Don’t step in the Blood Splatter!

‘Tis yet another Friday (hooray for the weekend!) so I am here with a new Smeared Ink creation. I just got the Inky Dreams stamp set, so I decided to start my card for this week with the big background. Then…a Glam Vamp. I know. You are shocked. I can’t help it! I like that digi set a lot! I also added a few sentiments from other sets as well. Let’s take a look.



I stamped the splatter on a cream cardstock. I liked it against the clean white card. Thought it was kinda funny to have such a messy image over a pristine white card. Just me? Then I colored up Rachel. Looking at it now, I could have printed her out bigger, but I tend to just print a massive amount of images at once, and then put them all together later. But, the sentiments (also on white) fill up the space nicely.



I put her in black and grey because I really wanted the red blood to be the only color. Well, that and her eyes and lips which are also red.



Here you can see how shiny the splatter is. I embossed it with a nice, rich red from Ranger. It looks like it’s coagulating! The sentiments are from the Love Grumpies, Heart Wings, and Death Cab. I hope you have enjoyed my offering for today. Have an inspiring day!

Love the sheen on the blood and the grey and black color scheme.

Coagulating blood effect from embossing powder = coolness.

I like her in gray with just the touch of red.
Wonderful card Alison, thanks for playing along with us again at HDH :D

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!
