Welcome to the very first Smeared and Smudged Blog Hop! We have some amazing talent throughout this entire hop, so please try to take a peek at everyone’s rad creations!
My wonderful friend Donna sent me a couple stamped images from the Kraftin’ Kimmie collection that she knows I covet. I know! It was so sweet of her! This is Drucilla. I had the best time coloring this crazy chic in! Take a looksy!
I so love her! Her voodoo doll reminded me of Lilo’s doll Smudge from Lilo and Stitch. So I had to color this doll using similar colors. I colored the rest of the image after I used the doll as a jumping off point. Here’s a close-up.:
I colored the whole image using colored pencils and then I chalked the edges. Lotsa “smudging” goin’ on here! Ain’t she crazy and cute? Please click on the pics to see them bigger. I tried to add a lot of dimension with the colors I chose. Look at her eyes! I used some blue in them to make them rounder and look whiter!
Here’s the inside. Nothing crazy. The sentiment speaks volumes I think! “A Girl’s Gotta Do What a Girl’s Gotta Do!” ‘Nuff said!
I really need to get my paws on some of these stamps. There’s a few I really love, and this is one of them. I want to color her in so many different ways!
I needed to go wacky with the patterns. Bright colors, and patterns that you wouldn’t necessarily think work together… but here, they do! This card is a bit more lighthearted than what I usually do for Smeared and Smudged, but I think it totally works for our group! She’s pretty twisted, like many of us are (me included!)!
So, hop along now! Below is the list of all the blogs to visit. Maybe you’ll be inspired to join our crazy and fab group! Enjoy the hop! Peace, Love, and Vampires!
