I Put a Spell on You…Day 21 of 31 Days of Halloween

Only 10 days left of October?! Really??? Ugh. That makes me sad. But, I don’t ant to dwell on that.  Since it’s Friday, I have an all Smeared Ink project to share with you.

I used another from the Creepy Lil Grumpies collection. This is, of course, the witch. She is colored with my beloved pencils.

I kept the card simple, because I love the image, and the background paper. All I did was add the sentiment, which is from the same set.

See how pretty the paper is? Those little dots are pearlized. When it hits the light right, it just shines!

I’m keeping this one short today. But I would like to mention, that I have a Crazy A** Stamp Sale going on. I have updated the original post and taken out all of the items that have sold. Please take a look, as ALL of the stamps listed are at 50% off retail. All the deets are in the post. Thanks for looking. Be sure to hop over to the rest of the Wicked Bloggers. They’re all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a spook-tacular day!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
