Freshly Made Sketches #447

Happy middle of the week! Honestly I’m glad for the Wednesday challenge to help me keep track of the days right now. The oh so talented Kim Singdahlsen is our sketch designer at Freshly Made Sketches this week and this one is such a classic.

In fairness to Kim, I truly started on a path of following the sketch completely. But sometimes designing goes a different path. I think I stayed true enough to the intent at least. I thought a Halloween card was just what I needed to shake it up. And what could be more fun that this Trick or Treaters Stamp Set by Picket Fence Studios. I just love these sweet images! I colored the adorable witch and her, um, friend with Copic Markers. Then using the Outdoor Scene Builder Stencil from SweetPea Designs, I inked the grass. I added a bit of a purple sky and used the same stencil for the stars. I had a couple of great sentiment choices but this one made me smile when used with this little cutey.

I hope you’ll come over and play with us this week. The team has created such wonderful inspiration, as they do each week. Thank you for stopping in today. I’m always grateful for the chance to share with you. Have a great rest of your week.

Picket Fence Studios August Release

Picket Fence Studios August Release published on 2 Comments on Picket Fence Studios August Release

Happy August release day from Picket Fence Studios! I’m so excited to share a couple of projects using two of the new sets. Also, this is my second post of the day. If you are looking for Week 2 of the Freshly Made Sketches #400 Celebration, just scroll down.

So in that “what did you do on your summer vacation” prompt for blogging, my family did a long weekend in New York City and I finally got to see Wicked. Yep, you can see where I’m going with this. Needless to say, the moment I saw the If You’ve Got It, Haunt It set, I knew I had to create Elphaba. Isn’t she glorious with her green complexion?!

I used my Zig Clean Color Markers to color her on Bristol Smooth Paper and then cut her out using circle die. I found this awesome ombré paper that matched perfectly too. Now this sentiment made me jump for joy! It comes from the Wicked Together stamp set and it was PERFECT! A few green sequins as a finishing touch.

Next up is another adorable Halloween set called Trick or Treaters. This little group of ghouls could not be even a little cuter! And the perfect size for quick coloring. I colored them up using Copic Markers and thought it would be fun to make a wobbler card. Yep, that little spider is on an Action Wobbler and it just makes me chuckle. I’ll have a short video over at Instagram if you care to see it in action. My background was created with Distress Ink in Wilted Violet and I used Tonic Glimmer Paste to add extra dimension with the Random Dots Stencil. The sentiment from the new Witch, Please cracked me up with the spider.

I hope you enjoy these cards and the whole release! Hop on over to Picket Fence Studios to see all the offerings! Thanks so much for stopping in today. And happy shopping…because you are going to want it all!
