Day 21 of 31 Days: Silent Night and WW

Hello! It's Day 21 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. Only 10 days left! I've got 2 projects to share today, but one isn't Halloween. I know, I know...crazy! The non-Halloween is for Wicked Wednesday. Let's start with the Halloween project though, huh?

I have been wanting to make this project for a while, and I am really happy with how it turned out. I used the fantastic Silent Night stamp from Stampendous. I stamped it on to watercolor paper and then used Detail Black embossing powder and heat set it.

Then I played with some watercolor paint. Then I stamped out my tombstones on to gray cardstock, and watercolored them a bit as well. I also used foam strips to pop it up off of the card's bottom.

Ahhh, it's nice to stretch my creepy-styled legs. Now on to...well....a not creepy at all project. ;)

The theme for Wicked Wednesday this week is Funky Colored Hair and we are sponsored by Lacy Sunshine. I used Sweetest Day Love Not Fairy. I have to admit, with all of the Halloween fun that I have been having, this was a challenge for me! I colored her with my Recycled Pencils from Tombow. I gave her a bit of a fiery mane. Not colors I typically use for hair.

I used a great sentiment from Stampendous (as well as a teeny heart from the same set-which I embossed), and some Delicata Ink from Imagine Crafts around the edge of my ATC. Love the shine of that ink! Well, for now I will bid you adieu. Please be sure to visit the rest of the WW gals as well as the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a boo-tiful day!


Oooooo....I'm loving that silent night. ...creepy!

the fairy is very pretty.
I love the winter scene (i'm calling it winter since the trees seem to be bare). this is a great stamp set. So many things could be added to complement it.

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
