYI- The base image I did not detail as much as the image to top with.
I used 2 shades of blue as my highlights on the hat- then my variations of gray/black.
The color list is attached above with hints. I hope it is helpful.
After coloring the main image- using Washi-Tape®- I taped off the ground horizon line.
Using a flicking motion around the moon, I started adding the glow.
I built the color out starting with Y00, B000, B00, B45, and last B97 as shown.
I printed a copy paper image and quickly fussy cut to make a mask for my dog and moon images.
Using a stiff paint brush and some 91% Alcohol; I splattered the sky to give it a bit of a magical/mystical effect.
The second image, fussy cut carefully.
Embellish the Fussy cut image. Snip some grass/twigs for the broom bristles; don't forget a couple for wrapping.
Apply small dots of green glitter glue to the bubbles in the beaker. Let Dry. Then apply Nuvo® Crystal Glace to the full beaker. Let Dry. Set to side.
Cut the Heidi Grace Designs® - Shimmer Tangled Web to 7"x5" for a card front.
Using the largest of the Vintage Torn edge rectangle dies; place on the left side of the main image as shown. ONLY ROLL HALF-WAY THROUGH THE BIG SHOT®.
Move the die to the right side as shown and repeat. ONLY ROLL HALF-WAY THROUGH THE BIG SHOT®.
Edge the die cut image using VersaMagic® - Deep Ocean.
Using Foam Tape®, adhere the main image centered on the Tangled Web card front.
Using Foam Tape® on the backside of the fussy cut image; align and adhere over the main image.
Using an extra piece of the Shimmer Tangled Web, fussy cut a web maybe 3-4 rounds to fit in the upper left corner of card.
Trim off excess. Using a MultiLiner-Black® draw a line from the web about an inch long and (6) six legs as shown.
Adhere a black rhinestone as the body of the spider.
Using Liquid Pearls®-Onyx place (2) two small
dots for eyes on the spider. Let Dry.
Adhere the cardfront to a 7"x5" cardbase with the fold at the top as shown.
OPTIONAL: You could fussy cut an extra Tangled Web. Adhere a name plaque and web to the back of the card and draw a line, (6) six legs and apply Liquid Pearls® as the body for the spider. Let Dry. Such a FUN card for the dog lover in your life...
