Day 8 of 31: Crow with Blood

Hello! It's Day 8 of the 31 Days of Halloween. Today I am sharing a project that came together quickly. We all need to make quickie cards once in a while, right? Well, this is one of them.
I started off by stamping this fabulous image with crows from Inkadinkado on to my scratched up cardstock. The cardstock is printed this way. It's from an older DCWV paper pad...the Twilight inspired one. So I stamped the image with VersaMark and embossed it with Detail Black Embossing Powder. For my card base, I just used a regular white card and smeared Black Shimmer Delicata Ink all around the edges. Now it has a nice shimmer. I also inked the edge of my mat with Tuxedo Black Memento, just to make it stand out a little.

Then it was time for the super fun part! Spraying my faux blood everywhere. And I do mean everywhere......

My kids thought I got bit by a dog. Anyway, to create this fabulous catastrophe, I used once again, Love Letter irRESISTable Spray from Imagine. That stuff is seriously one of my new favorite things. And for you gore fanatics, I cannot stress enough how much you need this stuff.

I mean, look at that shine! The dimension! It's perfection. I know, I know...get on with it, already. I honestly don't have much more to say. ;) Again, it was a quick project, with just enough of the creepy factor for me. I'll be back tomorrow with some more blood splatters! Don't forget to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fangtastic day!

Love when you have a background paper
that doesn't require a lot of extra
work. The crows are spooktacular.
The splatters of blood are fangtastic.
Hope the kids weren't upset for too long.
thanks for sharing a wonderful card.

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
