i hope you all had a great weekend.

this week at the Bitten by the Bug 2 we have a sponsor:
The Stamping Boutique
click here for the link if you want to check them out.

i tried my best with this project and my apologies to those who have mastered the art which i just mutilated with my inexpertise.

(photo heavy) 
 this was my first try but i decided to add some grass or something 
below the fence.

i used a MS punch and border to add these details.

much better here right? :)

i then added a frame, but the wrong one. :( for this challenge i had to use a frame from "happy hauntings", ooops! --sorry heather.

and the beware sentiment is from My Pink Stamper latest release

here is my scarecrow in all its glory, :)

now, if i tried, you can too.
go ahead and participate in the challenge.
you can see now you do not have to be a pro. just have to be brave and try something new. and then publish it for the wide world to see, hehe

notes... i do not own any fancy markers and all i had was a crayola watercolors set and that is what i used to color this image. i also used watercolor paper i had in my stash.

click on this logo above and it will take you to the site so you can participate in the challenge and have fun with us too.
and...if you leave me a link to your project i will then select one for a little surprise from me to you.

thanks for stopping by.

love you all!


  1. What are you apologizing about, Agnes? Your coloring looks just FAB! Love the punched additions, too. Oops about the frame, LOL, but it sure looks adorable in a real one. Love it! xxD

  2. Agnes, Looks great. I just think it's a little eerie in the face.
    It's scary....ahhhh!

    Have a great Day!

  3. CUTE!! I think the coloring turned out Great! I only have crayola markers and crayons to use if I want to color in anything. I don't do enough coloring to buy other kind :).. Scarecrows are my favorite in the Fall. They are so Cute!

    Hugs, Sheena

  6. I think this is great, the coloring turned out fantastic!!! I like how you curved the sentiment, too!!!

  7. I think your coloring looks GREAT! You haven't seen mine (and unless it gets much better, you never!!!)

    Your card is too cute and I love the image of the scarecrow in the pumpkin patch!

  8. I'm still trying to figure out why you're apologizing for such a fabulous creation. It turned out great. I admit I did get a little chuckle out of your frame. Trust me, we've all made mistakes with challenges from time to time. Love the grass you added.

  9. What the heck are you talking about???!! This is fantastic :) Yes, I like the addition of the grass....and your coloring is wonderful. No need for fancy markers, you did just great my friend :) BTW--nice frame, LOL!

  10. Agnes this is Amazing, nothing wrong with it Girlfriend! I still do it the "old fashioned" way too with colored pencils and Mineral Spirits! I also love the grass you added, love the dimension it gives it! You go GF!

    (And so sorry I'm so late in my comments, time just seems to fly these days, don't ya think, lol!)

  11. Oh, this is cute!! I love your coloring and your background paper. I LOVE the MS punch, too. I've never seen it in action before...I guess I'll have to go buy it now. FANTASTIC card, Agnes! I just love it!
