LOC #74 - tag or ATC


Hello Friends! This week's challenge over at Left of Center Challenges is to create a tag or ATC.  Of your you may always do anything goes as long as your item fits one of the LOC categories.



Our sponsor this week is Smeared Ink.  I've used one of the images from Danse Macabre which is an unmouted rubber set.  


I started with a piece of chipboard and cut the two top corners off to make it a tag shape.  Next I covered it with white gesso.  I made sure to leave lots of texture.  Once that was dry I sprayed black spray over the Tim Holtz Cargo stencil.  Then I sprayed some blue and then green and then a more brighter blue.  I actually put my sprays away already but if you would like to know the actual colors leave me a message and I will let you know.  I stamped my dancing skeleton in black ink on white CS and fussy cut it out then attached to the tag.  I know the tag looks a little plain but I'm so in love with how the background turned out I didn't want to cover it up :)

What are you waiting for?!? Head over to LOC to see what amazing creations the DT have made and join in the fun.

LOC # 70 - Dark Dreams


It's time for a new challenge over at Left of Center Challenges!  This weeks theme is "dark dreams". If your project is "mainstream" you must use the theme, however if you decide to go left of center your project can be anything goes.  We define left of center as anything steampunk, horror, anime, gothic, punk, Halloween, scary/creepy or mythical (fairy tales, myths, supernatural, mermaids, etc).  Sounds fun right?!!?

This week our sponsor is the amazing Sweet Pea Stamps
you can't believe how excited I was when they added digis.



I got to play with Helena Reis' Dia de los Muertos. 



I've colored her with pencils and fussy cut her out to pop onto my card.  My polka dot paper is from the Simple Stories SN@P! color vibe collection. I've also added a black glittered spider and black ribbon.  I just adore this sweet image.

Now head on over to the LOC blog to see the fabulous creations from our DT and the variety of images we've used from Sweet Pea Stamps.

LOC # 68 - big eyes

Hello Friends!  Here's the latest challenge info for Left of Center Challenges.  This weeks them is big eyes and our fab sponsor is Dilly Beans.  I got to play with #430 Skull Bow Girl Framed. Isn't she darling?!?

LOC # 66 - die cuts and/or punches

Today brings a new challenge over at Left of Center Challenges.  This week we are challenging you to use die cuts and/or punches, but of course you can always go left of center instead :).  Our sponsor is The East Wind. I was so excited to play with Twisted Venus.



I've colored her with pencils and cut her out to add to my mini journal.  I prepped my journal page with gesso and wanted some sparkle so added some blue glitter before it dried. Accidentally dropped a big glob right there in the middle but after I added Twisted it looks like she's throwing it so I think it works :) I also sprayed some blue ink so the glitter wouldn't be so stark against the white gesso background. I found the sentiment at Ginger's House  and figured my  glitter accident was meant to be. The work sparkle printed out lighter than the rest so I went over it with a blue gel pen.

What are you waiting for? Head over to LOC to see what DT have created to inspire you and join in the fun!

I've colored the deamon with pencils and then cut him out to add to my ATC.  I've used liquid glass over the eyes so they really do glow.

I was playing around in photoshop and altered my ATC and found this way to be terrifying as well.

I sponged the night sky in various shaded of blue. I attempted to highlight my tree with with gel pen but failed so ended up doodling all over it instead.  Then I doodle some more on the raven with purple gal pen.  I added drops of glitter to the sky to act as stars and when I thought they were dry I flipped the card over to stamp the date on the back and when I flipped it back to the front all my stars were smooshed....sigh  so they look bigger than they were supposed to so now they look like rain drops to me...  but I still like it. You can't really tell from the photo but they do sparkle.

I've made another rolodex card today.  I covered it in gesso (yesterday) and today I scribbled on it with my watercolor crayons.  I used a small paint brush to add water until I was happy with the background. I was so happy with it I wanted to squeal. I've used Black Widow digi from Smeared Ink and colored her with pencils. I used foam tape behind her body so she's popped up a bit. A strip of washi tape and a quick stamp of beware up in the corner and I'm done.  Oh and I added a bit of black gel pen on the legs and around the edge of the body.

It's day 16 of the Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween blog Hop.  Please visit the Smeared and Smudged blog for the daily clues and all the rules to  qualify for prizes and to find out about the daily winners.  Can you believe that we just past the halfway point? This month is flying by. I want to send a big thank you out to all the hoppers that have stopped by.  You all make this even more fun than it already is. Thanks for taking the time to visit and comment :)



For my project today I working in my mini-journal.   I started by gesso-ing the pages and since I'm not very patient I went ahead and sprayed my glimmer mist while it was still wet.  It looked awesome after spraying Jack Frost and Cornflower Daze and I was so happy, then I added black and it sprayed out in one big clump :(  So I ending up taking a paper towel to dab most of the black away and since the gesso was still wet it all blended together. It's not the first time I've done this so you'd think I'd learn, but oh well I still like how it came out looking like night sky, which is what I was going for in the first place.

My images are all from MFT. Very little coloring needed. Then I realized I forgot to add a moon so I cut a small circle and added some gesso on it for my moon texture and glued that to the page.

It's been a while since I've done a rolodex card so I thought today was a good day to play with one.  The witches legs are from Unity Stamps and the 31 is from CTMH.


First I stamped the legs and then masked over them to use my distress marker blower thing (too tired to remember the correct name) to spray orange ink over the card. Then I colored in the legs with pencil but it wasn't that bright so I colored over the socks with gel pens, you can see the shine in the photo.  Then I doodled around the edge.

After watching a couple of videos I decided to give it a try as Simply B Stamps is having a challenge and are asking for a pop-up box. I have used Steampunk Witch from Simply B Stamps. The cauldron and bats are from MFT and the sentiment is from Unity Stamps. This was a fun little project to work on, I might have to try another during the hop :)

31 Days of Halloween - Day 11

It's day 11 of the Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween blog Hop.  Please visit the Smeared and Smudged blog for the daily clues and all the rules to  qualify for prizes and to find out about the daily winners.


I played in my mini-journal for today's project.  I liked the background from my ATC yesterday so much that I wanted to start off with that as my background again. Once that was done I drew in my border with sharpie and a bit of white pain pen.  My skull image is from Wonderstrange and the candles are from CTMH.  I colored it with pencils but it wasn't bright enough for me so I went over with gel pens. Then cut them all out to add to my mini-journal.

31 Days of Halloween - Day 10 & LOC #49

It's day 10 ofthe Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop.  Please visit the Smeared and Smudged Blog for the daily clues and all the rules to qualify for prizes and to find out the daily winners.

For my 31 Days project today I have made an ATC using Anatomy 101 Skull from Smeared Ink.


I've used a Tim Holtx stencil to create the background and my beware is from an older CTMH set.

I am also sharing my Left of Center Challenges DT project today. Our sponsor over at LOC this week is Ike's Art and I've used Pumpkin Fairy to create my journal page. I colored her with pencils and added glitter to her wings. The background was created with gesso and green spray. I just kept adding a little of each and mixing it over the page until I was happy with the color and texture.  The bats are from an older CTMH set. 




Next stop on the hop is Sandy.  If you get lost along the way the complete list of Wicked Bloggers can be found to the left.

And don't forget to stop by LOC to check out the DT's awesome samples using Ike's images and to join in the fun.

Today I have used an image drawn by my friend Charina.  If you hopped last year you might remember that I used a few of her images.  Well now Charina has her own shop, yipee! This image is Succubus and you can find her here.
