Anne Fenton's Hollyhocks -- Outlawz Sketch Challenge

Hey!!  It's Wednesday!  Hump Day!   (Get over the mid-week hump!!)

A new  Wednesday Sketch Challenge is posted at the Outlawz Challenges!

For the month of September, our sponsor is Anne's Digital Art
The lucky September winner will win a prize of 3 digis and the winner will be announced in October.

Here is the Sketch for this week

And here is my card using Hollyhocks by our sponsor, Anne's Digital Art!  I colored with Copic markers and Prismacolor Colored Pencils. My inspiration photo showed a background of tree bark and I liked the way the lines went "every which way" so I tried to duplicate that effect.  I need more practice, but decided to step out of my comfort zone.

I hope you will pop by the Sketch Challenge and see the beautiful work done by my teammates!
And thanks so much for taking time to stop by here at my little blog!

Happy Halloween! EEK!!!!

It's Friday and we have a new Outlawz Festive Friday's Challenge.  

Each week at the Festive Friday's Challenge, we give you five themes to choose from. The themes are Birthday, Get Well, Anniversary/Wedding,  Anything Goes, and Christmas.

Our sponsor for September is Through the Craft Room Door Magazine. The September prize winner will get a subscription to the magazine.

I chose the Anything Goes theme for this week's card.
Happy Halloween

I was in the mood to make a Halloween card. I used my new Spider Web die and my Cat punch by Stampin' Up! (with the coordinating Stampin' Up! paper). The pumpkin, spider, and EEK are all chipboard stickers from my stash.

Festive Fridays
