Bombshell Sketch Challenge & Day 8 of 31 Days of Halloween!

Hello my little trick or treaters! Today I bring you a 6x6 card using this month’s Bombshell Stamps sketch! Here’s the sketch.


And her is what I created using my brand new Butterfly Queen stamp set!


Isn’t she fabulous? Now you may be wondering what this has to do with Halloween…she’s dressed up as a butterfly, of course! This is glam Halloween, baby!


The Queen is colored in with my colored pencils, and a bit o’ blue glitter. Her wings were inked with 3 colors and then embossed with clear powder. I added a bit of glitter to those as well, but this time, I used Stardust Stickles. I also embossed the edge of the purple oval with glitter powder.


Did you notice that her wings look crooked here? I did that on purpose…because they move! I attached them with brads underneath her so that you can flap her wings! She is pop dotted, so the brads don’t interfere with her body.


I used the “Bombshell” title from the Angel set…also embossed with a glitter powder. There’s a lot of shine goin’ on here! Check out the sheen on the K & Co. paper I used…it’s got foil on it!


Isn’t it fab paper? It goes perfectly with the way I colored my Queen! You can click on any of my pics to see the images bigger.

Don’t you wish you had a glam Halloween party to go to like her? I do!  I would like to really encourage you to play along this month with the sketch challenge. Why? Because you have TWO chances to win big this time! Not only can you win through Bombshell itself, but also by posting your card in the RSC challenge HERE! How awesome is that??? So please, play along! I can’t wait to see what YOU make! Enjoy the rest of today’s Wicked Blog Posts! Have an inspiring day!

February Smeared & Smudged Sketch Challenge

The new Smeared & Smudged challenges are up and ready for you to participate in! I got instantly inspired by Kelli’s card sketch for the month, as I have been working with different ideas for my next “Tarot Card.” Haha! That’s actually pretty funny! If you’ve been checking in over the past couple of weeks, you may have seen my Misty Benson Tarot Set 1 ( Smeared Ink ) cards. I’ve used The World and The Fool so far. Today, I bring you Death. Don’t worry…it’s actually a joyful image…one that I intend to use a lot! First, here’s the sketch. I flipped it and changed the ribbon and embellishment a bit. Can I just start off by saying that it is quite nerve wracking to slice your image??? I have done it a few times in the past, but I always get butterflies when I attempt it again. I colored the image and the card itself using nothing but Distress Inks and my Cut-n-Dry Nibs. My skull button at the top has been colored with Alcohol Inks.   The colors look a little off to m

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
