Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?

Greetings! It’s time for a new Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls challenge! This time, we are asking you to take a favorite fairy tail, and turn it into a scary tales! Create your own dark version of your favorite Fairy Tale! I chose to work with Little Red Riding Hood. I worked with Emma, who is from the Simply B Stamps Original Steampunks collection.

She’s not afraid of a little wolf! I’m afraid to see what the wolf looks like now…Look! There’s blood on her hands and mouth!

I colored Red with a combo of Copics and watercolor markers. I cut her out and mounted her on to some Kraft cardstock that I had stenciled with blood splatter (from Martha Stewart’s cupcake decorating stencils), and Distress Ink. I added a few touches of white to the blood, and I made my sentiment (Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf) using a JustRite stamper.

I got a giggle out of this one. Again, it feels so good to be creepy! And I loved coloring this image. Little Red Riding Hood kicked that wolf’s a**!
So head on over to the Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls Blog to see some more Scary Tales! And then, join in and play! 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!
