A Big Welcome Back Plus Wicked Wednesday

Hello! I am excited to write that A Step in the Dark is back from their temporary hiatus. And, since it's Wednesday, I have a new Wicked Wednesday ATC for you. So let's start there....

Wicked Wednesday is sponsored this week by Vera Lane. This is a new company for me, and I am loving the digis they offer. Cute, quirky and fun. I mean, just check out her rad hair! The challenge is "Girly Stuff." I chose to work with this image, because my husband bought me a new camera for Christmas, so I was very inspired!

I colored this gal with my watercolor markers. I found this great cardstock in my stash that had a girly but cool pattern, and I added zebra print washi tape and 2 rhinestones. Girly and hip, I think.
***And as a special bonus, Janet from Vera Lane is offering 10% off for those participating in the Wicked Wednesday challenge this week! Just use the code TRYVERA10 at checkout. If you spend $25 or more, then you will get a 15% discount! Thank you so much, Janet!

As I mentioned before, A Step in the Dark is back! We will be offering up a new challenge every 2 weeks, with lots of wonderful sponsors. The most important rule? It's got to be dark! No cutsie stuff...unless you've taken a sweet kitty and turned it into a zombie. ;) For this first challenge back, which is Anything Goes, we are sponsored by Rick St. Dennis. For my card, I used a rubber stamp from the Morte set Rick is offering through Smeared Ink.

I love the way Rick draws skulls and still lifes. I colored this in with pencils. Then I used my Fleur de lis stencil from Dreamweaver Stencils for the background.

I also sprtized on some irRESISTables from Imagine Crafts around the edge of the card for some texture and shine. Love that stuff! I need more of it! I hope you will join in on both of these challenges. Please be sure to visit the blogs for both teams to not only get the details, but also to see what the rest of my fellow teamies have created. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
