Day 23 of 31: Another Two-fer!

Greetings! Today is another day that I will have 2 projects to share with you. But this time, they are both Halloween. It is the 23rd of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. I have a project for A Day for Daises and one for Left of Center.

This week for A Day for Daises, we are challenging you to "Make a Treat Item." I decorated a simple brown paper bag for my project. I colored the Pumpkin Head Friends using my Tombow watercolor markers, and the Indirect Coloring technique.

Then I used a couple of fun embossing folders for my background paper, and I inked them up. The candy corn has a chalk ink from Color Box, and the argyle has Gold Delicata ink from Imagine Crafts.

For Left of Center this week, we are sponsored by Limited Runs, and the theme is, "Use Your Skull."

I made an ATC using the Deadly Cupcake digi. I colored it with my recycled pencils from Tombow. I also sprayed my orange cardstock with some purple Dylusions spray. Then, I used some Aged Wine Embossing Powder from the Purple Frantage Encrusted Jewels Kit around the edges.

Please be sure to visit A Day for Daisies as well as Left of Center to see even more from these 2 fun themes. And don't forget about the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a boo-tiful 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
