SISC69: Goin’ Goth! Plus, Sweet Gothic Kids Christmas Preview Day 5: Tilly

It’s a big day! A fang-tastic new StampInsanity challenge is up, and I have another Simply Betty Stamps preview to share with you!

This week’s StampInsanity challenge is Goin’ Goth! What could be better?!?! For this challenge, I used one of my favorite SI images, Lilith.

I kept it looking kind of unfinished on purpose. Goth is creepy, gets you thinking… I wanted it to look like the story may or may not be finished here.

I colored Lilith with my watercolor markers. I think she came out pretty rad. If you click on any of my pics, you can get a bigger, better view.

I obviously didn’t want to go with all black for this card. Too obvious for me. I wanted those pops of color to be unexpected and surprising. I love this paper I have on the left side. It’s so soft and fibrous. It tears beautifully. I “stitched” on top of it with black Stickles. I am really happy with the end result.

On to something…cuter. ;) It’s time to meet Reindeer Tilly. Who I think may be my favorite image from this Simply Betty release (though it’s really tough to choose!).

Isn’t she adorable? I know…I don’t use “adorable” on my blog much…but how could you resist her? And look…she’s got a teeny spider on her ear!

Tilly, unlike Lilith, was colored entirely with my pencils. There’s a lot of layering goin’ on here, and I couldn’t be happier with how she turned out.

My sentiment is from Tattered Angels. I kept this card (like some of the others I’ve shown this week) non-Christmas-y. I wanted you to see the versatility of these fab images.

Please be sure to visit the rest of the Ward 2 gals of StampInsanity.

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
