SugarPea Designs- DT Feature

Hello Everybody, happy Thursday. It's time for another DT feature over at the SugarPea Design Blog for me. I put together yet another fun scene card to share with you all. 
 There was one stamp set from the August release that I've yet had a chance to play with, so today I'm showing you what I came up with.
 I used two different SugarPea stamp sets, Barn to be Wild & the August sweet incentive stamp set, Best of Cluck
Colored using Copic Markers
Cow: C1,C3,R00,R20,R30
Pig: R00,R20,R22,R30
Sheep: N1,T3,T5,E30,E50,R20

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps: Wonderful Wednesday Challenge

Hello everyone, welcome to another wonderful Wednesday challenge for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. 
Here is the card I came up with for today. I've been kinda hooked on making scene cards and I'm sure you will all get sick of seeing them real soon but I can't help myself (sorry but not sorry)!

I used the adorable Whimsical Gnomes stamp set to create my magical scene. 
Colored using Copic Markers
I just love how you can merge stamps together to make fun scenes or backgrounds on cards. 
To create my clouds, I just freehanded them using my copic markers (C1,N1). My sky was colored using B00 and B12. I didn't keep track of other colors used, sorry. 

We would for ALL of you to play along in the challenges with us. Your submission can use ANY stamp and can be any theme, any style, any design and it can be a card, a scrapbook page, an altered name it!!
