Mind Your Mummy!

mind your mummy

What more needs to be said!?!

The images are “Mummy and Child” and “Petite Halloween Sentiment Set” from the Rubbernecker Halloween Stamps. I colored the images with colored pencils (there is a touch of Stickles on the jack-o-lantern for some festive shine).

The paper is Basic Grey.  To age the strips I used the ink blending tool and a touch of Tim Holtz Distress Ink (pumice stone).

I think this is such a FUN image, because dressing my kids up and spending time with them is my absolute favorite part of Halloween!

Thanks for stopping by!

Goin’ with the flow

This card was inspired by my son.  He is not a surfer, but he is pretty laid back.  I held myself back from using bumpy embellishments, and just let this paper and image take center stage.


The image is from the set “Juniper and Jupiter Go to the Beach” from Starving Artistamps.

I hope your day goes with the flow, today!

Thanks for stopping by!

A Couple of Sketches and a Couple of Cards

Starving Artistamps is sponsoring a couple of sketch challenges. 

The first is at Rubber Stamp Chat, the September Sketch Challenge.  Here is my take on the sketch:

have faith

Stamps from Starving Artistamps (Lighthouse set and Faith Sentiment).  The image was stamped on watercolor paper and colored with distress ink re-inkers.  The buttons were bought years ago…for just such a time as this!

Also, this week, Starving Artistamps is sponsoring 2 Sketches 4 You!  Kazan has sketched #61!

My take:

2s4y Hello

The images are from Backlit Blooms from Starving Artistamps.

The papers are from Making Memories and 7 Gypsies.
