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!

This is a great image and I love what you've done with her.

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
