Vampire Shy 4 Step Card

Hello Friends! We have a week left till Halloween. Today I am sharing another card I made using a Sasayaki Glitter Image that I was able to color from the October 15th New Release. This Cutie is called "Vampire Shy." The original image includes Shy and his House of Horrors and Bats, the background with the moon, trees, clouds and dead grass was all hand drawn by me. The outside of the card is about as simple as I could get, as I was most interested in highlighting this ADORABLE image.
 
I did accent the outside with some random Halloween I had left over from what I believe was a DCWV autumn paper stack. and then used some foam tape to cut out a bat with my Cricut.  I colored this image using Prismacolors and Low Odour Thinner taking advantage of my favorite Halloween color combo. Green, Purple, Orange, and Black. 
Along with a simple front, comes a very fun inside. I am all about fancy fold cards and this one is one of my all time favorite folds. 
I got the inspiration from this post in  Norma's Blog which is one of my FAVORITE blogs to follow. I used her template, changed the measurements to make it a 5.5 in card and set up the template in Illustrator to make an SVG that my Cricut to cut out for me so there were no errors. It seems like it turned out great!
 
Here are a list of challenges that I entered this card into.
 
And here is the original image I colored for Sasayaki Glitter Digital Stamps

Julia Spiri Scalloped Circle Easel Card

Hi All!
Today I am sharing a project I made using this "Mask Girl" stamp from Julia Spiri's Digital Stamp Shop. I used to not be into the color purple, but over the last few years, it has really grown on me, and I thought purple would be just fantastic on this image. 

I colored this girl with my Spectrum Noir alcohol pens then I accented it with stickles glitter. 
The card base is from another project I'm working on and will hopefully share with you all in the near future.  The lace and ribbons and green stick-on gems are all random finds from our local Walmart. and I accented with some Mulberry roses from Hobby Lobby as well as a couple handmade roses from your's truely. 
Here's a little closer shot of the card and image.

I am entering my image in the following challenges:

I hope you all are inspired by my work! Have a Great Day!!

Today I thought I would share with you all some images that I have colored from the coloring classes I have taken online from Kit and Clowder. Every month Alyce does a project class for markers and a project class for pencils. If you enjoy my coloring, you will be happy to know that most all my techniques I have learned from Kit and Clowder classes and it would be easy for you to learn too!! 
Here are some of the projects I have done.

This is the February 2016 Pencil Class

This is the August 2016 Markers Class

This is the August 2016 Pencil Class

I have subscribed to the monthly classes as well as some of her technique classes. The best part of all her classes is that once you purchase a class, all the content is downloadable and able to be done at your own pace. So If you are ready to get started with your coloring, pop on over and sign up!  On another positive note, My blog has reached over 2500 views! Thank you all so much for reading!
I have been absent a lot lately, still creating, but just not inspired to write about it, but I plan on being much more faithful so look forward to more inspiration often!
