Hello and happy Friday! I have a Halloween card to share with you today using this week's SCS sketch challenge. It was the 300th sketch, so in honor of that they are giving away lots of prizes! You still have time to make a card and enter.... Check it out!
I used a card kit, that I received in the mail earlier this week, from my Secret Sister. Actually she is not really a secret, since I am the hostess of the swap! But I'm keeping my knowledge to myself until the reveal.... There were tons of goodies in this kit: DP, CS, embossed backgrounds, 2 stamps, gems, ribbons, and a container of fancy brads. I have enough goodies left to make many more cards....
Just a word about the secret sister card kit swaps.... This is round 3 and they are so much fun; if you ever get the chance to be in one, go for it. I have had fabulous secret sisters; I tell you, they really know how to coordinate all the goodies to make outstanding kits. I will confess that I do have a problem with the card kits though...I want to hoard them! I have them all in a big plastic bin and I love to just look at them! kidding! I have decided to change my ways though and start using them...that way someone else can enjoy them too, in the form of a card.
I wasn't really sure how to color Riley, so I looked in the SCS gallery to get some ideas. I just went with varying shades of the same brown pencil. I did add a bit of glitter and some felt clouds and a bat brad to the image panel. I think my coloring came out okay. I really like the images I see that have a lot of "white" or lighter areas within the colored area, so I am trying to work on my technique.
