Oooooo... witchy woman...

Hello, hello!

The Lil Lolita challenge this week is all about roses and flowers... and sure I could have gone with a veritable garden of bright and pretty roses but there was just something about Kellita that was leading me down a different path for my card. A dark and twisty kinda Halloweeny path... LOL! :)
The last time I was coloring a "big head" Kellita her clothes got me to thinking that if I colored them right she could look a bit witchy. So that is exactly what I did. Well that, and draw a hat to complete her magical ensemble. ;)

Once Kellita had made her 'wicked' transformation it was time for her to get a garden fit for All Hallow's Eve so I mixed some black ribbon roses with the little orange roses. Pretty? Pretty spooky! LOL!

Okey dokey, now it is time for you to pull out a Lil Lolita stamp or digi (hey US girls... did you know that you can order Lil Lolitas from All That Scraps now?) and play along in the challenge! Every week Kellie has a fab prize up for grabs from the Tickled Pink store that you won't want to miss out on the chance of winning! :)

Angela said...

Too funny Amy, I have started coloring this image to make her a good witch too!! I haven't even begun to draw her hat yet as the thought of drawing something scares me to death!! So she may be a witch without a hat!!lol!! Or I may have to draw 50 of them to get it to look right!!
Your card is just too cute girl!!
Kellita looks beauitful!! Nothing scary about this witch!!
Hugs:)

Beautiful, Amy! LOVE the Halloweenie flowers... fabulous!

stephanne said...

Hahaha, how funny we are all morphing Kellita into a witch, I'd like to think it's because of the corset bodice but.......

Fab work, the colours are brilliant and perfect placement of her hat!!

Wow Amy what a fantastik idea to add that hat. Wonder if Kellita likes being a witch - question is, would she be a good witch or bad? LOL!! Oh good I think - she looks so innocent. Fabulous flowers!!! I just freakin love this card!

I am loving this technique of enlarging the coloring just the head of these wonderful images. I'm putting that on my "try" list! Awesome card, as always Amy!
