Frankenstein Tag: Day 25 of 31 Days of Halloween

I am sharing another tag today. I really enjoy making them. I hope to eventually use this one on a layout. I colored up Frankenstein, from Strange Skin’s Monster Buffs collection (did you know they now have two more famous monster sets???). Check it.

Frankenstein-Tag-1

I didn’t use any paper on this tag, aside from that which I used to print Frankenstein out. I used some raw cardboard, 3 Glimmer Mists (Jack O Lantern, Haunted Shadows, and Lily Pad), a Glimmer Screen (the spider web), my stitch stamp (Stampers Anonymous), a bit of white and black ink, Amazing Glaze, and some fibers. Oh. There’s an eyelet too. Not a lot of stuff to make a pretty cool tag!

Frankenstein-Tag-2

Here’s a close up of Frankenstein. He’s colored with my colored pencils. Isn’t he totally creepy?

Frankenstein-Tag-3

Here I’m trying to show you the lovely Glimmer Mist. If you click on this (or any other) picture), you can see it bigger. You can really see the Amazing Glaze along the edge here.

Frankenstein-Tag-4

You can see a lot of Glimmer in this shot. I love how the colors always blend so nicely together. You can also see just how big the tag is.

I cannot believe that Halloween is less then one week away!!! I have to say, that aside from being amazed at the talent we’ve seen over the past month, I am really going to miss hoping to the fabulous Wicked Bloggers (posted on my sidebar) everyday. I love to leave them all comments…and let’s face it, I love to read some love too! ;} I’m just glad that we can all still view each other’s work not only on the blogs, but on Smeared & Smudged too! Have an inspiring day!

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!
