TSB Snowman Joy

This week on The Stamping Boutique the challenge is non traditional Christmas colors.
I was a little boring with my non traditional colors. Brown and Blue aren't traditional right?
Sledding Snowman from The Stamping Boutique is colored with Copics. I added Stickles and Glossy Accents. I followed a past Mojo Monday sketch on this one. I needed a little inspiration. My brain hasn't been working all that well lately :)
 
I used a Stampin Up punch to cut the circles.

TSB Thanksgiving Girl

This week on The Stamping Boutique the challenge is Fall Colors
 Thanksgiving is coming and I have a lot to be thankful for. This cute image is Audrey the Pilgrim. I colored her with Copics.
 I cut out this cutie with my Spellbinders and inked the edges. I added Stickles around the image.
 I used Jaded Blossom sentiments on the inside and out. I used scraps of paper most are DCWV however the bottom left is something else I believe. I added a couple of glitter brads and some ribbon.

I used this sketch from The Stamping Boutique's Facebook group challenge. I actually created this sketch and run the challenge in that group. Not bad for my first sketch.

SSD Bride of Frankenstein

This week on Sassy Studio Designs the challenge is Halloween. 
I used a simple layout on this card but love the outcome.
This image is Bride of Frankenstein by Sassy Studios. She is really pretty for a dead woman don't you think, lol. I used E02 skin color then colored green on top of it to get the shade of the skin.
 Here is a closer view so you can see how sparkly I made her dress. I used Paper Studio Halloween paper and some left over DCWV. I had some left overs to use up. The stamp on the inside is a dollar stamp from Michaels that I bought a long time ago.
Head over to Sassy Studio Designs to play along with the Halloween challenge.
