Day 12 of 31: Stampotique- Handles, Hinges, Buckles, Fasteners, Pulls

Hello and welcome back! Today I have a card that I created with a Stampotique image that just so happens to fit in with their latest challenge "Handles, Hinges, Buckles, Fasteners, Pulls." I used Prom Queen for this. She's awesome.

I love the style of these stamps so much. They are so scratchy and amazing. I need to add to my (small) collection someday.

She was colored up with my alcohol markers. I actually broke out some Copics for this one. I love her hair. I didn't do anything fancy or fabulous. But the way it's drawn is just rad.

 I added a bunch of buttons...not for the challenge...just because I thought they looked cute. Ugh. I said the "C" word. But they do...right? And then it just so happens that it fit the challenge, so....there ya go. By the way, the punch is from Martha Stewart. That chic always has the best punches. I won't keep you any longer. Please be sure to visit the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!

I think you did a great job! Cute works for her. I really like how you added the orange and green around her hair and feet.

Happy Wicked Weekend!
Yes, it was her hair that first caught my eye. After looking at her for a bit she could be the Zombie version of Peanuts' PigPen.

Fabulous card! Love the colors and all the little dots you put around her. Makes me think someone was throwing confetti and boy does she looks ticked about it. Very cool punch too, gonna have to add that to my wish list :)

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

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 "

Changes

Greetings! I don't have a project to share with you today, but rather, an announcement. I have decided to completely revamp my blog, and move it to a new site. I've been blogging at 21st Century Pillow Book for over 10 years now, and it's been wonderful. But the "Pillow Book" aspect got lost somewhere along the way. If you don't know what that is, read my description in the blog header, or do a quick search. They are really very cool. Anyway, I thought it was due time for me to work on a new blog, more of a brand, etc. So, I invite you to now join me over at alisonheikkila.com . I've still got some polishing up to do, and a whole lot of learning, as WordPress is completely different from Blogger, but I am really excited for this new site. I've wanted to do this for a long time, and I am happy to finally be getting it done. Bear with me as I figure out the best way to make it all look and flow. I thankfully have some help with that. But I think you
