The Coquettes Preview Day and Day 24 of 31 Days

Greetings my fang-tastic friends! It’s time for another preview for Simply Betty Stamps! I will be showing you 2 cards today, both featuring new images from The Coquettes Collection. One card is Halloweenie, and works not only for the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween, but also for the Simply Betty Stamps 12 Days of Halloween. The other card….is…c-u-t-e! I know, right? Me? Do cute???

This is Nicholas, and he is of course, today’s Halloween card. Today, as I mentioned is Day 8. 8 Monsters Shrieking, to be exact. Well, instead of focusing on the monsters, I’m focusing on the number 8. I have 8 stripes on my card.

I colored Nicholas with my pencils, and I shaded around him with Pumice Stone Distress Inks.

Isn’t he handsome? And I made sure to give him cherry red Doc Martens, just like the ones I own! :)

And this is the cute one! Really though…with these girls, it’s hard not to make a cute card! This is Cosette and Lolli…and they are just sweet as pie!

I colored Cosette with a combination of markers and colored pencils. I love her little skully bow!

Lolli was done entirely with pencils. I don’t usually color blondes…but these two just had to be blonde in my mind.

Another kinda simple card…I wanted these images to really shine. What do you think??? I will have more from this collection tomorrow, when they will be officially released. Be sure to stop by not only the SBS Blog to see more of The Coquettes, but swing by the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
