Sketch Saturday By The Skin of My Teeth



Had a try at Sketch Saturday this week but didn't start it until late last night and then finished it of this evening. The sketch looked very tempting to have a play with and I think I will use it again to do other cards with. I just hope I'm not too late to enter now.
I gave mine a Halloween theme using this PSX stamp I've had for a few years , but I really like her. She was stamped in black pigment ink and clear embossed to make her raised and shiny. I then watercoloured the image using a mixture of blues and a hint of purple for the sky. It is actually more purple and a little more magical looking than has shown up on the photo. The spider and bats on the orange circle are from Penny Black as is the "Boo" on the green circle. The Pumpkin on the yellow circle is a Hero Arts stamp. I used a glue pad to stamp Penny Black spiders webs in the corners of the card and added glitter. All the circles are cut with nestabilities dies.

I love this one too Louby! Very SPOOKY! It's a great sketch, I agree with you on that and I'll probably use it again too, it'll work well for lots of cards. Love all the bats and spiders and the sparkly cobwebs in the corners. The main image is wonderful and I love how you coloured the sky. Chris x
