I do have two cards for today. How about fun and just for laughs first? I didn't get but a small handful of stamps at the Expo this past weekend. This is two of them from Rubbernecker. I have quite a few of their "character" line. I find them... well hysterical! This was a new one to me and I had to have them! Embrace the Goddess Within - is just a perfect sentiment for this beautiful little lady! LOL! I have to tell you Hubby thought it was an Alien, then once I colored it in, he said "Well it still looks like an Alien... but it also looks just like..... " I won't finish that here just in case. ;0)
Quickly, My little lady is colored with Copics, Sakura Glaze Pens and Spica Glitter Pens, really looks awesome! Love her glitter purple shoes! I used a light purple card stock for the base, then found some scrap dark purple card stock that I placed under a piece of patterned vellum. Thought that had a different but pretty look. The pattern paper is from Heidi Grace and has a beautiful shimmer to it. I matted everything and sewed together (this helps with attaching vellum he he) I wrapped a satin ribbon around the pattern piece and then used three of my new bling flowers across the ribbon. Ok, how funny is it!!!
Now for some serious work.. ha! I just got the new Alota Rubberstamps Halloween Witches Brew collection! There are so many fun images with this collection. I picked a few to fit the sketch of this weeks Friday Sketchers and colored them with Copic Markers, Sakura Glaze Pens and Spica Glitter Pens. My circle is Heidi Grace Halloween Shimmer paper, love it very fun, I cut it with my Fiskars Circle Cutter and placed it on black card stock. I was a little frazzled about what to use for the band across the middle, and then remembered this fun Halloween ribbon that I purchased last year on clearance. Dug for a while and found it! I ran three pieces across to make it wide enough, love how the "boo" ribbon matches her dress. I should say I planned it, but nope pure luck! I turned the sketch to place the pumpkin and cat at the bottom corner. Now you can't see it in the photo but on the black card stock I used a spider stamp that is part of the set and VersaMark water mark stamp, looks kind of neat in person, just hard to see in a photograph. Then I stitched the edges of the circle and around the edge with the orange Soufle pen. The image is inked on the edge with purple and stitched with purple.
Because a black card stock would be hard to do anything on the inside I placed a matted white card stock inside, stamped with the Alota Rubberstamps Happy Halloween, doodle the edge and then stamped with the spider stamp from the set. And this card is perfect timing for this weeks Papertake Weekly Challenge which this week is Halloween! YEA!
I have a few minutes so I am going to try and hit a few blogs, then I have to run... it is MIL shopping day. I hadn't planned for that today but my MIL has a few things she has to do today, so we are going to get everything she needs for the week done today. Hope you have a great Monday planned, make sure to have some time to get inky -
