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!
