Happy 100th Challenge to Haunted Design House!

Haunted Design House is celebrating their 100th challenge! And with that, not only comes some amazing blog candy-corn, but a fantastic challenge as well. The challenge is Varying Visages of Vincent. Price, of course! He would have been 100 this year. I still remember him on Sesame Street and Scooby Doo. Those were some of my favorite episodes of both of those shows. Se? Even then I was twisted! ;)

So I found an awesome image on THIS PAGE and knew I needed to use it. How could you not think of Vincent Price when you think of Thriller? And vice versa!

The image was so damn cool that I didn’t want to over do it with a lot of schtuff…but I did feel the need to add 3 layers of blood and goo to the top of the card. And tombstones. I needed tombstones. Both punches are from the Devil Herself, Martha Stewart.

I of course inked the edges of pretty much everything, and I scratchy-wrote Thriller. Oh, and there’s some Vintage Distress Stickles blobbed here and there too.

Here’s to Mr. Price! And here’s to another 100, Haunted Design House!!! Thanks for always being so amazing! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

This is great! I've always loved Vincent Price. I used to watch Faerie Tale Theater all the time, and I loved him as the magic mirror in the Snow White episode.:)

Awesome! Beelzebub herself would be proud to see her punches being used in such a wonderful way! And that image is perfect!
Thanks for playing along this week for our 100th challenge!

This is so awesome Alison! Love how you colored it and added the drippy goo and tombstones. VP was the master of horror, and a funny guy too.

February Smeared & Smudged Sketch Challenge

The new Smeared & Smudged challenges are up and ready for you to participate in! I got instantly inspired by Kelli’s card sketch for the month, as I have been working with different ideas for my next “Tarot Card.” Haha! That’s actually pretty funny! If you’ve been checking in over the past couple of weeks, you may have seen my Misty Benson Tarot Set 1 ( Smeared Ink ) cards. I’ve used The World and The Fool so far. Today, I bring you Death. Don’t worry…it’s actually a joyful image…one that I intend to use a lot! First, here’s the sketch. I flipped it and changed the ribbon and embellishment a bit. Can I just start off by saying that it is quite nerve wracking to slice your image??? I have done it a few times in the past, but I always get butterflies when I attempt it again. I colored the image and the card itself using nothing but Distress Inks and my Cut-n-Dry Nibs. My skull button at the top has been colored with Alcohol Inks.   The colors look a little off to m

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
