Smeared and Smudged Very Sketchy Challenge for November

The November sketches were fun this month. I was excited to create my card and scrapbook page.

DSCN5904Here’s my card.  The steampunk reindeer is a digi from Smeared Ink, colored with watercolor pencils and highlighted with a Sakura metallic pen.  Although it didn’t show up, the piece of burlap was stamped.  The sentiment was embossed in silver.  The brads are from K & Co.     

Do check out the web site for all the details.


The stitchy doll is a Smeared Ink digi.  I added a little swim suit since she is sitting on Clearwater beach.  The insert background was created with two large stamps from Impression Obsession.  I first stamped Canvas with Sahara Sand ink, then Ornate Floral in Brilliant Blue ink.  I made 4 sets of inked images, cut them out and arranged them a skewed.  I did more stamping on that background by added the letters from the Whimsical Alphas set by Stampin’ Up! in Brilliant Blue, stamped and then over stamped.   I have a piece of denim fabric on there. as well as two SU ribbons.  Lots of the embellishments and the title letters are made with the Cricut.  The flowers are Recollections that I stamped, brushed with a watercolor brush and added a punched center.There are a couple more stamped images, the birds and the sand pail.

The photo is of Kara when she was 5.  Gorgeous hair the color of spun summer sun.
