7 of 12 Days of Creepmas: Dilly Beans Traditional Colors

Hello my creepy loving friends! Welcome to the 7th day of the Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas. It's also Friday, so that means that there is a new Dilly Beans challenge! This week, it's Traditional Christmas Colors.

I used Monster's Candy Garland. Yeah, he's a Halloween image, but I thought the skeleton heads looked like popcorn...and i have been wanting to use him for a while. I think he came out pretty cute! Here's a close up.

I used watercolor markers for the entire image. My daughter, Rhiannon helped me chose where the colors should go. I love making projects with my kids. She also chose the Stickles I used for the background.

There you have it! I hope you have been enjoying the 12 days so far! Please be sure to visit the rest of the Jolly Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. And be sure to visit the Dilly Beans gals over at the challenge blog. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!

Alison, I love this little zombie boy. He's cute. Great card too.
He is brilliant as a Creepmas character! So cute!

Great card Alison. Amazing how you can change the purpose of a card with the right colors and sentiment. He looks just as good celebrating Christmas as he does proclaiming it time for Halloween!
Hiya Alison, loving this, great image and colouring.

Ho ho ho how fun this is! :) Oh I thought this was a new Creepmas image by Dilly Beans. :P I think it works just as well for Creepmas as for Halloween (or maybe even better for Creepmas?). The way you coloured it makes it very Creepmassy.

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!
