Halloween Lantern: Day 16 of 31 Days of Halloween

Hello Halloween fanatics! It's Day 16 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. Today, I have a super simple card...albeit a kinda creepy. At least...I think so. I hope you agree.

I started off by stamping my "Halloween" image (one of my all-time faves!). It's from Basic Grey. I stamped it on to vellum with Memento Ink. Word of warning...it dries sloooooowly on vellum. So I used my embossing gun just a bit to help it along. Then, I stamped my pretty lantern (from Inkadinkado) in the same fashion.

For the spooky glow, I simply cut a piece of orange cardstock and placed it underneath the vellum. So it gave the look that it was actually under old glass. Sometimes simplicity can be pretty creepy, and that's really what I was going for here. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by, have a creep-tastic day!

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
