Sweet Sunday 138

Happy Thanksgiving to all the Canadian peeps out there!  I hope you're having a great one!  Today Karen has a super challenging sketch for you (SSSC138)!  I have had such a run with allergies this week and a wicked headache and now no voice the only reason I managed to play along and not flake out is my BFF Karen M talked me through it!  
Here is the tip she told me - start with a piece of 5 1/4 x 4 white cs and simply layer you pieces on at the angle - the 3 centre strips are 1 5/8" the 2 corner ones are a little narrower.  Now make sure you cut the strips about 6" long so you can lay them at an angle.  Once they are on trim them down to match your white cs. Simple right?! 



I decided to make a Halloween card with a sweet stamp that arrived in the mail for me from my wonderful friend Leslie.  I inked up Belinda Bones from Kraftin Kimmie's stamps and coloured her with copics. As you can see I had to flip the sketch this week to work with my image.  It doesn't show in the picture but on her bones I used a clear glaze pen; she has healthy bones she must take her calcium?!  The ds paper is and old stash of SU's pumpkin pie layered with elegant eggplant and kiwi kiss cardstock.  For the shading around the image I used versa magic inks in aspen mist & tea leaves. 

Please stop by the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers blogs to see there creations; I am curious to see how they all turned out since we all had comments about the sketch!!  Remember to link your card on Karen's blog if you play along; really with the tip it's do-able


Thanks for stopping by & have a great day
