From Cute to Creepy

Greetings! Today I am taking a VERY cute Rick St. Dennis image, and making it....well....creepy. I love doing that! A couple of weeks ago, Rick showed us his new image "Cat Nap" in our Facebook group. I thought it was adorable...but I also mentioned that I was sure someone would creep it up in some way. Well, Mo, Glo and I decided to give it a try. Here's what I came up with.

It's not terribly scary, right??? I am rather curious as to what this trio just feasted on.....

I used my Spectrum Noir and Copics to color the image. In the original, the cats' eyes are closed. But I decided to "wake them up" for this 6x6 mini page.

My sentiment originally had the word "delightful," but of course that just wouldn't do here. So I wrote "creepy" on top of it. The senti is from Create with TLC. And my background splotches are from Smeared Ink. Please be sure to visit the Airless Chambers blog where you will be able to check out Glo and Mo's creations. I hope you have liked these cuties transformation to the dark side! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Great transformation! Love the idea of making the kitties seem semi-normal, with just bloody faces. I was also going to color my kiddo in YGs, but decided to flip it, and keep him normal, and creep out the kitties.
Thanks for playing along with me and Mo!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
