Day 10 of 12: Creepmas Grumpie

Greetings and Salutations! Welcome to Day 10 of the Smeared and Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas. Today's project features a Grumpie from Smeared Ink. I love these guys.

I love coloring this guy. I was happy to find some holographic light bulbs in my stash. They work really well in this card.

I colored the Grumpie with Spectrum Noirs and Copics. I was going to give the grumpie a bit of a glow from the lights, then I realized that they weren't plugged in! Which, I guess is better for the Grumpie.

Please be sure to visit the rest of the Jolly Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!

Fantastic creation! The lights to the right of your grumpie are such a fun detail.

Ps. Is the background marbled? I love using marble paint (although I never get those fancy patterns that others somehow manage to create).

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!
