The World Is…

What is The World to you? Does it change from day to day? Lately, The World has been a little dark to me. But, I am trying to brighten things up for myself. I got something in the mail the other day that is certainly helping in that quest. I received Smeared Ink’s  Morbidly Adorable Tarot Set 1 from Misty Benson. I LOVE this set!

Misty-Benson-Tarot-Set-1-wm

Isn’t it fabulous? Even if you’re not into the tarot, you have to agree that these images are spectacular! The World really inspired me, and is just begging for bright, happy colors. And to be honest, this card made me happy. Which is exactly what I needed!

You know this makes you smile! Aren’t those the sweetest skeletons you’ve ever seen? I thoroughly enjoyed coloring this image in.

 

I used Twinkle H20’s and colored pencils to color the image in. If you click on the image, you’ll be able to see it bigger…and all the pretty twinkle!

If you look at the dragon, you can see a lot of shimmer. I used a lot of cool papers and minimal embellishments, because I didn’t want to take away from the beautiful image.

I hope this card made you smile! It certainly brightened my World. 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

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
