Day 29 of 31: I'm Bewitched!

Greetings Bloggy Friends! It's Day 29 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. It's also my 11 Year Anniversary! So I love this day. I also have one of my favorite projects that I've made all month to share with you. A few weeks ago I won Zombie and Her Kitty from Saturated Canary, and I was so excited to color her up. She was a blast!

I colored her using the Indirect Coloring technique with my Tombow markers. I know I have been yapping about this technique a whole lot this month, but the effect is just great, and it's fun to do!

I colored her to look as though she was morphing. After I colored her, I used a Spellbinders die to cut her out, and then I heat embossed the edges with Aged Copper Embossing Powder (from the Bronze Encrusted Jewels Kit), and I added some sparkle with  Mahogany and Burgundy glitter right on top of the embossing powder before I heated it.. These 3 things are of course from Stampendous.

My background was done with the Nathalie Kalbach set called Grunge. I used all 3 stamps in the set using various inks. I tore the bottom and added a wee bit of Mica Flakes from the Gold Encursted Jewel Kit. That's all for me today. Don't forget to visit the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!
