Madness: Day 31 of 31 Days of Halloween

Happy Halloween!!!!!! What a fang-tastic month! I haven't gotten to do much in the gory department, so I decided that today, I should end the month with a bang.

I used Madness from Aurora Wings. Love this crazy fabulous image. I especially love the eyeballs in the grape bunches. I colored the image with alcohol markers and watercolor markers.

I only used some ink for the main part of the card....I would never want to take away from this image. I am entering my card into the Aurora Wings' "All Gored Up" challenge.

I hope you have all had as much fun as I did this month. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic Halloween!!!!!

You may not have done gory but you've shared creepy this month, as well as cute. I agree this image has a gore effect - with the eyeballs and the bleeding finger! Creeptastic colors.

All about keeping the background simple for the image to pop. Wonderful wonderful addition as the eyeballs make. It is always a good party when eyeballs are added. Thank you so much for all your wonderful techniques I hope that your luck rubs off on me

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!
