Skull with Poppies: Day 22 of 31

Hello and welcome to an on-time posting! I did manage to finally get up yesterday's post, so if ya missed it, feel free to scroll on down to it. So it's Day 22, and it's also a Wednesday, so that means I have a new Wicked Wednesday ATC for you. This week, we are sponsored by the amazing Aurora Wings, and the theme is Day of the Dead. I took a bit of a different take on the theme.

I used Memento Mori. And I didn't go with the typical Sugar Skull. Isn't this a fabulously creepy image? I used alcohol markers as well as watercolor markers for this.

Didn't need too much more, since i had this fabulous paper. I used some cool skully washi tape and a bit of Distress Stickles. That's about it! I hope you'll play along. Thanks for stopping by. Have a spooktacular 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
