Spotlight On: October Stamp of the Month Oddball Girl Mummy

It’s that time of the week again. I’ve got my spotlight out and I’m shining it on another amazing stamp – this month’s “Stamp of the Month” offer. Each month a stamp (or stamp and the coordinating die where available) is offered with a fantastic discount. You’ve got until the end of 31st October 2020 to grab this month’s offer, and I’m here to show you why you need it. If you already have it, I’m here to remind you why you needed it, and inspire you to get it inky!

Marker Geek Monday: Squidgy Dino Trick or Treater Coloured Pencil Video

Squidgy Dino Trick or Treater Card

He’s so cute! I gave him a little glow from the open doorway. Looks like he’s on his first stop of the night.

Stamps Used: Squidgy Dino Trick or Treater, Fall Sentiment Set

I stamped the image on kraft card before colouring using Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils. I’ve been using a new and cheaper kraft coloured card in my last few coloured pencil posts. I wanted to see how well it would perform, and honestly I’m not in love. Hopefully I can get hold of some other papers I’ve had my eye on, as I’m still searching for a real favourite. This one worked okay, but it doesn’t really have enough “tooth”to be able to layer as much as I would like, or to achieve the coverage I’m looking for without using solvent.

Wonderful Wednesday: Coloured Pencil Little Bits Mummy Video

Little Bits Mummy Halloween Card

As much as I love creating larger stamped scenes, sometime it’s just fun to play with a smaller area. Little Bits stamps are perfect for this!

Stamps Used: Little Bits Mummy, Frankie & Ghosty , Little Bits Haunted House Outdoor Decor (alternative: Littles Mummy & The Tombstone)

I masked and stamped the stamps from two sets to create my scene on Kraft card before colouring with Caran D’Ache Pablo coloured pencils. Alternatively there is a stamp that gives you a similar complete scene. All are linked above.
