Sunday Sketch & Stamp 14: Your Next Stamp

Morning everyone!

It's Sunday again (gosh, the weeks seem to be flying by at the moment!), and so time for a brand new sketch at Sunday Sketch & Stamp, designed by the wonderfully talented Ger:

Karen, my fab boss at Your Next Stamp, has very generously donated one of YNS's gorgeous stamp sets called "Shopper Fhiona" as the prize for this challenge:

The DT at SS&S were very lucky to be given the entire set of YNS Limited Edition Halloween digi stamps to play with for this challenge.  As I said, these are limited edition, and will only be available until 31st October, so if you'd like to purchase some of these fantastic quality digi stamps, hop on over to the Your Next Stamp store right now!

There are 5 different YNS Halloween digi stamps available to buy, but I chose to use the one entitled "Cute Witch".  However, I used my graphics software to flip the stamp into its mirror-image to fit the sketch better.  I coloured her using a mixture of Copics and ProMarkers, and then added some coloured glitter to the tiny black stars in the sky plus the green stars adorning her hat:

There are a few Halloween themed challenges out there at the moment, so I'm going to enter this card into the following:

4. Stamp Something - Halloween Somethings Challenge : Something for Halloween

Make sure you hop on over to Sunday Sketch and Stamp and check out what spooky delights the rest of the DT has made - I promise you won't be disappointed!

TTFN, and thanks for dropping by!
