Spaghetti Christian and the Rocky Horror Picture Show

Well that’s a weird combo in my title, huh? Today I have 2 projects. One is from the new Teen Scene Kitchen Fun line from Simply Betty Stamps, and the other is for the latest Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls challenge. Let’s start with Christian.

I just loved coloring him in. I think it was so cool to use such a small amount of color. Especially when you compare yesterday’s project to today’s. What a huge difference!

Doesn’t that plate of spaghetti look delish? Once again, I colored this image with my watercolor markers. The sentiment is also from Simply Betty. I got the layout for my card from this month’s Smeared & Smudged Sketch Challenge.

I unearthed that cool gingham paper that I thought was just perfect for this card, and then I kept the embellies simple…a couple of gold paper clips. They reminded me of a waitress’ order book.

Now for Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls. The challenge for the next 2 weeks is Repo the Genetic Opera vs. The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Honestly, I’ve never seen Repo. And, I’m not a fan of Rocky Horror, although I love Tim Curry. So, I went with a more subtle nod to RHPS…

This fabulous Corset Heart is from Strange Skin. Again, colored with watercolor markers, and 2 of Sakura’s Star Dust pens as well.

Isn’t it purdy? I thought it was just right for this challenge! I used a few different scraps of paper, and of course, my beloved Drippy Goo punch from Martha Stewart. Take a close look…I used 2 different reds. Makes the goo stand out more. Especially if you make sure to not line up the drips.

You can see on the lacing that I used one of my Star Dust pens. Super sparkly! I adhered my cabochons on to the card with Silver Stickles.

That’s all for today! I hope you’ll be back tomorrow for the latest Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop. Please be sure to pop over to the SBS Blog, and the Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls Blog too. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

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
