Day 17 of 31: My Heart, Your Brain

Hello out there in Bloggy-Land! It's Day 17 of the Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. Today I have the companion ATC for that sweetie of a mummy that I posted the other day. This image is from Vera Lane, as was the mummy. She is in fact, part of the same Quirky Zombie and Cat collection. And, most importantly, she's the mummy's girlfriend. See? He was only sad the other day because I hadn't posted his gal yet.



I colored her with my Tombow watercolor markers. My background was done on watercolor paper with a few sprays of color. Then, I stamped Andy Skinner's (for Stampendous) Scratch stamp from the Industrial Cling set. It "junked up" the background perfectly, I think.

The fab sentiment is from the Vera Lane collection as well. I think my little couple will be quite happy together, side by side....don't you think? Be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!

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!
