QKD Whimsical Sketch Challenge (and Macabre Monday #50)

Today is the very first time I have played along with the Whimsical Ink SororityAlex, one of my fellow Smeared & Smudgers (and member of the Kaleidoscope Krew!) mentioned this challenge the other day on the forum. So I decided I just had to play along! It’s a sketch challenge; and here is the sketch.

Cool. I just happened to have a couple images from QKD from a swap I did with the S&S girls. I need to get me some of these stamps because they’re fab!


Isn’t my batty-wench fabulous? Now, you may have noticed in my title that I also mentioned Macabre Monday #50. That challenge is “Foul Flutterings.” Now, I put it in parenthesis not to undermine the creep-tastic Mondays, (have I mentioned that I made Gruesome Twosome with my Jack O’ Lantern Shaker Box card?????) but because this is not the project I originally intended to enter for it. I have another one up my sleeve that I hope (fingers crossed!) to have done tomorrow. So hopefully I will have tow entries this week for the wonderful Haunted Design House.


Once again, my colored pencils were used to color in my image. It’s hard to tell, but her sword and necklace were done up in metallic pencils. It look way better in person.


This wonderful key is from DCWV, their Once Upon a Time collection (my fave!!!). I thought it was just perfect for finishing off this card!

Thanks for looking! Have an inspiring day!!!


Awesome card! Love the batty-wench.:)

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
