Vintage Halloween with Cicely!
Saturday, August 13, 2011
Good morning! It's that time again, time for another new sketch at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge (WMSC60). This week's sketch is designed by the lovely Kelly Schirmer. I love this sketch.
It's the first chance I've had to play with my Halloween stamps. I just love Cicely at Halloween by Waltzingmouse Stamps, she's perfect for coloring, even though I'm painfully slow at it!!
I colored her with acrylic paints on a separate piece of card and cut her out, I did the same with the pumpkin (twice for a little added dimension). I used a glue pen on her hat, cloak and shoes and sprinkled with black glitter, leftover from last Halloween! The stars are from Midnight Feast by Waltzingmouse Stamps, stamped in black ink at the top and Antique Linen at the bottom. Oh I added a little swirl coming from her wand from the Flourishes - Scallops and Dots set.
The label I stamped using Very Vintage Labels No.18 by Waltzingmouse Stamps in VersaMagic Persimmon and Pink Grapefruit. The sentiment is from Cicely at Halloween.
I'm pretty happy with how she turned out, she really came to life!! and I had fun! Pop over to the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge to see what the rest of the Mischief Makers and WMS DT came up with! Don't forget to play along to be in with a chance of winning a stamp set of your choice. Have a great weekend! : )
