This is kind of a late posting for me, but I really, really wanted to play along with this week’s Haunted Design House challenge (“Chic Freaks”), and I’m almost outta time! Plus, it’s been waaaaay too long since I made something creepy. So I pulled out my Smeared Ink stamps and went to work.

I started off by coloring in 2 of the Glam Vamps (because really, who’s more chic than these two?). I colored them with my “triple threat cocktail” (hmmm… I may need to coin that phrase!) of pencils, watercolor markers and Copics. Here’s a closer look.

I mounted these sinister sisters on to a olive green cardstock that I stamped and embossed the skull from Quoth the Raven. Added a few spritzes of Candy Apple Red Glimmer Mist and “rawr.” from the Creepy Lil Grumpies set.

It feels good to get my creep on again! I need to keep going with this….more of the goth, right? Hopefully this week there will be more. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
