Sneak peek and todays challenge

This is another great image that's being release Nov. 1st at Clear Dollar Stamps. The lampost has great sentiments that can go on the sign and cute little animals that can be place on or around it. I made this card for the design team color challenge - tempting teal, going gray and mellow moss. I colored the lampost with copics and embossed it. Then I used my brayer and sponges with several shades of blue to make the sky. I mounted it on layers of mellow moss and black. topping it with a decorative swirl. I stamped the sentiment in tempting teal on going gray layered with black. The dp is from basic grey layered with black. The card base is tempting teal.
This is for today's sketch challenge. The images are from Clear Dollar Stamps. I stamped the tree and used a sharpie to add some length to both ends. I stamped the squirel and added him to the inside of the tree hole. Then I stamped the sentiment on pumpkin pie and oval punched it, layering it with a chocolate chip oval. The waving squirrel was stamped and colored with copics. I mounted the three images on basic grey squares matted with real red. The bg is basic grey and is divided with pumpkin pie ribbon.
