Rose Skull Stencil Card: Day 24 of 31

Hello! Today is the 24th day of the 31 Days of Halloween. Today's post isn't going to be very long, as to be honest...my heart hurts. One of my mom's cats passed yesterday, and I am taking it pretty badly. I have been writing many of my posts well before hand, but today's I didn't, and my heart just isn't in it. I used the Rose Skull Stencil from Stampendous to pull together a quick card.

I sprayed (rather vigorously) the one side of the stencil with Metallic Orange Memories Mist, with Rose Bud, Lilac Posies, and a touch of Tuxedo Black Fireworks! Spray from Imagine. Then I flipped it over on to my Mixed Media Paper and pressed it down.

You can see the shimmer in the photo above. After it was dry (even though I smudged a part by one of the eyes), I tore the edges around the image. Then I flicked it with a Black Mister from DecoArt Media to get the droplets. I added some beautiful washi tape from Queen & Co. by adhering it to a black card base. Then I added a wonky (purposefully) line of Shimmer irRESISTable Pico Embellisher.

The card came together pretty quickly ,thank goodness. I like the end result. My apologies for my lack of enthusiasm today. Hopefully I will feel better soon. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed below. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fangtastic day!

It's impossible to be "up" every day.
Relax, refresh, and enjoy some down
time.
Love the project. The red around
the eyes is great.

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 "thank…

April Sparkle Blends Release Hop

Hello! Welcome back! And if you're new here, my name is Alison, and I appreciate you visiting me. Today is a big day, because Doodles Paper Playground is having their April Sparkle Blends Release Hop. This month, 6 brand new Sparkle Blends have come out to join the party, and the Doodles Paper Playground Divas are joined by several very special Guest Designers. So sit back and enjoy all of the wonderful projects we have to share with you. There are prizes to be won along the way too!
My card today features the beautiful new "Diamond" Sparkle Blend which is filled with lovely clear, opalescent clear, and moonshine sequins. There are different sizes, shapes, and styles in the Blend, so even thought it is all technically "clear," it is full of interest. This mix is perfect for the style of shaker I did today, which has a colored focal image in the background. The clear sequins sparkles, but doesn't hide the background. It just adds some magic. I used, what ver…

Arnold Grummer and Stampendous Collaboration Part 1

Hello! This is an exciting post for me because I am part of a 2 week "Earth Day" blog hop between Stampendous and Arnold Grummer. If you have visited my blog before, you know how much I already love Stampendous. But Arnold Grummer was new to me. They make paper making supplies. This is something I have never done before. And truthfully, I was never interested in doing. I thought it was so much work to make one sheet of paper, it would take all day, etc. But, when I was asked if I wanted to be a part of this hop, I thought about it and decided that I love trying new crafts, so I should give it a shot. And guess what? I had a blast! My daughter (who is 10) and I decided to tackle this project together, and we came up with 4 beautiful sheets of paper in just over an hour.
 I think that once we play with the process a little more, and organize the flow of our work space, we could probably make the sheets a little faster, but I was really happy with what we accomplished in a pret…
