Curtain Call Act 42 & Sweet Sunday Sketch 80

Happy Friday friends! If you haven't seen my earlier post about my email account being hacked, please scroll down! Some of you were in my Yahoo address book and may get a suspicious email from me, so please don't reply to it. I have changed my password and everything appears to be working fine now, but I will be cautious using that account for a while.

In other news, I have a new card for today for two challenges ending very soon. I just had to find time to play the Curtain Call Color Challenge this week! These colors had me thinking whimsical and Halloween, as you can see. I paired the colors up with this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch.

Okay, so I don't usually do cute and whimsical, but I could not resist this little witch! Isn't she darling? I stamped her onto Rustic White cardstock with Dark Chocolate Ink, then stamped her again onto the orange and green cardstock and paper pieced her face, hands, and clothes. I added some shading with my watercolor pencils, which I haven't used forever! It was a lot of fun and I hope I'll have a chance to do it again soon.

The word "wicked" was stamped with letters from a Doodlebug Design alphabet. I also used a spider web stamp from Inkadinkadoo to make the orange patterned paper, and PTI's Distressed Stripes to make the little block of green paper. Everything was sponged with Creamy Brown chalk ink.

Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Rustic White, Dark Chocolate), Bazzill (Mango, Guacamole)
Stamps: Studio G (witch), Inkadinkadoo (spider web), Papertrey Ink (Distressed Stripes), Doodlebug Design (alphabet)
Ink: Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate), Clearsnap (Creamy Brown)
Accessories: Derwent watercolor pencils, Copic markers, buttons, DMC floss

Here's a peek at the inside, where I added strips of orange and green stamped with the Distressed Stripes and another spider web in one corner.

I really like the fun and simple design, and I love how the witch turned out.

I had hoped to squeeze in one more card today, but my parents are here for one more day so I should come out of my craft cave and be sociable! I hope you have a great Friday and a fabulous start to your weekend!

Adorable! Glad you mentioned you stamped her hands her face...I thought they were colored in. Looks great and easier!!!

Hated seeing about your e-mail hack!!! I've heard of this one before, so I didn't fall for it. Stinks though. I hope you don't have any lasting effects!

Love this litte green girl! Your paper piecing is fantastic and, once again, you've rocked a difficult sketch. I love the inside with the web and those stripes! Hope all is back to normal with your account--so sorry you had to go through all that. :-(
