Ravens Waiting: Day 27 of 31 Days of Halloween

Hello! It's time for Day 27 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. Where has this month gone??? Today I made a project for the latest challenge from A Day for Daisies. The theme is Anything Halloween, and  used their Ravens Waiting digi. I LOVE this company. It's certainly one of my favorites.

Isn't this a fantastic image??? I colored the image itself with Spectrum Noir markers, and the background was done with watercolors.

You don't need many colors for this image...but I look forward to experimenting a bit with it with some unusual colors.

I used my favorite punch (Drippy Goo), and 2 dies from Dreamweaver Stencils, called Nesting Frames. My sentiment is from Smeared Ink's Quoth the Raven set. 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!

Your use of limited colors on the skull is brilliant and watercolors make such a wonderful background! Love those die cuts and how you placed them and of course the drippy goo!

The focal image itself is beautiful and haunting. Your addition of layers and texture makes this an artpiece.
The larger frame is stunning, eyecatching. Nice balance with sentiment placement.

You should add this to Annie Walls' Nevermore Rapport party on the 30th.

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
