Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge has gone MONTHLY!!!

For my Midnight Madness card for this month's challenge, I used one of Priscilla's Froggie digitals.
What a cute image for a Valentine!  I used cardstocks from Canvas Corp.  I distressed all of the edges of each layer of cardstock.  (I recently was given a new distressing tool and had to try it out).  My adorable digi was colored and shaded with copic markers..

Welcome to the very first Midnight Madness Monthly Challenge :)
The challenges will pretty much remain the same, however you will have the whole month to submit your creations. You are welcome to submit up to four projects using the sketches provided as a guide. We may add some fun twists with themes too. The themes are merely for inspirations and not required to play our sketch challenges. We will continue to award the Gold Star and Remarkable awards each month as well as a prize each month. We hope you will have fun working with our sketches and will be inspired by the fabulous Midnight Madness Design Teams Work. I would like to thank this NEW fabulous DT as it is a collaboration of both the Midnight Madness and "priscillastyles" Design Teams. We will all be able to continue to enjoy all their lovely creations this year....wooo hooo.  Have fun and be sure to mark your calendar for the first of every month and come join and check out our NEW Monthly Challenges.

This weeks sketch...it's "YOUR PICK" Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between. Remember to click on the sneak peek button on the side bar for the following weeks sketch each Friday.
Enter one style or both for the next two week.
You are more than  welcome to enter up to 4 cards during the whole month of FEB.
Just have fun and come play with us :)

Pixie Cottage Sketch and or Embossing!

For this week's challenge over at the Pixie Cottage, I used the Pixie Cottage exclusive stamp called  Girly Girl Buffy by Alisa Ramirez. My cardstocks are by Canvas Corp. After stamping my cute little bunny in momento, I then colored and shaded her with my copics. .   Hint:  After coloring with my copics my image was slightly faded in places,  I used my .05 black fine line ZIG marker to highlight the black lines and especially brighten my image's eyes!
