First up is the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge to use Kraft. I also used a new snowman stamp from Unity Stamp Co.
I love this simple elegant snowman! He was perfect for a kraft, gold, and silver card. I colored him with Prismacolor Pencils then layered him behind some DCWV shimmer paper. The kraft background was stamped with snowflakes in white and gold, then I added some texture with a stencil and modeling paste as well as adding the gold trim.
Next I have yet another snowman for the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge to add watercolor!
The snowman I actually painted while at Jenn's Loft Art Retreat :) I didn't finish the card she had planned for us, but I did still have my finished snowman. So I re-purposed him into this snowy scene card. The snowman and the hills were watercolored with Distress Markers. I added some chunky Wow! Glitter along the hills and finished the card with the Season's Greetings die.
Alright, now it's time to switch back to Halloween mode! Lawnscaping is hosting a Halloween Color Challenge this week...
I love these happy little ghosts! I thought they deserved to have fun trick-or-treating on Halloween night, because they must get tired spooking people all the time ;) I simply colored the pieces with Copics and fussy cut them. I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hills Die to create a ground for the ghosts to rise up from. Paper is from DCWV Eek-a-Boo and glitter mat stack.
Friendly reminder: You have until 11:59pm October 31st to enter the current Mixed Media Monthly Challenge: Ribbons, Twine, or Fibers!! See you there!
