Frankiee… A Different Kind of Bride

I think that many of us have Royal Wedding Fever. I myself am typing this post as I am watching the ump-teenth recap of Prince William and (the now) Princess Catherine’s amazing ceremony. There’s was almost as good as mine. ;) But, I’d like to share with you a different bride today. Say hello to Frankiee…



This bodacious babe was created by Christy Croll, owner and designer, of Tiddly Inks. Who by the way is having an awesome Treasure Hunt right now! She “made” her for we Smeared & Smudged gals, as she is one of our wonderful sponsors for April. Tiddly Inks is sponsoring Oh! The Horror this month…and of course we used a Bride of Frankenstein poster. We are touched that Christy created a second image for us. The first, as you may recall was Rock-N-Rolla. You can purchase Frankiee HERE and RockNRolla HERE.




I broke out the watercolor markers once again, and used a mess of colors on her. Lilac hair, brown top, green skirt…don’t even get me started on al the different colors of skin she has stitched together!



My sentiment is from Smeared Ink. I thought it worked well for her! Inspired? You still have a little time to play along with this month’s challenges! But, if you don’t have time today…there’s always next month. I do hope you will play along with us at Smeared & Smudged. We always have wonderful challenges and prizes! Have an inspiring day!!!

Awesome card, I love how you've coloured Frankiee; I have to admit I've already got her printed out waiting to be coloured :)
Love the stitching detail
