Day 7 of 31: Alter Skulls ATC

Wow! One week down already?! That's the only part of the 31 Days of Halloween that I dislike. It's the counting. It makes the month go so fast for me. I'd like to thank everyone that gave me such wonderful suggestions on yesterday's slate. When I finish it off, I will post a new pic.

For today's offering, I have an ATC that was made with Alter Skulls from Bombshell Stamps. Alter Skulls is this month's featured set for Muse Monday, so that means it's on sale! This set is just perfect for the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween.

I colored this awesome image with my Spectrum Noir markers. I wanted to play along with this week's Wicked Wednesday challenge, which is voodoo dolls or stitching. So I faux stitched around the edge of my ATC. I really didn't want to do too much to my background, since the image has so much going on.

Of course, you should be off to check out the rest of the fabulous Wicked Bloggers, but you should also swing by the Bombshell Blog to see what other creations have been made featuring this set. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!

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!
