Day 3 of 31 Days: Mummy Loves You

Hello Halloween fans! It's Day 3 of the Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. Today, I have a card  that features an image from Strange Skin, which is my sister Pam's company.

I love the way Pam drew this heart. The wrappings are so intricate and cool. I colored the hear with Pumice Stone, Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.

The drippy letters are from Martha Stewart, and I used a couple of rub-ons that I had laying around. I also used my Mini Punchinella stencil from The Crafter's Workshop.

That's my project! I hope you like it. Now it's time for you to keep hopping! The entire Wicked Blogger hop list is on my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!

Alison...this is cute beyond belief. I might just have to try and make one of these for my son's Halloween party. I make lil mummy candy containers and this card would add so much. Thank you for the inspiration.

Happy Hauntings,
Regi ^_^

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!
