Simply Betty's Witches Christmas Day

Jingle spells, jingle spells, it's Witches Christmas Day!! Well it is over at Simply Betty's challenge blog. This is my card for Day 5 of the 12 Days of Christmas where we were supposed to deck out our favorite Simply Betty Stamps witch. I used Witch Betty from the Halloween line and colored her to look like she was going to a Christmas ball or something. Betty is colored with Copic markers and I added some spica markers on her socks and sleeves for a more festive look. I wanted the smoke out of the cauldron to look sparkly too so I painted it with some Extreme Glitter paint from Folk Art. I love that little sentiment circle asking "naughty or nice?". Papers are by Making Memories.
I have been painting quite a bit lately, but can't show you anything because they are all Christmas gifts. Normally a week or so before the holidays, I will keep my friend's two daughters for a full day of shopping for their mom's gift, drinking frozen hot chocolate (or a peppermint mocha) and then will spend the rest of the day crafting. That way their mom can finish wrapping and getting all of her last minute stuff done without her little helpers. They have been seeing all my paints sitting out so they have specifically requested a painting day. I went to Jo-Ann's and found some really cute plaster and wood ornaments to paint. The girls love all things that glitter so I had to stock up on some glittery paint for their ornaments. I found the Folk Art Extreme Glitter paint and I love that stuff! This was the first time I have used it on paper. But I will be buying more colors!
