Day 16 of 31: Creepy Lil Grumpies

Hello and welcome Day 16! Today's project was made for the Smudgy Antics challenge, which is to use only Smeared Ink images. So I busted out the Creepy Lil Grumpies.

Look at these adorable little trick or treaters. I always have so much fun with these guys, whether it's Halloween or not.

I colored them with my alcohol markers. I think I enjoyed coloring the ghost the most. Although he isn't bright and colorful, I like using the pale, almost-not-there colors.

So hop along, my friends, and visit the rest of the 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!
