Show Me A Cask

Yet another project for the 12 Days Of Halloween at Simply Betty Stamps! Almost finished with all 12 days! Whoo Hoo!

Today's project is for 11 Leaking Casks. You may have to looks closely to see the number 11 on the orange cask. The cask is shiny and the flash from the camera caused a little glare. You should be able to see the number 11 if you enlarge the photo.

I used all scraps from my stash, for this card. The image is by Simply Betty Stamps. This image is one of my favorites! I colored her with Promarkers. The hair is something new for me. I tried to add the white highlights by using 4 different tip sizes of the fine line Promarkers. The girls on the Simply Betty Stamps DT are so talented with doing hair and I've seen some coloring tutorials they've done, so I wanted to practice and see if I can perfect the technique. I know I have a long way to go to perfect it but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out for my first attempt. What do you think?

I added black pearls to the card, to add some bling. My card layout uses the Sketch at Inspirational Card Sketches. The sentiment is punched from the DP using the modern label and word window punches by Stampin Up.
