Day 4 of 31 Days: Crowscape

Happy Day 4 of the Smeared Ink 31 Days of Halloween! Today I have a quickie card, that has a bit of cool creep factor to it. I started off the the Crowscape Stamp from Stampendous, and I stamped it with StazOn on to vellum. I tore all 4 edges to give it a more ragged look.

Then, I took my card base and I used Aged Silver embossing enamel from the Silver Frantage Encrusted Jewel Kit along the edges. Can you tell I am obsessed with these kits and this effect? You've got to get at least one to try them out! They are so much fun.

This card took me about 10 minutes to make, which is fast! Sometimes you just need to bang out a quick card, and I'm really happy with how this one turned out. So for now I bid you adieu. Please be sure to check out the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!

Love the simplicity of this - I should use vellum more often, it has a gorgeous translucency x

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
