Sunflowers

The C.C. Designs September release is oh so cute!  The entire release is available now in the C.C. Designs store!  Today I decided to ink up the new Roberto's Rascals Nancy with Sunflowers.


Sometimes I think an image is so damn cute that I just don;t want it to have to complete with any patterned papers.   It's such a cute little scene all by itself so I simply matted the image and kept is CAS.  


I stamped the image with Momento tuxedo black ink and colored the image with copics.  I added some depth to the shading using black and brown General's pastel chalk pencils.  I used a white gel pen to add the polka dots to the patches on her knees.

C.C. Designs September Release Showcase

OK, I'm saying it.   This is my FAVORITE image from the newest C.C. Designs release!  Introducing Roberto's Rascals Scarecrow Henry!   


Now, I'm also going to say that I absolutely LOVE that die that I used to die cut the image. It's in the new C.C. Designs Cutter Make a Card #9 Autumn!   


I colored my image with copics and brown and black General's pastel chalk pencils.  I paper pieced the patches on his clothing and his shirt.  I used a white gel pen to add the freckles to his cheeks.

Fairy Twila

I am a huge fan of the Roberto's Rascals line of stamps at C.C. Designs!  Each month I look forward to the new release images and I was not disappointed with the latest release! Check out the sweet new Roberto's Rascals Fairy Twila!

I love her little face and it's fun to color and dimension to it to give her a little turned up nose and round cheeks.    I paired the image with a sentiment from the Magical Wishes Sentiment stamp set.  I added a couple of enamel dots from the Little Man Enamel Dots set to the sentiment strip.  


I used a white gel pen to add the freckles to her cheeks and used a clear Wink of Stella glitter marker to add the shimmer to her dress.  
I chose another sentiment from the Magical Wishes Sentiments stamp set for the inner sentiment.

SSSC283 - Undying Love

While I hate to see summer winding down, I do love that with the beginning of fall comes all of the Halloween stamps and patterned papers which I love!   In  that spirit, I decided to play along with this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #283 with the SugarPea Designs Undying Love stamp set.  

I chose some patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Halloween 6x6 paper pad and paired it with some MFT natural and steel grey grey stock.  I stamped the images and sentiments in MFT black licorice hybrid ink.   


I paper pieced his suit coat.  I colored him with copics and used a black pastel chalk pencil to add some "dirt" to his face and clothing.


I did the same for girl.

If you would like to make the Undying Love stamp set your own, you can find it HERE.


Here is the sketch:
