Day 26 of 31: It's All About the Dead

Greetings! It's Day 26 of the Smeared Ink 31 Days of Halloween. Along with that, this week, the Stampendous team is featuring projects that are All About the Dead. I made a card featuring the Skull Roses stamp, and the Spider Web stencil from Dreamweaver.

I colored the stamped image with my Tombow watercolor markers. Then I fussy cut it out. I embossed the Spider Web with glossy black embossing paste on to teal cardstock. After it dried, I started adding my torn paper and punched border.

I used some wonderful Mini Glue Dots to adhere my black cabochons to the top of the card. The mini Glue Dots are usually my go-to dot size of choice. They are the perfect size and really bond so everything so well.

That's it for me today. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Blogers, all listed in my side bar, as well as the Stampendous gals that are listed below. 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!
