Greetings guys and ghouls! In addition to doing the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween, I am also in a nice, big, spooky blog hop with a group I am in on Facebook. There are a lot of hoppers, but you will certainly want to visit them all, as there are lots of wonderful prizes out there to be won! If you are here specifically for the blog hop, I encourage you to take a look at the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. We have been posting Halloween projects every single day in the month of October. There are a ton of amazing creations!
Here is the full list for the Halloween Hop.
Karber Digital Designs…2 digis to one winner
Skipping Stones Design…Halloweenie set
Smeared Ink (5 single digis…1 each to 5 winners? or 5 to 1 winner?)
Strange Skin...1 set of choice (except Zombies)
Jens Digi Stamp…(5 images to one winner)
Simply Betty Stamps…($10 Gift Certificate)
La-La Land Crafts ($10 Gift Certificate)
Dreamweavers Stencils: 3 prizes: each is 4 stencils, 2 brushes, with 3 technique sheets each!
For my project, I turned to one of the Halloween Hop sponsors, Strange Skin. I’m partial to their images, because…well…it’s my sister and her boyfriend’s comapny! So if you haven’t seen their stuff before, and you like edgy and, ahem, unusual digis, Strange Skin is the company for you!
I colored the witch in with my beloved colored pencils. It feels so good to be using them more often again! Take a good look at all of the elemnts drawn into this image. See how the moon looks like cheese where the rat is eating? How the witch’s color becomes the moon? I love the deatils.
I was very inspired once again, by the latest Deconstructed Sketch, so I’ll be entering this baby into that challenge. I love those sketches! My “Halloween” is from Basic Grey, and I stamped it onto a transparency, since it would have never worked on the glittery DCWV cardstock I used for the background. I used a metallic cardstock for the top layer of the drippy goo border. It’s so shimmery in person.
I hope you have enjoyed my offering for today. If you’re new here, I wanted to let you know that I am having a Crazy A** Stamp Sale going on with 50% off retail of all brand new stamps. Please take a peek! Again, all of the Wicked Bloggers are listed in my sidebar, and for the Halloween Hop, be sure to visit everyone for a chance at those “wicked” good prizes! Thanks for stopping by. Have a spook-tacular day!
