A "Sweet" Whimsie Doodles Sneak!

(Mom if you don't want to see the Halloween card I am going to give you this year then
STOP reading and exit right now!! LOL!! )

Today was one of those fortuitous days when things happened to line up just right. I knew I had to post the sneak peek for Whimsie Doodles before tomorrow's release but I also had to post my Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch card today. So, I decided to combine two assignments into one card!! And then in addition to that, the card I made also fits this week's challenge at the Digital Tuesday Challenge blog! How lucky is that??



Here is the today's sketch that you can use for this week's challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. This week is not sponsored, so there aren't any prizes to be awarded, but we would still love for you to play along.




And here is the card I made that combines the above sketch with the soon-to-be released Voodoo Mummy and the Digital Tuesday challenge to include a heart on your project.

The striped DP is from MM and the Boo paper is from DCWV. I used my Recollections black cardstock as the base and matting for the image.


To create the brick wall that the Voodoo Mummy is sitting on, I masked the mummy image and used a background stamp from Stampin' Up with Really Rust SU ink. I shaded it with a little of c1 colored Copic Marker. The mummy is also colored with Copics. Coloring things that are white can be a challenge, but in this case I added some shades of tan and peach to give a skin color and also a worn, dirty look on the bandages. Then for a little pop of color I made the safety pin orange, the heart red and the button eye green!! I just love Melyssa's images!!


I thought the gauze that I added as the two accent strips next to the main image was a fun idea. I was trying to mimic the mummy's gauze wrap! Not sure I did, but I tried!! :-)


Now, for YOUR assignments....

Please go to the Whimsie Doodles Blog and leave a comment for Melyssa. She is going to pick one lucky winner from the comments on each of the sneak peeks to win that image. Good Luck with that!! Remember that all three images we have shown you this week go on sale beginning tomorrow (Thursday, Oct. 1st.)

Also head over to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog and see what the rest of the DT has done with this sketch. Some of them created a second card with a bonus sketch that Arlana did, so there is lots of eye candy to look hat.
And if you haven't heard about the Digital Tuesday Challenge blog you should visit there too. This is the first time that I have played along, but I definitely plan on going back there again!


Keep scrolling down to see the post I made earlier this morning

Have a Sweet Wednesday and may good things happen fortuitously to fill your bucket today!!
