OCC Coloring Challenge

Hi everyone! Hope you had fun trick-or-treating last night. Our youngest had a blast dressing up in her cat costume. She looked adorable!

Sorry that I've been a little MIA, but it's been a really busy week. In addition to getting ready for Halloween, earlier this week my SIL had her baby!! I'm the proud new aunt to a baby girl. My SIL and the baby are both doing well...other than she evidently has her nights and days mixed up with sleep (don't they all?!). So anyway, enough babbling and onto the OCC stuff....

Today's challenge is to show us your favorite way to color (gamsol magic, copics, watercoloring, etc.)...or just pull out a stamp that you enjoy coloring. Be sure to check the OCC Blog for all the details on the challenge and to see the winner of last week's giveaway. Our special guest designer on the OCC this week is my bud, Lori McAree...so stop by to see her sample as well.

My card is for Laurie Schmidlin's daughter. You can see the post HERE on the Need a Lift Forum of SCS. It's very sad and I can't imagine what they're all going through. Please keep Laurie and her daughter in your thoughts and prayers. We love ya, Laurie! {{hugs}}

I followed Beate's Weekend Sketch WSC64. The main image was stamped in Versamark onto white CS, colored with Prisma Pencils, and then blended with Gamsol. You can see the Gamsol Magic technique HERE on SCS. The Tweetie Pie image is from Whipper Snapper Designs, and the yummy polka-dot ribbon is from Taylored Expressions. The red scallop oval is up on dimensionals, and then the main image is up on a second layer. I made the sentiment on the computer, punched it out with SU's word window punch, and popped it up on dimensionals. The scallop border was done with a Martha Stewart border punch that I bought at Michael's. The DP is just some leftover scraps, and I don't have the name anymore...sorry!
