Wicked Fool

Greetings! It’s time once again for me to share another project featuring the ultra cool (and not for the faint of heart) Smeared Ink stamps! Today I am sharing a card using another image from the Misty Benson Tarot Deck Set 1. Today’s card features The Fool.

I used colored pencils and chalk to color this image in. And what a cool image it is! I love the way Misty Benson draws faces. There’s something so sweet…and a little sinister about this “Fool.”

This picture is a little washed out…but his skin is comprised of several layers of chalk. A few greens and some yellow. He was practically begging me to make him green! And I thought it wwas the perfect shade for him!

The “Wicked” is from Smeared Ink’s Teen Style Sayings, and I thought it was totally appropriate here. The orange swirls are from Queen and Company. They’re felt and adhesive backed. Love them!

Thank you for stopping by! Have an inspiring day!
