Day 13 of 31: Poe and his Crows

Greetings! Time for day 13!!! Today I am bringing you a card that uses a FABULOUS Rick St. Dennis image of Edgar Allan Poe, along with the Crows from Dreamweaver Stencils that I shared with you on Thursday. Hey! Did you know that Rick has a new Zibbet Shop? Check it is so organised and FULL of images! Over 400 of them! But first, take a peek at my project, please.

Truth be told, I had this image colored (and shown here) some time ago. But I never had it put onto a proper project. I knew I needed to do so this month! It went together so quickly.

I really enjoyed making him green. Zombie flesh looks good on him, no? As far as the stenciling, I simply used a small round stencil brush (from Dreamweaver) to apply my ink in a circular motion. Took all of 1 minute. I used Versa Craft ink (Tsukineko), which is such a wonderfully rich black.

I broke out this fabulous green paper that I had used for a Bombshell card at the beginning of the month. I loved the gradation of color that was similar to what I did with my Spectrum Noir markers. I hope you have enjoyed my rather simple piece for today. Though the coloring took quite some time, it was done a while ago. Please be sure to visit Rick's new Zibbit shop, as well as the rest of the Smeared & Smudged Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-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!
