Halloween Hop & Day 22 of 31 Days of Halloween

Greetings guys and ghouls! In addition to doing the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween, I am also in a nice, big, spooky blog hop with a group I am in on Facebook. There are a lot of hoppers, but you will certainly want to visit them all, as there are lots of wonderful prizes out there to be won! If you are here specifically for the blog hop, I encourage you to take a look at the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. We have been posting Halloween projects every single day in the month of October. There are a ton of amazing creations!

Here is the full list for the Halloween Hop.

AND we have TONS of fabulous Halloween prizes from our wonderful sponsors!

Stampendous! ( 5 winners... 1 Halloween bg cling stamp each winner..Crowscape, Graveyard, Beware Gate, Castle Gate, Pumpkin Fence)
Karber Digital Designs...2 digis to one winner
Skipping Stones Design...Halloweenie set
Smeared Ink  (5 single digis...1 each to 5 winners? or 5 to 1 winner?)
Strange Skin...1 set of choice (except Zombies)
Jens Digi Stamp...(5 images to one winner)
Simply Betty Stamps...($10 Gift Certificate)
La-La Land Crafts ($10 Gift Certificate)
Dreamweavers Stencils: 3 prizes: each is 4 stencils, 2 brushes,  with 3 technique sheets each!

For my project, I turned to one of the Halloween Hop sponsors, Strange Skin. I'm partial to their images,'s my sister and her boyfriend's comapny! So if you haven't seen their stuff before, and you like edgy and, ahem, unusual digis, Strange Skin is the company for you!

This is the Witch Cameo, from my favorite set of their's, The Beautiful Monster Cameo Collection. I adore this set, and wish I had more time to use it...because I would use it all the time! Hey, like I mentioned before, Strange Skin is one of the HAlloween Hop sponsors, you have a chance of winning a full collection of your choice (minus the Zombie collection)! How cool is that?!

I colored the witch in with my beloved colored pencils. It feels so good to be using them more often again! Take a good look at all of the elemnts drawn into this image. See how the moon looks like cheese where the rat is eating? How the witch's color becomes the moon? I love the deatils.

I was very inspired once again, by the latest Deconstructed Sketch, so I'll be entering this baby into that challenge. I love those sketches! My "Halloween" is from Basic Grey, and I stamped it onto a transparency, since it would have never worked on the glittery DCWV cardstock I used for the background. I used a metallic cardstock for the top layer of the drippy goo border. It's so shimmery in person.

I hope you have enjoyed my offering for today. If you're new here, I wanted to let you know that I am having a Crazy A** Stamp Sale going on with 50% off retail of all brand new stamps. Please take a peek! Again, all of the Wicked Bloggers are listed in my sidebar, and for the Halloween Hop, be sure to visit everyone for a chance at those "wicked" good prizes! 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
