Sweet2Repeat Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sweet2Repeat Blog Hop for the August release. You should have got here from Martha and there is a full list of on the SugarPea Designs blog






I didn't get a chance to use the cute Bewitched set during the release, so it didn't take me long to ink them up and have some fun colouring.



Since doing my last Copic colouring class, I've really been trying to work on my no line colouring, so I inked up the witch on her broomstick with some Memento Desert Sand and got colouring away. It's not easy, but I really really love the challenge of trying to work out the shadows and highlights and the end result makes me feel I'm heading in the right direction.



Once I'd finished with my Copics, I added some details in with my Polychromos pencils. They work very well together and the wonderful Marika Rahtu, who sadly no longer does videos, has some great tutorials on her YT channel.

I die cut the witches out and to add some interest in the back panel, I cut out some stars using the Sugar Cut - Star Dust die on some blue card stock and adhered a panel of yellow behind.

I then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and popped up the witch and her hat with foam tape before I attached the panel onto a white card blank.




Thank you so much for stopping by today :)

Your no line colouring is fantastic Ruth! All your practicing is really paying off, it looks so good! And I love the addition of the pencil work, as I always think it adds something extra. The star background is a perfect finishing touch, super sweet card and yet again a reminder I need to do more than I do with my colouring xx
