Speak No Evil: Day 11 of 31 Days of Halloween

Hello again! I have a card to share with you today, and I am really happy with how it turned out. I started off with Speak No Evil from the Stamping Chef.

 I haven't gotten to color too many images for this 31 Days so far, so I was really happy to get this one all done up. I colored her mostly with watercolor markers, but  did use a few alcohol markers, and Antique Linen Distress Ink Reinker for her face. Originally, I had her face whte with a bit of gray to give shadows. But after picking my papers and such, the white was way too stark. I applied the ink with a brush after diluting it with a bit of water.

Her hair was a great to color. I love how it was drawn. The little "cards" on the side was another part of my winnings from the last 31 Days. They are from a Graphics 45 pad that was in my parcel. I thought they were perfect with her.

I'm going to enter my card into The Stamping Chef's current challenge which is Anything Goes. Now I bid you adieu...please be sure to check out the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!

You have chosen the perfect cards and bits to add to her image.
Her skintone is marvelous.
I agree, even a dull white would not have had the same impact.
A more yellowed linen works beautifully.

what can I say - LOVE her hair!

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

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

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 "
