Rio- Ed Wood Style!

I have a card to share with you that I am entering into 3 challenges. That’s a lot for me! First, The Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #11, which is to create in Black and White…Ed Wood style! The second is for the Simply Betty Sketch. Yup, I just did a card for that last week (when Miss Rio was green), but you’re allowed to enter more than once, so I figured, why not? The third is for Macabre Monday over at Haunted Design House. It’s a free for all from Barb this week. And while this card isn’t as creepy as some of the other things that I make, it is a little spooky!

Rio-B&W-1

I have to say, I loved coloring Rio in black and white! I really like how her hair came out and the gradation of grays I used in her skirt. Here’s a close up.

Rio-B&W-2

She’s boo-tiful, no? I took a bit of creative license with the sketch this time around, and I am quite pleased with the finished card. I made the sentiment using my Sunset Sizzix font (yup, just used that in my Pirate layout! Did ya see it????). added a rhinestone to the Basic Grey tag, and I just had to use my MS drippy goo punch!

Rio-B&W-3

And there’s is Rio’s little bat! I wonder if he has a name…??? Enjoy your 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
