Blog Hoppin’ with Inky Antics!!

Published by at 4:00 am under Blog Hop,Inky Antics,Touch Twin Markers

Welcome to Inky Antics’ Autumn Critters Blog Hop! Perhaps you’ve come from the Inky Antics’  blog.

I’ve used the 11065SC Scarecrow & Friends Clear Set to create this card.    I had so many ideas for coloring the darlin’ scarecrow that I finally just had to “settle” on one color scheme and tell my coloring ideas to “shhhhhhh!” at that point!   (Fall Fun overload??)

I’ve popped up three of the cute little crows for added dimension, and added natural raffia as a knotted bow and extra “filler” in the sleeves & pants legs.   Seems like Fall is the best time of year for me to check on that everlasting stash of raffia for a “natural” embellishment.   The sketch is from the SCS Dirty Dozen DDSKETCH1011 challenge.   Seemed perfect for this image!

The blog hop starts today (October 26) and ends on Sunday, October 30th at midnight Central time. Please visit each DT members’ blog to view their projects and leave a comment for each designer.  The more you comment, the better your chances are to win.  (Limit one comment per blog, please).  One person’s name will be drawn at random to receive both of the clear sets used in this hop. The winner’s name will be announced on the Inky Antics blog next Monday (October 31 – Halloween!), so remember to stop back and see if you’ve won!     As soon as I’ve spotted the winner on the Inky Antics blog, I’ll share it here as well.   Just be sure to check!

Your next stop will be our talented Debbie Fisher’s blog!
