Wacky title, huh? It needs to be, because not only am I bringing you the latest StampInsanity Challenge, but today is also the monthly Smeared & Smudged Member Blog Hop! Shall we get this party started?
This week’s StampInsanity Challenge (#55) is Flower Power. I went a route that I’m betting you may not have pictured. As promised yesterday, I broke out the Distress Inks once again and colored up Vampire Henry. Take a look!
I just didn’t feel like goin’ with the pretty route. I was inspired by Henry’s rose, so I broke out my DCWV Immortal Love Stack and used the rose paper for my background.
Here’s a close up of my coloring job. I right like the way this came out!
Of course, the senti is also from StampInsanity! I LOVE this sentiment! Time for you to play along with the Ward 2 Groovy Gurlz! Show us your Flower Power!
And on to the next…
Today is a sad day for me. It marks the 1 year Anniversary of the death of Pete Steele…the frontman to my favorite band, Type O Negative. I still can’t believe he’s gone. I had really wanted to do a Type O Negative based project for today’s blog hop…especially since the theme was to use metal. But I couldn’t do it. I thought about different things…but nothing gelled properly. And I wanted it to be truly awesome.
So, I abandoned the idea (for now) and decided to make complimentary earrings to go with the pendant I made yesterday.
I started off once again with my bleached chipboard from Technique Tuesday and stamped my Sugar Skulls from Bombshell Stamps on them.
Cue the Distress Inks once again…as well as the Amazing Glaze. Lots of it! For my metal requirement, I hung me pretty little discs with a chain and added some metal enameled charms.
I didn’t stamp an image on the back this time ’round. Instead, I just inked it with Vintage Photo. More Glaze. So…??? What do you think of my Sugar Skull set? I really like how lightweight the earrings are. For those of you with stretched out holes, these are purrrfect for you!
But now, it is time for you to go. You have a lot of wonderful blogs to visit, so you better start hopping! The Ward 2 Groovy Gurlz are listed on my sidebar. The rest of the Smeared & Smudged hoppers are listed below. Happy hopping! Have an inspiring day!
