My Double Challenge Friday!

Happy Friday! The week just whizzed by! the kids are settling into school and the family is getting into a nice routine! So far, so good! I think next week will be the true test as they will start up their music lessons and hockey as well.

My first card today is for the Friday Sketchers Challenge and dear Jacque has provided us with a phenomenal sketch! Very simple yet so many ways to interpret it!

I used another Sweet November stamp (can you tell how much I {heart} these? This one is Baby Trick or Treat Witch and I got her from Stamp & Create ~ here~. I paired her up with this Magnolia sentiment that was part of their Halloween collection last year. I did a little sponging to make it match my patterned paper which is all left-over from last year. My card was looking a little plain so I added some SU brads to the corners and then made some fancy swirls with my Tim Holtz die. I remembered to take a picture of the markers I used:

We hope  you will be able to play along and post your own creation on the Friday Sketcher blog.

My second card is for the Wags ‘n Whiskers Challenge. This week we are challenged to use Fall colors. I wanted to ink up one of the older releases and chose this very sweet image; Snuzzle Love which is available ~here~. The first thing I did was to choose my paper. I decided to use Cosmo Cricket’s Earth love because the colors were perfect for a fall theme. Then I picked out some Copic Sketch markers that matched the DP! This is not a color palette which I have ever used but I am really pleased with the way it turned out. The final touches were this gorgeous Magnolia blossom and my very favorite ribbon: May Arts Silk. It is so gorgeous and I love the luxurious feel of it!

This wonderful sketch is from this week’s Papertake Challenge!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Thanks you so much for sharing your beautiful work. What I wouldn't give for someone like you to sit down with me and my copics and give me some training. I've had them for several months and just keep putting off learning how to make them look even near as good as yours.

Lynn said...

Your coloring is absolutely lovely. What I wouldn't give to have you next door to sit down and teach me on the copics. I have had mine for months now and have barely used them but want them to look good when I do. Thanks for sharing your beautiful work.
