PaperPlay Challenge - Sketch

It’s Thursday so it's time for another challenge at PaperPlay. Stitchy Bear Stamps is kindly sponsoring the challenge this week and the prize is 4 wonderful images. Vera has come up with this brilliant sketch for us to play with.


I was delighted to have a chance to use this great image called Alexandria (on sale at 99c) from Stitchy Bear Stamps. When we go out trick or treating with the kids at Halloween, my friend and I get dressed up as witches - but somehow we never end up looking like this witch!

Stamps - Alexandria (Stitchy Bear Stamps), Lace Background (Hero Arts) & Jeepers Creepers (The Paper Company).

I coloured Alexandria with watercolour pencils and applied diamond stickles to her hat and the black part of her dress. Every time I use stickles or glitter on a card I find it really hard to photograph. So in real life the image is much more sparkly than it looks here. At her feet are some scraps of red tulle and the black card is clear embossed with the Lace Background. Last weekend one of my friends surprised me with a pressie of the Jeepers Creepers stamp set. I was thrilled with it and it turned out to be perfect timing for this card as until then I didn't have any Halloween stamps. The spider and sentiment are from that set.

I hope you'll join us for the sketch challenge on PaperPlay this week!
