Day 8 of 31 Days of Halloween: Calaveras Fiesta Pendant

Welcome to day 8! I am combining today's Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween post with the new Muse Monday post over at the Bombshell Stamps Blog. What's Muse Monday? Well, you'll need to visit the Bombshell Blog to find out!

I made this pendant using the Calaveras Fiesta set. I had a piece of wood that I painted white, then I stamped the skeleton with Versa Craft ink. I added a bit of color, then added the tassels and embossed them.

Can you see the bits of glitter in the embossing powder on the top of the pendant? I used my Crafter's Workshop Mini Punchinella stencil with alcohol inks on the side.

This was fun (and quick!). I have been itching to make some pendants...and I have a few more planned for the month. But now it's time for you to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers. They are all posted on my side bar. And don't forget to visit the Bombshell Blog to get the scoop on Muse Monday! Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic 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!
