Sweetest Witch Sketch


WMS Design Team member Sarah Martina Parker has a two-for-one special at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog this week!  There you will find both a sketch for a card (as seen above), but also a sketch for a scrapbook page!

(click on the picture for a slightly larger view)

I had so much fun using Gracie at Halloween.  She just flew in on her broom from Ireland after the August 1st special release!  I paper pieced her outfit using papers from the Queen Bee Collection by Pink Paislee.  An unusual color scheme for me, but so much fun!


I have only a limited number of Copic Markers, so I brightened the dots on her cloak with a yellow marker, and added some shading.  I realized after the fact that she is wearing a coat AND a cape separately, but today since it's all the same pattern, I am calling it a cloak... and sticking to it!  Colored the teeny kitty with grey ink and a sponge dauber.  Added lots of dimensionals, and sprinkled the edges of the moon with coarse glitter.  Oh I just love that Gracie!  The equally sweet Cicely at Halloween will be featured soon.  I couldn't bring one girl home and not the other ;)

Come play along with one of these awesome sketches!  Upload your creation HERE by next Friday, August 27th.  Be sure to include at least one Waltzingmouse Stamps image in your creation to be eligible to be the randomly-selected participant who will win a WMS set of choice!

Supplies:
Stamps:  witch, sentiment and two bats from Gracie at Halloween, and another bat from Cicely at Halloween, both from Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  The Queen Bee Collection, Pink Paislee, and PTI's Vintage Cream and Harvest Gold cardstock
Ink:  Memento Black, Copic Markers, Memento London Fog
Other:  circle punch, Martha Stewart clear coarse glitter, brown rick rack

This card is so cute! I love the new WMS stamps with the girls, but I hardly ever make Halloween cards/projects. I'm hoping we see the girls in other holiday offerings:) Your paper piecing turned out great! TFS!

Gracie is very sweet and not at all scary! Love the unusual colours you've used and the perfect paper piecing.
