When witches go riding

Hello everyone!

All kinds of spooky things happen when witches go riding! These adorable little witches are included in the digital stamp set called ‘Bewitching Mice‘ from StreamSide Studios. They are so busy brewing up that bubbly goo just for you!

This post is part of are having a Spook-tacular Instagram Hop today. We would love to have you join us for some fun and a chance to win. Link to my Instagram page with the hop list and rules can be found below.

I created this adorable little Halloween scene with these super fun little mice in Photoshop. Once I had all those adorable little mice where I wanted them and sized correctly, I printed it out on Neenah Solar Crest White 80# paper. Then came the fun part of watching these cuties come to life by coloring them with the following markers and pencils.

~Copics and Prismacolor Pencils~
Greens: YG17, YG03, YG01, YG00, YG0000
Mice: W4, W3, W2, W1, W0, R20, R30, R00
Cauldron: 100, W5, W7, W6, W5
Floor: E49, E29, E27, E25, E55, E31, E30
Tans: E43, E42, E41, E40

Yellow-Gold: (Pencils) 1082, 1034, 942, 940, 1012, 140

I used a ruler and very lightly penciled in the brick background and then used markers and pencils to shade the bricks. I drew the pattern in the floor as I colored, crossing my fingers the whole time that it would somehow resemble wood flooring.

My card base is mini-slimline size 6-1/4″ x 3-1/2″. I trimmed my card front to 6″ x 3-1/4″ and added a black mat of 6-/8″ x 3-3/8″ before attaching it to the white card base.

You’re a shining STAR

Hello, hello friends!

I am back today with a new release cutie from All Dressed Up Stamps called ‘Star‘. I fell absolutely in LOVE with her!!

It wasn’t until I had her started that I thought of the idea for the background.

I printed this adorable image on Neenah Desert Storm paper and colored her with the following colored pencils.

~Prismacolor Pencils~
Skin: 941, 1081, 1017, 1092, 939, 927, 997, 929, 938
Hair: 947, 945, 1034, 948, 1082, 946, 1094, 1012
Purples: 935, 1009, 995, 934, 993, 938
Blues: 935, 901, 1025, 1022, 1024, 1086
Star & Letters: 1082, 1034, 942, 916, 1011, 914, 938, White Gel Pen
Bear: 1082, 1034, 942, 1093, 938, 929

I had the idea of a shining star behind her, but of course didn’t have quite the right stencil for what I had in mind. So…I used drew it in freehand and crossed my fingers and toes that I could get the spacing right.

HELLO THERE

Hello friends!

I am back today with another cutie from All Dressed Up Stamps. This little sweetheart is called Dog Walker. I absolutely love that sweet little braid she has in her hair…so utterly adorable!!

Walking with our dogs was my intention 5 years ago when we got two Mini Australian Shepherd puppies. They however do not like to walk on the country roads next to the cars…and they eat things faster than I can see what they put in their mouths. So needless to say I still walk by myself.

I printed this cutie on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following markers.

~Copics~
Skin: E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R00
Hair: E57, E55, E53
Dress & Boots: BG13, BG11, BG10, BV20, Y00, BV23, R43, RV42, R30, R00, C4, C2
Backpack: E44, E43, E42, E41, E40, BV23, R43, R30
Bunny: C4, C2, C0, R20
Dogs: E34, E31, E30
Grass: YG67, YG63, YG61, G43, G40

The dies are from Sunny Studio Stamps and Magnolia DooHickeys. I layered the flowers together and added a single stamen to make the flowers look a little more 3D.

You’re SPOOK-tacular

Hello everyone!

I am back today with a little cutie from Streamside Studios digital new release stamp set called My Little Pet Ghost.

I printed this sweetheart on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following markers.

I love the cute little animal ghosts from this set and wanted to be sure to use them in this project. I found a creative way to incorporate them into my design by creating an arrangement with them and printing them on pink paper. I LOVE how it turned out!!

The dies are from Spellbinders, My Favorite Things, Gina Marie Designs, Impression Obsession, and Cheery Lynn.
