Rotten Eggs for a Wicked Easter


Early Easter greetings! The Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls and I have a fun challenge for you today, that goes right along with this holiday. "Rotten Eggs for a Wicked Easter." We want you to create a dark Easter project. Fun right? And since this is the 1st Tuesday of the month, you can make anything. It does not have to be an altered item.

I chose to work with Judy, from the Simply B Stamps Sweet Gothic Kids Easter collection. For the rest of this week, SBS will be offering this set in digital form. But after this week, you will only be able to get them in rubber. So if you're a digi freak, get 'em while you can!


I wish I owned Judy's dress! She was a lot of fun to color, especially her hair. I of course had to add a wee bit of a signature color to it, so I went with purple!


I colored Miss Judy with my watercolor markers and Copics. Look at those cool skulls on the bottom of her dress!


I used a mess of different papers, including the foiled pink lips, which is from a DCWV paper. I got the Phoenix Seal of Approval (hey...that would be cool for a watermark!), and he said it was done. So I put paper, ink and Stickles down, and called it a day. I hope you will join my self and the rest of The Dolls for this challenge! You have 2 weeks to play along. 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
