QKD Whimsical Sketch Challenge (and Macabre Monday #50)

Today is the very first time I have played along with the Whimsical Ink SororityAlex, one of my fellow Smeared & Smudgers (and member of the Kaleidoscope Krew!) mentioned this challenge the other day on the forum. So I decided I just had to play along! It’s a sketch challenge; and here is the sketch.

Cool. I just happened to have a couple images from QKD from a swap I did with the S&S girls. I need to get me some of these stamps because they’re fab!


Isn’t my batty-wench fabulous? Now, you may have noticed in my title that I also mentioned Macabre Monday #50. That challenge is “Foul Flutterings.” Now, I put it in parenthesis not to undermine the creep-tastic Mondays, (have I mentioned that I made Gruesome Twosome with my Jack O’ Lantern Shaker Box card?????) but because this is not the project I originally intended to enter for it. I have another one up my sleeve that I hope (fingers crossed!) to have done tomorrow. So hopefully I will have tow entries this week for the wonderful Haunted Design House.


Once again, my colored pencils were used to color in my image. It’s hard to tell, but her sword and necklace were done up in metallic pencils. It look way better in person.


This wonderful key is from DCWV, their Once Upon a Time collection (my fave!!!). I thought it was just perfect for finishing off this card!

Thanks for looking! Have an inspiring day!!!


Awesome card! Love the batty-wench.:)
