Zombie Box- Day 5 of 31 Days of Halloween

I am stoked about this project!!! I have been itching to decorate a box lately. I had a completely different idea when I had started…but I remembered about this sick image from Strange Skin, and I knew this was the way to go!


I love this digi! And…I have to admit, I love how this box came out! But wait…ya gotta get a close up of this image!


Look at the middle finger on the right hand! You can click on the pic to make it bigger. It’s just bone! Isn’t that cool??? I colored the image in with my colored pencils, and then inked on top of it with Antique Linen and Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I Mod Podged it to the box after the box itself was completed.


As far as how I made the box…I used Making Memories Paints, which are acrylic…intended for paper, but the work fabulously on wood too! I used Celery and aged it with Evergreen. Then, I went over the corners a bit with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Then comes the blood splatter!!!  From the devil herself, Martha Stewart (just kidding!). This is actually a stencil for coloring cupcakes! I saw the set this one came with in the store, and my first thought was Glimmer Mist!!! But obviously, I didn’t want pretty,  shimmery blood. So my sister Pam, had a great idea! To use ink and emboss it. So I did just that! And it came out perfectly.

Ahhhh…it feels great to make something other then a card. Not that I don’t adore making them…but as an artist, I love to dabble in all sorts of projects. And decorating boxes is something I love to do!!!

Now please visit the rest of the Wicked Blogs (posted on my sidebar). There is so much to see, and it all rawks! 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!
