It's October 1st!!! DICC #39 and Day 1 of S&S 31 Days of Halloween


It's October!!!! My absolute favorite month of the year! I am SO happy that it is finally here. Today is huge, for so many reasons. I have a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge to share with you, the new term with Bombshell Stamps is starting, and...the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween has started! Holy crow! That's a whole lotta stuff. Let's start with the itinerary for DICC, which is also my project for today's 31 Days project.

DICC Itinerary: Sponsored by Floppy Latte, created by Jenn 
1. Candles
2. Full Moons
3.  Bats or Owls
4.  Creepy Crawlies (spiders, snakes, bugs, etc.)
5. Silhouettes
6. Coffins or tombstones
7. Purple
8. Witch(es)
9. Ink or paint splatters
10. Silver or Gold


I chose to use this fabulous silhouette of an owl and a full moon by Floppy Latte. The itinerary numbers I used were 2, 3, 5, 7 (I promise it's purple and not blue!), 9, and 10. I colored the moon with 3 colors of Copics.


I inked the edge with a chalk ink, and after assembling the whole card, I sprayed it with Walnut Stain Glimmer Mist.


Here you can really see the shimmer from the Mist. Isn't it pretty? I like how the large splotches of Mist look like craters on the moon.


My sentiment (stamped on Mulberry paper) is from Inkadinkado. It's a very simple card, and not overtly Halloween, but for the faint of heart, this is just spooky enough.

Now, you have few things to do. You need to head over to the DICC Blog to see what the rest of the DT did with their Floppy Latte images. You need to check your visit the Bombshell Blog/Forum and your inbox to meet the entire team for the newest term. And, now this is super important, you need to check out my sidebar. See the Wicked Blogger list? Go and visit all of those wonderful folks from the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween for nothing but Halloween goodness! Go get hopping! Thank you for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!

Great colors and I love the Copic work. They blend so well and I love the touch of the Mulberry paper, I didn't think of that for any of my projects. Thanks for sharing.
Love the card, Alison! Happy October!

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!
