Friday Sketchers # 124 & Spooktacular Wags

Happy Friday! Whew! This has been a week! I feel like I have been on the go all week long! Today I go for my fitness evaluation at the gym and the trainer will created a work-out for me.  I bet I will be sore later on today but you know the old saying “No pain, no gain” LOL!

My first card for today is for this week’s Friday Sketchers Challenge. We are being hosted by the very sweet and super talented Aud this week.

I have used one of my very favorite Tilda images for this one. I was inspired by the gorgeous My Mind’s Eye paper that I picked up at Scrapbook Centrale which is an amazing store to visit if you love scrapbooking or card-making! If you live in or around Montreal you NEED to check it out.

My second card for today is for the Wags ‘n Whiskers challenge and this week it was my turn to pick the theme. I have challenged everyone to create a “Spooktacular” card with a Wags image. I have been wanting to try coloring an image in a monochromatic grey tone for a while now and I must say it really changes how an image looks!

It was a whim to color her eyes green. Then I decided to add some pops of orange and then I added some green stickles and that led to some sponging with green ink but other than that…it is monochromatic! LOL!

The edge is made with the Martha Stewart drippy goo punch!

I am looking forward to seeing how you change your Wags stamps into something spooktacular. Check out our blog to see the fantastic interpretations by the rest of the Divas!

Both are fantastic card. But I am floored over your Nichola card!! The grey tone you used for her skin is almost a "blueish" tint on the computer screen so she looks "undead" especially with her "witchy" green eyes!! What a wonderful adaption for a halloween card!!
