StampInsanity Challenge #13 A Recipe

It’s time for Lucky 13! This week, the Groovy Gurlz and YOU are challenged by StampInsanity to make a card using the following recipe: you must use: - Black Cardstock, - Pearls, - and a Skull shape, design, or whatever you can find! Totally simple for me! I have to say, I loved this challenge! I had my card made days ago! Which is really good for me!!! I might even need to play along again… ;}

I don’t usually use so much in the citrusy tones, but I was really in the mood for it when I made this card.

Here’s a closeup of my coloring, and the lovely Nicholette. I used my EX Success watercolor markers this time around. And just a couple Sakura markers too. You can click on nay of my pics to see them bigger.

SISC13-4

How cool is this skull? I got it from my Mom’s stash of stuff that she got at work (JoAnns). Sometimes she comes home with some awesome finds! This was one of them!

I know, I know… you’re probably all shocked that I used only ONE skull on this card… I just didn’t want to overdo it. Plus… I like to keep you guessing! ;}

SISC13-3

Here you can see the metallic pen I used on Nicholette’s necklaces, umbrella, and around the border of the card. You can really see the sheen on her necklaces best, though.

Now, off with you! Go and visit the rest of the Groovy Gurlz! I have seen some of their projects already and my, my, my! Prepare to be wowed! I hope you get to join the insanity and play along with us this week! Remember, each week you have a chance of wining a fabulous digi! Have an inspiring day!!!

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
