Winter is Just Around the Corner...

Hello Friends!

I know it's still October but...winter is coming.

The Color of the Month at Imagine is Pebble Grey (or gray whichever you prefer) and for some reason that brought to mind the peaceful quite of winter show showers that will blanket much of Indiana in the coming months.  If you've never seen snow falling in the grey of dawn or evening then you don't know the beauty of winter.  It is such a breath taking sight to behold.

While this card doesn't capture the full effect of a snowfall it is a fair representation and almost makes me long for a snow covered evening....almost ;)  LOL!!

I wanted to add a bit more to this card so I also stamped the inside with ghostly images of pine trees and a bit of pen work.

For full details on how I created this card please visit the Imagine blog here:

Have a wonderful day my inky friends!

InkTober 2018 - Day 17 - Swollen

It's Wednesday!

Hope it's been a good one so far.

Today's InkTober prompt is Swollen.
This instantly came to mind...

Violet Beauregard from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - 1971.

It didn't look right without color so I used a waterbrush and Memento inks to give her the blueberry look ;)  LOL!!

Bad Ideas...

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope you're all having a wonderful day so far.

Today I have another fun card for you - it's a combination of the 31 Days of Halloween plus the newest challenge at Lost Coast Designs Cats and Dogs.  Any card made using a combo of a cat, a dog or both.  Of course the 31 Days of Halloween challenge is still going on as well so I decided to combine them.  What do you think???

That cat is great isn't it?  Perrrrrfect sentiment too huh?

InkTober 2018 - Day 14 - Clock

Welcome back to another day of drawing...

Today's prompt is Clock!

I was very excited about this prompt because I like to collect old clocks and this is one from my collection.  I love that it is in the form of a gothic arch.

Happy Saturday!

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend...

Here is my Inktober sketch of the day...

Prompt - Guarded

My Steampunk dragon guarding the castle.

Witchy Session

Another fun card for the
31 Days of Halloween!

Even witches like to sit around and bitch & gossip and this is proof!

The image Stitch & Bitch was stamped and colored then fussy cut. It was mounted over a background of a die-cut Marigold/Marigold Starstruck Foiled Paper and a selection of Authentique pattern papers. I added the title which I made on my Dymo label maker.
