Day 27 of 31: Owl be Watching

Hello! It's Day 27 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. I have another Stampendous card to share with you today that is going along with the theme for this week, "All About the Dead." I used the Tombstone Owl for this card.


I colored this fabulous image with my Tombow watercolor markers. The card itself is Kraft cardstock, and I embossed NK Studio's Wired image with    embossing powder.

I love the mix of colors in this powder. It looks complicated, but it's only only one bottle of powder that has been used.

I stapled the image to the card for a little more metallic and texture. I kept it simple because the background is sort of busy, and because the image itself is so striking. Be sure to visit the rest of my Stampendous teamies that are featuring projects today. And don't forget about the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic 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
