2 ATC's: Day 8 of the 31 Days of Halloween

Hello and welcome to Day 8 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween! I've got 2 ATC's for you today. One is for Wicked Wednesday, and the other is for A Step in the Dark.

Wicked Wednesday is sponsored by Delicious Doodles this week and the theme is Feathers/Wings. I love this raven digi.

I added a wee bit of color and spray to the raven, and I stenciled my background with Dreamweaver's Damask stencil.

This "creepy" fella is from Dilly Beans, who is the sponsor for the latest A Step in the Dark Challenge. I colored him with colored pencils.

I used a fun purple luster to emboss the sentiment, which is from Recollections. So I'm off to make more Halloweenie stuff! Please visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, listed in my sidebar, as well as the 2 fantastic challenge blogs I am playing along with today. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!

Two wickedly cool ATCs.
I like the background and the touch of coordinating golds on the Raven card.

The layers and the shine used with the Creepy sentiment really make it stand out.

I love the ripped paper effect. I try to use it as often as possible.
Both of these ATC's are wonderful. Love the ripped edge on the raven and the colors on the creepy fella.

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 "
