Off to Wool Gathering…but first

I wanted to share this adorable new digital image from Sweet n’ Sassy stamps called Pick of the Harvest. I also did today’s sketch, SSS22, from their Sweet Spot.

SNS PickofHarvest There was an added twist to the sketch…use red/black/tan. Isn’t she sweet standing on her tippy toes to reach that apple. It’s all colored with Prismacolor pencils with little highlights using an Inkssentials white gel pen.

here’s the inside SNS PickInside

I drew in the apples along the bottom and colored them with Copics.

So, yes, I’m off to Wool Gathering! I’ll be spinning and sharing the llamas alllllll day! Answering the same questions alllllll day!! YES, they spit! No, they’re LLAMAS not Alpacas!

This is some of what I’ll be spinning today! Shadow, dyed with kool-aid! WG ShadowDyed 09

Have a Beautiful day!!

Love the spotlighting and your row of hand-drawn apples on this sweet card, Dawn!
Hey! I got an idear! Have someone video you doing your wool gathering/spinning so we can see how you do it! Wouldn't that be fun?

Love the photo of your roving! I tried spinnning several years ago, but just never got the hang of it. I love looking at all those beautiful colors of roving, tho--think I'll have to take up needle felting or something so I can acquire yet another set of craft supplies!! Hope you had fun at wool gathering. Looking forward to your next card, as well!!!
