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!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
