Can You Blush? BtBD & Day 18 of 31 Days

I’ve got another bookmark to share with you today. It corresponds with the newest Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls Challenge, as well as the Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. This week’s BtBD Challenge is the works of Guillermo del Toro. He “has a habit of creating wonderfully dark films, which contain great storylines, and wonderful imagery.  Most famous for Pan's Labyrinth, he has Directed and Produced films as diverse as Hellboy, Blade II, and Kung Fu Panda 2.” The challenge is to create a project inspired by any of Guillermo's work.

I was inspired by Blade 2 (it’s vampires! Of course I’m inspired by them!), and I chose to break out Smeared Ink’s Glam Vamps.

I also used the large splatter from the Smeared Ink Inky Dreams set. I also broke out the same wood grain I used on my last bookmark, and I used my type face alpha stamps for the sentiment…which is a line from Blade 2.

The Glam Vamp has been colored with my watercolor markers. I made her nice and girly…but she’s got a bit of an evil streak it seems with that line…

It was a pretty simple project. But simple is good, right? I do enjoy making bookmarks! Please be sure to stop by Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls to see what the rest of the DT has created for your viewing pleasure. And of course, check out the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a spook-tacular day!

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

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
