Simply Betty Christmas Preview and The Birth of Venus…Zombified!

I have 2 exciting images to share with you today! For starters, Simply Betty Stamps is previewing the newest line, Sweet Gothic Kids: Christmas, all week long. Available for purchase starting this coming Friday. Second, I have a third new image from Smeared Ink. Did you see the HUGE release they had on Friday? Eleven new digi sets! Wow! Before we get to that though, let’s meet Judy, one of Simply Betty’s Sweet Gothic Kids.

How joyful is she?! I think she is such a cutie! I colored her with many layers of colored pencils. Here’s a closer look.

I used some red, but I didn’t want it to be overly traditional. So I went with shades of seafoam, aqua and teal, which looked really fresh with the red.

I stamped a simple, pretty “Joy” (love that it’s vertical!), up the side, and used some fabulous paper for this fresh take on Christmas. What do you think?

Let’s move on to Smeared Ink. I invite you to see…The Birth of Venus…Zombified!

Smeared Ink has redone a few classics, and basically zombified them all! Wicked! This image was colored with my watercolor markers. I decided to do nothing else to the card (except ink the edges a wee bit), because there is already so much going on.

Pretty crazy right? Venus looks pretty calm considering the scary-ass zombies that are coming after her! You can visit the Smeared Ink store to see all of the new releases, and please be sure to check out my fellow DT gals for more new creations.

Also, stop back every day this week for another Simply Betty Sweet Gothic Kids image. And visit the Simply Betty Blog to see what the rest of the DT creates. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
