Day 12 of 12 Days of Creepmas! Poe Ho Ho

Greetings! Welcome to Day 12 of the Smeared and Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas! Can you believe that this is it? Well, I won't keep you waiting...here's my project.

I had been wanting to do some sort of Santa Poe throughout this whole celebration....so I saved him for last! I used Poe from Smeared Ink's Quoth the Raven (one of my all time favorite sets from SI), as well as the fantastic wings. The hat I drew myself (rather quickly)...and shoot! I meant to add a bell or a pom pom, and I forgot.

I embossed the wings with a really pretty glitter embossing powder. Wanted Mr. Poe to look a wee bit angelic. ;) I only glued the portion behind Poe, so that the wings would be raised off of the card.

Here you can see the glitter better. My sentiment I made from an alphabet stamp from....guess who? Yup. Martha freakin' Stewart. I love this set. And the snowflake I had laying around....Check out his scarf? I know he always wears an ascot, but he wanted to be a bit more festive, so I made him a scarf with washi tape. I hope you enjoyed all of my offerings for the month. Thank you so much for all of the wonderful comments you have left me. They are really so appreciated. Have a Merry, Merry Creepmas!!!

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!
