Just Us Girls #161 - Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone!  It's Saturday, my favorite day of the week!  Not only because it's a day off from work and the start of the weekend, but because it's the start of a new challenge over at Just Us Girls!  And this is my favorite week....sketch challenge week!  Lynn has a fabulous sketch for us with room for lost of interpretation.
 I just love sketches like these!  I chose this large stamp from Impression Obsession that I purchased LAST YEAR and of course never inked up!  I'm glad I got the chance today to use it.  I stamped it in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and then colored just the pumpkin, leaves, boots and mat with copic markers.  Then I sponged some Antique Linen and Tea Dye distress inks around it to tone down the white.  It's mounted on Tangerine Tango paper and then Chocolate Chip.  The bottom of the chocolate piece was cut with an MFT large scallop die.  I then added some faux stitching (not sure I'm liking that).  The pattern paper is from PTI's Autumn Abundance.  I used the Bow Easy to make my bow and added a twine bow.  There are some Star Dust Stickles on the leaves for some sparkle.

I'm also trying to play more at SCS.  That's where all this started for me and I've been neglecting SCS!  So for their Inspiration Challenge, I chose this picture to inspire my stamp choice.

You can see more inspiration from the JUGs DT at these blogs.  We also are welcoming our Guest Designer for November, Jan Del Bone.  

Thanks for stopping by today!

I admire your goal of working more with SCS challenges! You go!!

I, too, have had mojo issues! I have so much stuff, but am too tired to create most nights! We won't give up!!!

Hope school is okay! for me, it's what keeps me pooped! But things are better!
