Sweet Gothic Kids Halloween Preview!

Hello hello! Welcome to the Simply Betty Stamps Sweet Gothic Kids Halloween Preview! Today, the SBS gals, and The Burtonesque Dolls are sharing 3 of the 6 new images that will be released tomorrow! And, I made 2 of my cards for sketch challenges. So, let’s get started!
The first sketch challenge I worked with was the latest Deconstructed Sketch. I love Jen’s sketches!

The Deconstructed Sketch 13
And here is my take on it, using Rag Doll Sally.

I opted to not go with Halloween colors for her. Doesn’t she look sugary sweet?

I colored her with markers. The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday. And I used papers from various companies.
Next up is Punkin’ Judy! For this card, I used this month’s Smeared & Smudged Sketch.


And here’s my take on it.

Another cutie, right? I went for muted Fall colors for this one, and I love the end result. The houndstooth background paper (DCWV) has gold glitter on it, which is so pretty!

Again, I used markers for this image. For my last card today, I didn’t go with a sketch. Say hello to Pumpkin Carving Alex!

He makes me think that this is what Phoenix is going to look like in 10 years. I can totally picture him like this. Isn’t Alex handsome? I love his cool hair and funky clothes!

Markers were used yet again, and my sentiment is from Cosmo Cricket. The punch is from You-Know-Who. I love it because it’s so big and bold.
I hope you enjoyed this preview! Tomorrow, the Simply Betty Gals and The Burtonesque Dolls will show you the last 3 Sweet Gothic Kids, and it will also be release day! So you will be able to purchase these cuties for yourself! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
