7 of 12 Days of Creepmas: Dilly Beans Traditional Colors

Hello my creepy loving friends! Welcome to the 7th day of the Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas. It's also Friday, so that means that there is a new Dilly Beans challenge! This week, it's Traditional Christmas Colors.

I used Monster's Candy Garland. Yeah, he's a Halloween image, but I thought the skeleton heads looked like popcorn...and i have been wanting to use him for a while. I think he came out pretty cute! Here's a close up.

I used watercolor markers for the entire image. My daughter, Rhiannon helped me chose where the colors should go. I love making projects with my kids. She also chose the Stickles I used for the background.

There you have it! I hope you have been enjoying the 12 days so far! Please be sure to visit the rest of the Jolly Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. And be sure to visit the Dilly Beans gals over at the challenge blog. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!

Alison, I love this little zombie boy. He's cute. Great card too.
He is brilliant as a Creepmas character! So cute!

Great card Alison. Amazing how you can change the purpose of a card with the right colors and sentiment. He looks just as good celebrating Christmas as he does proclaiming it time for Halloween!
Hiya Alison, loving this, great image and colouring.

Ho ho ho how fun this is! :) Oh I thought this was a new Creepmas image by Dilly Beans. :P I think it works just as well for Creepmas as for Halloween (or maybe even better for Creepmas?). The way you coloured it makes it very Creepmassy.

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some

Day 1 of 31 Days: Come as You Aren't

Greetings! It's officially the most wonderful time of the year! Today is Day 1 of the 31 Days of Halloween. I have participated in every 31 Days (what are we at? Year 5?) and I am so excited to be doing it again. For my first project. I use a bunch of Stampendous' newest Halloween images. I started off with the fantastic witch label from the Halloween Labels Cling and Die Set  and colored it with Zig Clean Color Markers. I then stamped the spiderweb and a spider from the Spider Fear set and embossed with with Star Dust embossing powder. I created my card base out of Sweet Potato cardstock and stenciled the Swirls Stencil with Gray Flannel Memento ink. I didn't make it solid, rather I wanted the stenciled image to fade in and out of the background. Then I inked up the bottom edge of the card base with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed Marcastie Embossing Powder on top. The card needed a little something further, so I stamped a sentiment from the Spooky Wishes
