Ugh! How is this month going so fast?! I cannot even keep up! It’s Friday, so I have a brand new Dilly Beans challenge to share with you. This week, the challenge is “Cute and Creepy.” Well, that certainly fits into the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween, now doesn’t it?
This is “Frida’s Sugar Skull.” I love her. This is such a great image. I plan on printing her very large for my kids, so that they can be on our Dedication Table for our Day of the Dead celebration. I colored her with watercolor markers and Copics.
I really like how she came out. Especially her hair. It’s very different from how I normally color hair, but it totally works with the Dilly Beans images. The fabulous lumpy-bumpy-shiny stuff around Frida, is more of the awesome Bedazzlers I got from Kathi. I share a different mix of colors with you on Wednesday, with my Bombshell card.
Here’s a close-up of the good stuff. Love it! What a fabulous mix of colors! For my background, I watercolored a piece of textured cardstock, and I applied some Kosher salt to it while it was still wet to get an interesting look to the wet paint.
Once dry, I stamped it with one of my all time favorite sets…it’s from Basic Grey. I adore those beautiful webs. They are so intricate and lacy. I hope you will join us with this fun challenge! Please visit the Dilly Beans Challenge Blog for more details and of course to see what the rest of the DT has created. Also, it’s time for you to hop along to the rest of the Wicked Bloggers!
