Peep Show!

How’d ya like my title??? Let me start off by saying, I had NO idea how to correctly photograph this project. And it’s a shame…because it’s pretty damn cool. My sis who’s a photography pro wasn’t around to aid me in this…so I’m gonna try and snag her to retake these dreadful photos.

Now that that’s out of the way…I started to play with my Nymphs stamp set from Smeared Ink. And I cam up with what I thought was a fabulous (and funny!) idea. You can let me know what you think…

So I painted this little box. I used some branches from the Tree Nymph and a few dabs of Distress Stickles in Peeled Paint…you’ll see a detail shot in a minute. But wait? What’s that blotch on top of the glass???

Why, it’s the dress the Tree Nymph is wearing! And look…there she is down at the bottom of the box! Hello down there!!! I guess she’s feeling a little self conscious…wait a second…maybe not…

Gasp! She’s taking off her dress!!! The glass panel in the box slides out so you can put your treasures inside.

And here she is in all her glory!!!

Here’s a different angle so that you can see the glass.

So??? Funny right? It’s a Nymph Peep Show!!! Hope you got a good laugh! Have an inspiring day!!!

PS: After seeing the first few comments, I saw just what the other girls were talking about! It SO doesn't look like that in person! I promise, it's a dress...not a big penis!!! Again, my photos are pretty crummy, and the colors didn't come up as well as they should have... But, I do think it's pretty funny that that's what everyone else saw! Thanks for the laugh, everyone!!!

That is so funny I love it and I agree with the other girls I didn't realize that was a dress at first either, guess were all gutter minds. That or the dress is just made to look like something else, lol. You made my Friday with this. I can't wait to see what else you make. I just poped over here Im going to take a peek around here but I love your work.

OMG, this totally made me laugh cuz I sooo thought the dress was something else as well. A little old & withered & crooked but nonetheless, that's what I saw...OMG, I'm still giggling - I love it btw, it's awesome now that I know what it is...;)

LOL! I have to confess, at first glimpse I saw something different and started to think that I was some sort of kooky weirdo until I got to the end of your post and I was relieved to find out it wasn't just me ;D I guess I'm a normal weirdo...LMAO! Now I totally see the dress and I LOVE the idea of the peep show box! So incredibly clever and amazing!

...and in local news:

"Sisters and owners of Smeared Ink Stamps engage in shenanigans regarding phalec imagery in art".

One witness claims that Tori sites the specimen to be "hard" and "fun to play with". When hearing her sister's response, Terra could only say, "Ick! I'd hate to be on the end of that one...kinda wrinkly and old looking".

Our investigations revealed that Terra is the culprit behind the creation of said image even though artist and Smeared Ink Design Team Member, Alison, was responsible for the upwards animation of the image in question.

What is going on with Smeared Ink? Is it a pre-requisite for members to be depraved? Or is it merely a side effect of inhaling the vapors of their rubber stamps and ink?

More details at eleven.
Okay, y'all just made my night! Great comments :)

Alison, this is stunning! I love this lil treasured box! Beautiful job and all those details, breathtaking! You go girl :)

hugs, margie

What an amazing peepshow box. I love the distressing and the effect is awesome.

I too failed to see a dress. I was thinking you were making a very saucy craft project indeed :-)

I didn't see a penis until I read your note, which is funny because I actually see penises everywhere :). This is a very cool project!

This is so clever, Alison :) Very fun project... and I DO see what everyone was talking about ;)

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

Day 1 of 31 Days: Come as You Aren't

Greetings! It's officially the most wonderful time of the year! Today is Day 1 of the 31 Days of Halloween. I have participated in every 31 Days (what are we at? Year 5?) and I am so excited to be doing it again. For my first project. I use a bunch of Stampendous' newest Halloween images. I started off with the fantastic witch label from the Halloween Labels Cling and Die Set  and colored it with Zig Clean Color Markers. I then stamped the spiderweb and a spider from the Spider Fear set and embossed with with Star Dust embossing powder. I created my card base out of Sweet Potato cardstock and stenciled the Swirls Stencil with Gray Flannel Memento ink. I didn't make it solid, rather I wanted the stenciled image to fade in and out of the background. Then I inked up the bottom edge of the card base with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed Marcastie Embossing Powder on top. The card needed a little something further, so I stamped a sentiment from the Spooky Wishes
