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!

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.

Arnold Grummer and Stampendous Collaboration Part 1

Hello! This is an exciting post for me because I am part of a 2 week "Earth Day" blog hop between Stampendous and Arnold Grummer. If you have visited my blog before, you know how much I already love Stampendous. But Arnold Grummer was new to me. They make paper making supplies. This is something I have never done before. And truthfully, I was never interested in doing. I thought it was so much work to make one sheet of paper, it would take all day, etc. But, when I was asked if I wanted to be a part of this hop, I thought about it and decided that I love trying new crafts, so I should give it a shot. And guess what? I had a blast! My daughter (who is 10) and I decided to tackle this project together, and we came up with 4 beautiful sheets of paper in just over an hour.
 I think that once we play with the process a little more, and organize the flow of our work space, we could probably make the sheets a little faster, but I was really happy with what we accomplished in a pret…
