Day 10 of 31 Days of Halloween: Bombshell Sketch Challenge

Hello! For today's project, I decided to not go the Halloween route. Instead I went down the path of Dia de los Muertos. Today is the day the October Sketch is revealed on the Bombshell Blog, so I of course wanted to play along.


For this card, I went with 2 sets from Bombshell Stamps. Dia de los Muertos and All My Heart. I went for a very pastel color pallet  which is very unusual for me.


I used watercolor markers and Copics for all of my images. I love how the wings turned out. I used a little bit of Star Dust Stickles, and it really gave the wings some dimension and magic.

I think perhaps next  time, I may try what some of the other talented Wicked Bloggers do, and layer the heck out of those wings for some real dimension.

I used the same Stickles around the sentiment. If you've seen the original sketch, you'll see that I altered it slightly. I did that to better suit the position of my focal image.
So a bit of a break from the deep purple, orange, black and green that many of us have been doing, huh? Yeah, I'm sure I'll be sharing something with those colors again tomorrow, have no fear! But for now, please visit the Bombshell Blog to see what some of the other gals have cooked up for your viewing pleasure. And please also visit the Wicked Bloggers from the Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. Everyone is listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!
