New STitD and WW! Don'tcha Love Acronyms?

Greetings! Welcome to a jam packed Wednesday. I've got some new challenges to share with you, and I hope you are excited to check them out. My first is for A Step in the Dark. We are sponsored by Aurora Wings, which is a company I have fallen head over heels for. I used Owl Masquerade for my 6x6 mini page.

Is that a stunning image or what? I loved coloring it. I used alcohol markers and colored pencils. Plus a bit of Stickles and Liquid Pearls.

I also broke out my Scales stencil from Dreamweaver Stencils. Applied Pumice Stone Distress Ink using a stencil brush. Then I applied the Amsterdam Flourish with Pearlescent Embossing Paste.

I'll be submitting this piece into the new Haunted Design House challenge. I was very inspired by the photos they posted, so I give you my version of that.

Moving on, I now give you the newest Wicked Wednesday challenge. This week, we are sponsored by Octopode Factory, and the theme is to "Use an Uplifting Sentiment."

This is Tianne the Fairy. I liked using unusual colors for her. My daughter helped me to choose her colors. We really like to make projects together. I used watercolor markers for her. 

Some Stickles and a fun punch helped me jazz up my ATC even more. I hope you'll play along! Please visit the main challenge blogs for Wicked Wednesday as well as A Step in the Dark to see more, and to link up your own project. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
