Day 9 of 31- Haunted Mansion

Welcome to Day 9 of the 31 Days of Halloween! Today I have a project featuring the Haunted Mansion stamp from Stampendous.

I colored the image with my Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. The stamp is so big that the card came together pretty quickly, which is awesome. I rubbed lots of fabulous Brown Shimmer Delicata Ink from Imagine all around the border of my once-white card base.

Then, I dripped some faBOOlous Love Letter irRESISTable (also from Imagine) around the edge. This mansion looks like a very old vampire could be living there, so the "blood" was a necessity.

There you have it! Don't forget to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fangtastic day!

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.
