Freak Friday Challenge

Today begins a new challenge over at Forever Night Challenges.  This weeks theme is to use orange, black and grey / anything goes.

  I started with a black CS base for my ATC. Then I used my cuttle bug to emboss this awesoem bingo card background and used the direct to paper technique with my orange stamp pad.  I sponged over with grey ink so the white wouldn't appear so stark.  Then I stamped the crow and candlestick (CTMH)  in grey on another piece of whtie CS and fussy cut out and mounted onto the ATC with foam tape.
Now get on over to Forever Night Challenges to enter this weeks challenge, we are being sponsored this week from Meljens and the winner this week will get 3 of her images!

Freaky Friday Challenge #49

Welcome to another fun challenge over at Forever Night Challenges.  This weeks theme is use some metal / anything goes.  Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo and they gave us some super cute images to work with.  This image is Scene It - Halloween Witch, isn't she just a cutie!

I went with purple and gery tones mostly for this one.  My metallic elements include the gems on the bottom - I know it's a stretch but they look like they have a shiney metallic finish :) and I've also used a metallic sharpie for some of the dots in the sky.
Please head on over to the challenge blog to see even more samples from the DT and to enter our weekly challenge.
Stop by later this week for my second card using a Bugaboo image.  :)

QKDs 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop Day 10

Welcome back! Todays theme for the QKD Blog Hop is Labels.  I've chosen this fab Elixir label. I stamped in cocoa ink on kraft paper, then cut out.  I mounted onto black CS and cut that out to shape also.  The testure paper may look familiar, I used it a couple of days ago on an ATC.  I mounted that onto black CS also and then onto the kraft CS base.

I added a shimmery brown ribbon and a pin I made with beads from my stash.   Please make sure to visit all the blogs on the hop and leave everyone a bit of love, we all appreciate comments.
This is the last day I'm participating in the QKD Blog Hop and I've had a blast. I hope you've enjoyed visiting my blog and come back to see me in the future. There are still a few days left of the hop so make sure to visit the QKD Blog everyday for the hop list.

QKD's 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop Day 9

Welcome to day 9 of QKD's blog hop! Today's theme is cute.  The first time I saw this stamp I knew I just had to have it.  Masked Chick from Sandra Caldwell. You can find this one and many more cute stamps at the QKD Store.

I colored her with pencils and added some glitter to her mask. She's the perfect size for an ATC! I fussy cut her out and mounted onto some fun dot paper from Michael's.  The sentiment is from CTMH.
I'm having a blast playing along with everyone, thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving me some love. Make sure you visit all the stops along the hop to see what awesome images you can find at the QKD store.

QKD 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop Day 7

Welcome to Day 7 of the QKD Halloween Blog Hop.  Today's theme is flowers.  I've used this lovely image from Monica N Galvan's Visions Collection called Masquerade Fairy, you can find her at the QKD Store.

I've colored her with pencils and added a little bit of everything else.  I made the flowers from patterned paper and a die from MFT.  I used black glitter glue in each of the flowers and regular glitter glue on her wings. Also some gel pen on her mask and trim of her dress.  The background was spritzed with purple glimmer mist and the flowers with white glimmer mist.  I made the stick pin with beads from my stash.  I had a lot of fun with this creation.

Hello and welcome to my blog.  If you are looking for Day 4 of the QKD hop please go here.  If you are looking for the Little Miss Muffet Challenge you are in the correct spot. I was lucky enough to be asked to join in the LMM challenge after winning some stamps just because I have their blinkie on my blog, how awesome is that?!
So their Challenge #45 is Simplicity, something that I'm REALLY good at, lol.

I've used Celeste Amberglow Owl Always Love You from their Honeycloud Teens collection.  Isnt' she adorable? I've colored her with pencils using mostly browns and greens and popped her off my kraft CS base with some foam tape. Add a green ribbon and voila, simple and cute!

QKD 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop Day 4

Hello friends and welcome back to the 13 Days of Halloween QKD Blog Hop.  Today's theme is spooky.  I used an image Isabella from Kathy Cyr.  I got her a while back because she looked so sweet but sad.  As I was pulling my idea together for my project I had a flash of brilliance (I think) I planned on making an ATC and this image is the perfect size, but with a theme of spooky how was I going to make this sweet little fairy work?  Well at first I thought maybe she got stuck in the web and was so sad and needed help, but then I decided she didn't really get stuck.  It's all a trick! She's luring you into helping her and then her spider friends attack!  Pretty spooky eh?

I have really bad lighting in my house :( So I've been scanning my projects, well this one with so much lighter colors really gets blown out. I also took one with my camera but because of the bad lighting I have to be careful or the flash goes off and then it really gets blown!
So I've included both.  The scan so you can get an idea of the layout/design and the second camera shot which is a bit blurry but you can tell she actually has some color to her.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving such sweet comments along the way.  I'm so happy to be joining in the fun with QKD's wonderful DT.  Make sure to visit all the blogs and leave them some love.  I will be back for day 6 but don't miss out on all the day 5 entries, stop at QKD's blog for each days participants! And stop by the QKD store to pick up some of the fabulous images she carries!

QKD 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop Day 3

Welcome back to day 3 of QKD's 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop.  The theme for today is purple. I've used this lovely image Orchid designed by Kathy Cyr. She can be found at the QKD store along with many other fabulous images.

I've colored her in various shades of purple with my pencils and used foam tape to layer her on some purple paper from my stash.  All on a black CS base.  I wanted to add glitter to the wings but knew she would never dry in time to be scanned for the hop.   So check back I may go ahead and do that and take another photo to add :) In the meantime make sure to visit all the blogs on the hop and leave all the artists some love, plus there is a special message on the QKD Blog that you won't want to miss.
