It's been a cold, blustery weekend. BUT! It's been warmer in the mountains west of Colorado Springs than in the Springs. Yesterday, I left home to go to an Archiver's class (10 Little Tags - really fun!) and it was 36-degrees and sunny. Before I got half-way down the mountain I had driven into fog/rain and it had dropped to 19-degrees. Fortunately, I got home before it all turned to black ice. It's been a mess this morning!
Did you know that October is National Book Month? And Oct 6th is Mad Hatter Day? Neither did I until the 3rd October challenge from the SCS Wish RAK group.
Challenge #3 is a sketch challenge, but in honor of Mad Hatter day I had to get out my Oxford Impression CLASSIC ALICE set. The background is the same technique from Technique Junkies that I used for my Fluffle Vampire: CREATEX CREATIONS. Createx is an airbrush paint. I'm not sure what makes it different from other paints but these ridges only seem to appear with Createx. This time I used gold and red, which is always stunning on black glossy paper. The Alice images are stamped in Memento and then watercolored with my aqua-painter and SU! re-inkers. I think it keeps the pen and ink drawings "original" - even if they weren't originally colored.
Stamps: Oxford Impression CLASSIC ALICE
Paper: SU! Basic Black & Real Red, glossy black card stock, Neenah Solar White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: SU! reinkers, aqua pen, and nail-head rhinestones.

I've been working on a lot of "future" projects that I can't share right now. I have some deadlines looming right now but should be back to the "daily" post soon. Stay warm! (or cool!)
