It's Halloween!!! Plus, the Bombshell Hump Day Hop!

Happy Halloween! My post may be getting up later than I would have liked, but at least it's going up! As many of you know, I am on Long Island, which got pummeled by Hurricane Sandy this week. I had no power for 24 hours, but I am certainly one of the lucky ones. My power is back, though I have no internet, phone, or TV. Thankfully, my Mom's internet is up, so I scurried over to her place so that I could get my post live.
On to my project. It's the last Wednesday of the month, so that means, not only is it my last 31 Days project (major sniff!!!), but it's also the Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop! My challenge for this month was Black and White Halloween.

I used one of the Halloween Costumes. I love this Steampunk-y outfit. I colored her using 4 shades of Copics. N2, T0, C3, and 110.

I also used Banner Sayings to write Happy Halloween in.

I'm keeping my post short and sweet, because service isn't fully back to where it should be...and I worry my mom's wifi may kabitz out at any moment (though I hope everything stays in it's proper working order). It's been an awesome month, and I wish we could keep it going. I have so many more projects I want to make! But, Halloween is all year for us Wicked Bloggers anyway, right??? Please be sure to also visit the Bombshell Gals. The full hop list is below. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!


I am entering this into the latest Tuesday Alchemy Challenge: Dark, Gothic/Spooky

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!
