Stackers, Pumpkins and Tipple

Judy West at Creative Doodling, had us doing stackers this week. I LOVE stackers and don't know why I stopped doing them. This is the one I did for her challenge:


I don't know where the cat came from. He was just wandering around in my pen and decided he had to get in on the fun. I'm obviously not much of a "realistic" artist HAHA!

I did the pumpkins first using Copics and colored pencils. They really looked pretty before I added all those tangles and all that coloring work disappeared.



After I finished, I had to go back and look at the one I did a year ago.
Tangles have improved a bit, cat, well, not so much!








Also, The Diva Dared us to use Tipple. I LOVE tipple now that I have used it a few times. I didn't like it at first, but things do change. I was working on a bookmarker for my grandson and just added some to the background:

    1. Thank you Daniele. I hope he likes it. I'm not sure children read as much as we did in our time though. You don't need a bookmarker for an iPad!

    1. Thank you Zoe. The letters are actually traced from a set of letters from the craft store. Wish I were even close to that talented :)

    1. Thanks Annemarie. I love to read and use all kinds of scraps for bookmarkers. I should probably make myself one. I never think to do something for myself!
