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!!!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
