The Goddess is Alive and Magic is Afoot - Molly Harrison Witch

"As women, we have superpowers. We are sisters. We are healers. We are mothers. We are goddess warriors."  -Merle Dandridge.

Hey there from Nannyland,

I bought this fantastic sentiment stamp many years ago at one of my first stamp conventions, thinking it was begging for a magical image to bring it to life. I found a stamp of a fancy fairy with a wand and a long flowy dress, flying amidst a flurry of stars, and my first fantasy card was born.  It certainly wasn't the last!  I had no idea at the time that it would foretell the type of stamping and coloring I would eventually come to love. Who knew glamorous ladies of all ilks, especially fairies and witches,  would become my great obsession.  This beautiful mystical creature is a Molly Harrison digi stamp that I found in my abundant Molly  library, but I'm sorry to say I'm not sure where I got it. It may have been a free stamp.  Here is a link to Molly Harrison Art where you can find tons of images in all their incredible majesty. Her artwork completely draws me in with it's beautiful detail and captivating charm. I have many of her greyscale and line images and I like both, but I think I prefer the line images for coloring.  I love adding dimension and movement with shading and detailing without having to allow for the grey shading already on the image. 

I chose a white lacy oval frame for my image to make the beautiful colors pop on my bright green card base.  After fussy cutting my Copic colored image, I adhered her to a gold edged water color digi background and then adhered the oval to my frame with mounting tape.   I used a white gel pen for details and added a lavender beaded embellishment to her hat.  I was excited to add my fancy stamped sentiment with its pretty font to enhance the mystical mood of my card.  

What's more beautiful than a gorgeous fanciful enchantress to remind us that we are all Goddess's and are capable of creating our own "magic?" I hope you have an opportunity to conjure up a happy spell or two as you craft through this bewitching season.
