Sketch Saturday #332

Good morning!  Happy Saturday!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!  I'm not up yet when you see this, but I am looking forward to a nice weekend and hopefully a little down time.  I am here now with my DT post for this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge.  This week, we are sponsored by Bunny Zoe's Crafts who are offering the winner a £10 GC to the Bunny Zoe's Crafts store.


Here is this week's sketch, designed by Debra:

Here is my take on the sketch:
 

My card base and mats are SU Basic Black and the patterned papers are from my Halloween stash.  The fun image is Witchy Concoctions, one of the new Halloween stamps from Make it Crafty.  I colored the whole scene with my Copics.  I tried out the glow technique, but I obviously need a little more practice at it!  I also tried to give the background an eerie look. Not sure if I was successful.  I added a bit of Glossy Accents to the gauge on the pot.  I didn't add any embellishments so the scene could be the focus.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Sketch Saturday blog and check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the Saturday Girls!  We hope you will find time to play along this week!

My card base and mats are SU Basic Black and the patterned paper is from my Halloween stash.  I printed Little Witch With Broom on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  Some Baker's Twine and a few glitter buttons finished my card.

Friday Coloring Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  I hope you had a good week and you have fun plans for the weekend.  We have had perfect Fall days here of late.  Love the crispness in the air, but the days are still warm.  We'll see what the weekend brings. Right now, I am here with my DT post for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is a color inspiration, courtesy of Design Seeds and the Fresh Hues blog.  You don't have to match the colors exactly, but we want to see the general color palette on your project.  And don't forget, you can use any coloring medium you would like, but you must have a hand-colored image somewhere on your creation.

Here is the color inspiration:
 
Here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Ruby Red and the patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Mellow 6x6 pad.  The cute image is Country Pumpkin from Karleigh Sue Digis, our sponsor for the month of Ooctober.  We were generously provided with a couple of images to work with.  I colored her with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A few Fall-colored gems finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Elphine House Australia Challenge #63 - Pumpkins

Hi there!  Happy Wednesday (at least in Brisbane)!  It's still Tuesday night here, but it's time for me to share my DT card for the new Elphine House Australia Challenge.  The theme this month is "pumpkins".  You can use any Elisabeth Bell image you'd like, but we want to see one or more pumpkins on your project.  The pumpkin doesn't have to be in the image.

Here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Really Rust and the patterned paper is from my pile and I have no idea whose it is.  All I know is that it has pumpkins!  The cute image is Tommy's Apples For Mommy from Elphine House Australia! I stamped him on MiC Blending Card and colored him with my Copics.  I added a few opaque gems and a 3D pumpkin sticker to finish my cute Autumn card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:
 

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Elphine House Australia blog and check out the darling creations from Lynda and Lynne!  We hope you will find time to play along this time.  You have until Tuesday, November 18th, Brisbane time to enter your project.
