Day 18 of 31: Trick or Treators

Hellooooo! Welcome to Day 18 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween! Today I have a card using a fantastic image from Aurora Wings. One that I started last year...

I used Trick or Treat Boys for this card. Some time ago, I believe on the Kit and Clowder FB Page, there was a contest to color any image with crayons. I made it to the party kind of late, and I never got a chance to finish what I had started. I liked where it was going though, so I wanted to use it now.

I got my sentiment from the Spooky House set from Stampendous. I had printed the image pretty big, since I knew I wasn't going to be able to get great detail with the crayons. So I decided to keep the rest of the card pretty simple.

I did get to use my favorite punch of all time though, the Drippy Goo from Martha Stewart. I inked it a bit and heat embossed clear powder all over it for some texture and shine. It's not too easy to color with crayons the way I like to color, but it sure was a fun challenge! Don't forget to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a boo-tiful day!

Love the slimy goo. Using crayons still relaxes me, but I agree it is tough to do fine details. Nice use of layers.

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!
