Another Fun Friday!

Hello!  Rae Ann here for your dose of Friday Fun!  October brings cooler weather finally to my neck of the woods.  I am loving the cool temperatures and lower humidity!  The cool temperatures and our current challenge to add brown or kraft paper to your project has me really feeling autumn!

I used one of the new releases, Jack O'Lantern Mane, for this project.  I found this awesome digital paper in my stash and thought it fit the challenge and the image perfectly.  A few pretty embellishments and it was done! 

You can pop over to the challenge and play along for a chance to win Sami Stamps prizes.  Just make sure to use a Sami Stamps image to be eligible.

Fun Friday with Emily!

Hello everyone and welcome back to another Fun Friday!
Today I'm sharing an awesome card featuring one of our newest Spooky Unicorns!
I love this Mushrooms and Bats image and how you could take it in either the spooky route or the soft and gentle route.  I tried to do a little cross of both by putting the card into a dark scene with the large super moon coming up behind her, but also giving her a playfully colored mane and some shimmer.

For this card, I used my Prismacolor pencils.  With so much coloring and dimension, I find pencils are best for me since I have a lot more control over where the color goes.  And I can use a blending solution to smooth everything out once I'm done if I wish.

Once everything was colored, I layered the whole panel onto a black piece cut to the same size, but shifted them so they criss-cross.  Then layered these panels onto a Kraft mat that I added some brown colored embossing paste through a dot stencil onto.

The sentiment was white heat embossed right onto my unicorn panel and that finished the card! 

You have a little bit of time left to join in our current challenge to use brown or Kraft cardstock on your card!  I hope you will join in!!

Thanks for visiting!! <3
