Miss Witch

I just love the leggy witches in the Halloween 2 cling set and thought she'd be perfect for this sketch! Miss Witch is colored with watercolor pencils, with bits of sparkle here and there using a Sakura Gelly Roll pen. Looks like her cat is a little shy today, hiding behind the bow!

see right through me

Here's a playful skeleton from Ken Brown, wearing a top hat and holding a list! I decided to make an accordion fold strip and wrote the sentiment with a puffy gel pen. Turn the heart brad and the sentiment unfolds: A friend sees right through you and still enjoys the show! The skeleton was inked with VersaMark and embossed with Ranger Seafoam embossing powder. I used Basic Grey Archaic papers and a black grosgrain ribbon.

Party Pumpkins

Here's a fun and simple card made with Party Pumpkins by Robin Pickens. The image was colored with Copics, cut out, and mounted on dimensionals. A pumpkin jingle bell tied onto the black bow makes an easy embellishment!

Thanks for looking! :)

Pretty in Pink

Just a quick upload showing how elegant the new zenspirations line can look.  Love these stamps!!

it's almost pumpkin time

Aren't these little pumpkins cute? They are part of some new releases from the Ken Brown line. The tree paper seemed the perfect place to set the scene. I stamped the girls on Core'dinations peach paper and then paper pieced parts of their dresses. The tree trunk is a piece of upholstery trim.

the cat and the fiddle

This Ken Brown cat does a jig on a fiddle found (and cut) from a thrift store book! I colored him with Copic markers.

I just can't get enough of these images!! I used a stamp from the Zenspirations line for this card and colored it with copics. I colored outside of the lines using alot of blending ink for a watercolor look.
Thanks for looking.

A Chorus Line ala Pumpkins***

This sweet Pumpkin line is designed by Robin Pickens... They are stamped in Memento Black ink, colored with Copics. The sentiment is AAS as well.
Two cards, same image, same paper just positioned a little differently..

Who doesn't love a parade, even if it's a party of one! I love this drum major from Ken Brown...hope you do to. I colored her with Copics and used a suede ribbon finger
pleating as I laid it down across the top.

Don't forget the warehouse sale through August 14th on the American Art Stamp site. Lots
of things on sale, cling sets and individual stamps.
