Day 22 of 31: Creepy Carnival with Rick St. Dennis

Helloooooo Halloween fanatics! Welcome to the 22nd day of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. Today I am posting my project here and on the Airless Chambers blog for Rick St. Dennis. Behold! The most popular attraction of the Creepy Carnival!

I decided to work with the Scary Go Round (great name, right?!) I colored it up with my alcohol markers. 


It took me a while to get all of the details right, but I am so happy with the results. Now tell me, would you go on this ride? I would!


I didn't want to do too much, so that it wouldn't overtake the image. A Martha Stewart Punch, fun Halloween paper, a tag I made...and this 6x6 Mini Page was done. Hope you like it! Remember to visit all of the Wicked Bloggers, listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!

I spent a couple summers running the rides in my wild youth. None were quite as exciting as this.

Have you seen the Haunted Carnival event at Artfully Musing?

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!
