Day 9 of 31 Days: Chloe Bell

Hello, and welcome to day 9 of the Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween! I am sharing a Dilly Beans card with you today. I made it a couple of weeks ago, and I can't bear to let it sit unseen anymore!

This is Chloe Belle. Chloe Belle Framed (#454) to be exact. Isn't she adorable? In a creepy kind of way. I think the next time I color her, her skin will be more sallow. This time around, I used watercolor markers and Copics. I loved coloring her because she was fast! I got it done in no time. Don't get me wrong, I love coloring detailed images, but sometimes, you just need to get something done now. And she was perfect for that.

The look on Chloe Belle's face reminds me very much of my daughter. Hmmm...maybe I'll color the image to look more like her next time!

I sprayed my background with a couple colors of Glimmer Mist, and a web Glimmer Screen. A few pieces of accent paper, that fabulous bow, and this baby was done. This version is uber Halloweenie, but done in a different color scheme, she could be used for pretty much anything!
Now hop along! The entire list of Wicked Bloggers is posted on my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have an fang-tastic day!


so lovely! THE WEBB IS GREAT!

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
