Midweek Magnolias - Song Birds

Happy Wednesday, Friends! We at Midweek Magnolias are back with a new challenge and our theme this fortnight is...

Song Birds!

We want to see those lovely creations that are inspired by a song but NOT Happy Birthday.

The song that inspired me to create this card is “I Put a Spell on You” performed by Bette Midler from the movie, Hocus Pocus. If you've never seen this movie it is a Halloween comedy treat. A Disney film from 1993 and it still makes me laugh. I've included a short clip from the movie of the song at the end of the post for you viewing enjoyment.

My card features “Witch Tilda” from the Magnolia So Spooky collection. She is colored with Copics and I paper pieced her dress from one of my Doodlebug Design papers. Then I shaded the dress with warm grey Copics.

I had lots of fun picking out papers, die cuts and ghoulish embellies for my Halloween card.

Here’s a close-up of Tilda.

Stamps – Magnolia: Witch Tilda
Ink – Memento: Rich Cocoa; Ranger: Black Soot DI
Papers/Cardstock – Doodlebug Design: Haunted Manor collection; Bazzill cardstock
Dies – La-La-Land Crafts: Scary Tree; Martha Stewart: Wrought Iron Bat fence, Spider Web border; EK Success: Circle Punch.
Other – Martha Stewart: Pumpkins and Bats stickers; Tall Mouse Cre8tive Artz: Orange Glitter Webbing; Stash: Spider Web
Copic Colors – Skin: E35, E11, E00, E000, R20, R30. Hair: C7, C2. Hat/ Shoes/ Broom: C7, C5, C4, C2, V17, V15, V12, YR23, Y15, Y13, E29, E25, E31, E50. Shading: W5, W3, W0.

I hope my card inspires you to join us for the challenge. Now here's a short clip from the movie, Hocus Pocus.
