Day 22 of 31: Technicolor Halloween


Hello! It's day 22 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. Today, my project aligns with the Stampendous theme of the week. We are sharing various awesome projects using Nathalie Kalbach's fun and funky stamps. I decided to combine her stamps, with some Dreamweaver stencils, and Amplify from Imagine Crafts.

This was all really about playing for me. Playing with the stamps, the neon colors, the paint itself, and of course, my stencils. I started off with one spritzing my watercolor paper background, and then using one of the stamps from Nathalie's Wired set. Then I really started to play.

I used a couple of the images from Nathailie's Grunge set. I took out my Creative Palette and squirted some Radiant Purple and Radiant Green Amplify on to it. Then, I swirled the 2 together with my palette knife. Dipping the stamp in, I placed it in a few spots around my base. Then, I used my embossing gun to heat it up in order to create that fantastic puffed look that Amplify is known for. Next I added my stencils. First was the spider and next was the bats. I applied the Amplify in a similar fashion as I would with Embossing Paste. You need to be really careful though, since Amplify is much thinner than the paste.

After I finished stenciling and stamping, I wrote out my title and puffed it up. A little spritz of purple Memories Mist here and there, and that was it. It was fun! Make sure you check out the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, they're all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have an spooktacular 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!
