Hello Pumpkin–C4C #351

C4C351_2016aug27

Hello and welcome to this week’s Crazy 4 Challenges! Jessie is our hostess this month and this week’s challenge is to make a holiday card: Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas.

I guess I ended up with a Halloween card--not a very scary one, though. I started with a
Sweet Tooth card stock base. Next I added Ranger Watercolor paper on which I’d applied a watercolor wash with Peerless Watercolors and a waterbrush, stamped the sentiment from lJD Spooky Sweets with Black Licorice hybrid ink (I use hybrid ink on watercolored surfaces—it provides a crisper image), tied around some baker’s twine, then popped it up on foam mounting tape.

I wanted a watercolor look for my pumpkins, too, so I inked them up with Orange Zest dye ink, gave them a light spritzing with clean water, and stamped. I used the same technique for the stems with Jellybean Green dye ink, cut them out with LJD Spooky Sweets Die-namics, and popped them up on foam.

And that's it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you!

THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C351.

Thanks for stopping by today—see you soon!

Am I the only one who saw WINTER with this color combo? I’m seeing a bright blue sky, leafless trees, and snow covered hills. LOL, oh, that’s my card! ;-)

I started with a
Primitive White card stock base and built on it. Ranger Watercolor Paper with a watercolor wash done with Peerless Watercolors and a waterbrush, Stitched Mountain Range Die-namics cut from Cement Gray card stock and Grout Gray card stock provide the background.

In the foreground Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock, was stamped with the sentiment from Winter Wonderland in Gravel Gray dye ink. Birch Trees Die-namics cut from Primitive White card stock finish off the scene.

MFTWSC295_2016aug25

Hi, everyone, I’m back with this week’s MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s sketch.

I wanted to play with the recently release Frightful Friends and was determined to make it work—and I think I did. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base and stamped the sentiment with Black Licorice dye ink. On a panel of Smooth White card stock, I sponged my eerie sky using, light to dark, Banana Split dye ink, Orange Zest dye ink, Grape Jelly dye ink, Blueberry dye ink, and Nightshift Blue dye ink. Smooth White card stock makes sponging so much easier because, well, it’s SMOOTH! I splattered some clear water and then some watered down white craft paint to create my starry sky.

Next I added Grassy Edges Die-namics cut from Gumdrop Green card stock, Frightful Fence Die-namics, cut from Black Licorice card stock, and the moon from LJD Spooky Sweets Die-namics cut from Banana Split card stock. I stamped the images with Black Licorice hybrid ink, colored with Copic markers, and popped them up on foam mounting tape to finish
