The Choir

Hi blogging friends.  Did everyone survive Halloween night?  We only had 3 little ones, 2 princesses, and a little monster - the numbers are falling, last year we had around 10 and the year before that around 20.
Of course the weather didn't help either- cold, misty rain, just downright yukky!

Well you know it's Friday, which means another challenge - and this weeks challenge was a sketch.
Here is the sketch we had to follow:

 Pretty simple, but I had to change it up a bit.
I made my image an oval image on a square rather than a square on a square - but hey, it all works out in the end.

For my image I'm using 'the choir' a Christy Croll image in rubber at Stamping Bella. Don't these guys make an adorable choir?

Image was stamped on bella's bestest paper and then coloured using prismacolour pencils and gamsol.
I cut it our using an oval s/b die and then layered this onto a piece of cherry cobbler c/s cut using a scallop s/b oval die. The green layer behind is pear pizzazz and I ran this through my cuttlebug using a Tim Holtz sizzix snowflake embossing folder. Designer paper is from Echo Park - Seaons' Greetings.

Finishing touches - glitter, white flock on the trim of the hat, and glossy accents on the noses.
