Day 2 of 31 Days of Halloween!

Greetings! It's Day 2 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween! How did you enjoy yesterday? I loved it. If you have no idea what I am writing about, please visit Terra's Blog for all the deets. I wish I had time to comment on everyone's blog every single day. I will try to visit and leave love with as many as I can per day. But on to today's project. As you may know, I recently became the newest member of the Dilly Beans Design Team. And it has been such a fun team to be on! I LOVE Megan's amazing images. And SO many of them are just perfect for the 31 Days of Halloween. You will be seeing quite a few things from this company this month...and they are one of our sponsors! Here's my project.

This is Teeghan ans her little spider friend. Normally, I shy away from spiders...ok...more like run away screaming...but this little guy is so cute!

I LOVED coloring this image. I started off with my watercolor markers and Copics, for Teeghan and her friend. Then I used actual watercolors for the background. This little image has awoken quite a monster inside me...I must have painted about 10 images in the past week now! Wait until you see them! After I did the watercoloring, I used Orange Stickles (which is on top of an orange Copic), so she is uber glittery. And fabulous.

For the card itself, more watercoloring...but scribbly! I added a small piece of corrugated cardboard that I inked, and my sentiment is (from Inkadinkado) was stamped on to a transparency and stapled. I wanted the sentiment to overlap the corrugated cardboard, but I knew it would never stamp right on it. Hence the transparency.

I hope you have enjoyed my project for today. I have to say, this is one of those that turned out better than I expected, and I love it. Now it's off to the rest of the Wicked Bloggers for you! Everyone (all 37 of us) ae listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!

Regina said…'s a spider...a very cute spider!! Love how this piece just POPS out at you.

I have a confession. I am fascinated with spider webs. Don't want to actually deal with the spider but I love how the webs glimmer in the sunshine with the ones that seem to appear daily in our garden.

Happy Hauntings ^_^

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.
