Coquettes Release Day, Plus Day 25 of 31 Days and SBS Day 8 of 12 Days

It’s release day for the new Coquettes collection from Simply Betty Stamps! Have I mentioned that I came up with the name of this collection? ;) Today I will be showing you 2 of the last 3 images. Time has just completely escaped, so I only got to 2. The first is Lulu.


I had colored her a while back, then I had gotten the  Ltd. Ed. Distress Inks from Kelli, and she coordinated so well! I sponged the inks on and then sprayed it all down with some water, to let the colors bleed a bit. Then I inked on the webbing and title (Basic grey) with StazOn. I added the pretty glitter, and of course Lulu.


I colored her with my watercolor markers. I love the shape of her eyes…

And now I have Priscilla to show you. For this card, I went along with the SBS 12 Days of Halloween. Today’s challenge is “9 Ghosts a Booing.”

I must say, I love how I colored Priscilla. The colors blended so well, the shading was just right, and I think I have an interesting color combo. Do you see my ghosties in the background? I don’t think Priscilla does…

My hair was this color once. I loved it. :) I’ll do it again someday…

There you have it! Another great release from Simply Betty Stamps! And, more projects for the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween! Be sure to visit the SBS Blog for more eye candy, as well as the rest of the fabulous Wicked Bloggers, listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a spook-tacular day!
