Oh the Horror! S&S December Challenge

Greetings! Today I am bring you a card I made for Smeared and Smudged.  One of the many mini groups in S&S is “Oh the Horror!” It’s about… you guessed it, all things horror. So Terra (our fearless leader), gave us a movie poster to draw inspiration from. Here it is…

I love the colors in this poster (although, overall,, I think the art is pretty rad!). So, the colors are what I used for my card.

Please click on the photos to see them bigger! I used my Spirit of Winter stamp from Stamp Oasis. Isn’t she lovely and mysterious? I used a whole mess of things to color this card in. Watercolor markers, Twinkle H2O’s, chalk, colored pencils. I love mixed media!

Do you see the shimmer from the Twinkle H20’s? I am really happy with this card. I abso love the colors. I have sent this card out to Julie. Hopefully she got it already! ;}

That’s it for today… sorry about the short post. I have much to do for Nix’s B-Day tomorrow and the kids’ bash on Sat. Plus, we are headed off to the library now! Until next time!!!

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
