H is for Heikkila: Day 25 of 31 Days of Halloween

Welcome to Day 25 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween! Today I have something other than a paper craft. Hooray!!! I have been working on this piece for a while, because I had to allow for drying in between laying down the patterns. You'll see what I mean....


This pressed board "H" I found at Michaels for about a quarter on clearance. It's about 14" long. I think I may hang it on my front door or attach it to a wreath and then hang it to my door.

I used a bunch of Dreamweaver Stencils and a couple of stamps too. There's the Bats, the Owl on Oak, Damask, Houndstooth, Spider, and the Spider Web. The rest are stamps.

I used a little glossy black Embossing Paste, some black ink, and some fabulous black glittery embossing powder.

I would work on opposite sides of the H so that I wouldn't touch the wet spots. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!

This is so cool and represents your family and their love of holidays and acting, reinacting, etc.

I grabbed a few letters of various materials when our Michael's closed.
Most my son's first initial.
Thanks for some great inspiration.

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
