Black Dagger Brotherhood- Butch O’Neal Fandom Friday on TTIC

Time for another Black Dagger Brotherhood Challenge! This week we are working with Butch O’Neal. The ex-cop human who not only wears killer threads, but…shall we say…runs with vampires as well! Here’s what my Book Buddy Beth wrote on TTIC:

PhotobucketPhew! Can you believe we are almost halfway through December? And, oh yes – TGIF! Hopefully you have all found some quiet time somewhere to get in a little reading – and better still, I hope you have gotten your hands on a copy of one of the BDB books! This week, we have the challenge based on book #4, Lover Revealed, which tells the story of Butch O’Neal. Read on:

Butch is a man who has lived a hard life. His heart is big, but his head never really lives up to his heart. He’s rough around the edges, and lives his live hard charging, with little regard to his own well-being. And he is always on the fringe – in his family, his job and in life. Then he finds himself coming to the aid of a friend, and his whole universe shifted. His entire destiny was Revealed.

Craft: Capture Butch! He is so unique, this could focus on any facet of his personality or his life!
Comment: How do you feel about Butch? Tell us what you think!!

I gotta be honest, I made kind of a quickie card. But, I made what I had originally thought of doing for our pal Butch.


Picture this… it’s Butch’s Birthday. What does his best bud get him? Red Sox tix! Yup, V bought the human 2 VIP’s to a homegame. How sweet is that? ;}

I got the image from HERE. It was exactly what I was looking for. It’s pretty cool, even though I ain’t no Sox fan!


I used red cardstock and drew on white stitching with a Chalk marker from EK Success. I wanted a reverse ball look. Then I inked the edges a bit with a nice dark blue. Pretty easy!

How do I feel about Butch? He is one lucky guy! Yeah, he had a damn rough life, but in the end… well, lets’ just say Butch has found his true family (wink!)!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
