Sassy Witch for Sponsor's

Hiya over at Sassy Studio Designs we like to Sponsor Challenge Blogs

Today we are Sponsoring Penny's Challenges their theme is Polka Dots & Pearls

We are also Sponsoring Crabbie Moments of Craft their theme is Anything Goes & Halloween/Spellbound/Fairy Tales

I combined both Challenges into one card, a bit of 'two birds, one stone' theory

I have used 'Sassy Witch'

I coloured her using Copic Markers

Hair & Shoes: C10, C8, C6, C4
Skin: YG667, YG63, YG61
Lips: E09, E07, E04
Eyes: C4, C2
Dress & Hat: V09, V06, V01
Broom Handle: E35, E31
Broom Brush: E44, E43, E41

This 'Wicked' Halloween card fits the Halloween Theme perfectly then I tied in the Polka Dots using a stamp over a purple backing paper, Pearls I added to a Die-Cut under the topper.

I mixed it up a bit using Spider and Spiderweb stamps black in and some green distress inks.

The Sentiment Stamp is from Visible Image.

I chose these colours as they arent the traditional Halloween colours and I really like how they look together.

I added a Spider Charm using some jewellery wire.

I hope you like my card and that you will visit again soon

Bat Queen Betty

Today I have been taking part in a Challenge over at Simply Betty Stamps Facebook Fan Group

There was a Freebie Image to use this weekend which was exclusive to Members of the Fan Group 
The Challenge has been a lot of Fun 

Her name is 'Bat Queen Betty' 

I coloured 'Bat Queen Betty' using mainly Copic Markers but also two Orange Promarkers because I do not have enough colours in my Copic collection just yet

Hair: C10, C8, C6, C4 also N5 with Terracota & Spice Promarkers
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000

Skirt: YR04, YR02 with Spice Promarker

I inked the edges of the topper using Spiced Marmalade & Black Soot distress inks and matted using black mirror board.

I stamped a spiderweb & Spider stamps (from Inkadinkado) repeatedly around and 8x8 card blank. Then built up some layers using black mirror board and dark orange backing paper which I stamped again using the spiderweb & spider stamps. I die cut a curcular die using Burnt Orange Coredinations cardstock which I inked through the die using black soot distress ink I cut this die cut in half and fixed half to opposite corners of the topper.

I created some texture with some cheese cloth and then attached the topper using foam tape. I choose some black Halloween peel off stickers (tree, bats, Boo! & eyes) to tie the card together

I hope you like my card and will visit again soon

Paperbabe Picture Inspiration Challenge

Today begins a New Challenge over at Paperbabe Stamps Blog and the theme is a Colour Picture Inspiration and it's perfect for this time of year

I wanted to upcycle an Instant Mash Tin to use as a craft tool pot so using some lush Paperbabe Stamps and some of my craft stash this is what I did

I have used 'Mayleedee Witchily' stamp for the main image on my project which I have coloured using some of my Copic Markers

Hair: R27, R17, R08, YR07
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000
Eyes & Book: YG67, YG63
Lips: E09, E04
Hat: E44, E43, E41
Blouse & Hatband: E44, E43
Skirt: E43, E41
Cat: N5, N3, R02
Background: YR24, YR23, YR21

I trimmed a large piece of cream cardstock which I stamped using the Leaf stamp and some of the smaller Conker elements from the 'Completely Conkers' set in various shades of distress inks to match the colours in the Inspiration Picture, I also added a few speckles using pale distress ink and the small splat stamp from the 'Watercolour Alphabet' set.

I wrapped a strip of frayed burlap around the top of the tin for texture

Ive diecut the coloured Image using a circle die and matted this onto a diecut doily circle, I attahed this circlar topper to the front of the covered tin and embellished using some colour matching paper flowers and some diecut flourishes. Lastly I punched a tag wich I tapped on the sentiment from the 'Mayleedee Witchily' set and the Autum sentiment from the 'Completely Conkers' set

Don't forget to join in the Paperbabe Challenge over on the Blog and why not join the Facebook Paperbabe Fan Group

I hope you like my upcycling project and hope you visit again soon

Paperbabe New October Stamp Release Showcase day #2

Hiya it is such an exciting week for us all at Paperbabe Stamps we are getting to Showcase the New Release Stamps for October 

Today is the turn of the New 'Watercolour Alphabet' stamp sets there are two sets Uppercase and Lowercase and they are gorgeous

I had a lot of inky fun with these stamps and my Distress Inkpads I love how the letters work together with their watercoloured partners - I love all the paint splats and elements too so much fun x

My Watercolour Alphabet example

Im a bit addicted to making my own backing papers using stamps so I have done that again for this card using some of the smaller paint splats from the lowercase set. I then attached this paper to a scallop edge cardblank. 
The main topper is stamped onto Watercolour Card I love the texture of this card and thought it would work lovely with the stamp set.
I have used a few shades Distress Inks on this card some bright and some muted... Milled Lavender, Spun Sugar, Shabby Shutters, Tumbled Glass and Worn Lipstick.
I stamped a few watercolour splats in opposite corners and then i used the layer up hearts and the heart outline in the other two opposite corners along with the tiny watercolour drops. The main section I stamped the larger Spritz stamp from 'Spritz and Speckle' set twice in the middle in 2 different distress ink colours. I then stamped the Water colour letters and then the fineline letters from the set over the top. I doodled lines around the outside of the topper using a fine ZIG liner pen.
It is a simple card layout but i wanted to show off the simplicity of the set

I hope you like my card please visit again tomorrow as I have another Showcase Make lined up for you
