Greetings! It’s Day 2 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween! How did you enjoy yesterday? I loved it. If you have no idea what I am writing about, please visit Terra’s Blog for all the deets. I wish I had time to comment on everyone’s blog every single day. I will try to visit and leave love with as many as I can per day. But on to today’s project. As you may know, I recently became the newest member of the Dilly Beans Design Team. And it has been such a fun team to be on! I LOVE Megan’s amazing images. And SO many of them are just perfect for the 31 Days of Halloween. You will be seeing quite a few things from this company this month…and they are one of our sponsors! Here’s my project.
This is Teeghan ans her little spider friend. Normally, I shy away from spiders…ok…more like run away screaming…but this little guy is so cute!
I LOVED coloring this image. I started off with my watercolor markers and Copics, for Teeghan and her friend. Then I used actual watercolors for the background. This little image has awoken quite a monster inside me…I must have painted about 10 images in the past week now! Wait until you see them! After I did the watercoloring, I used Orange Stickles (which is on top of an orange Copic), so she is uber glittery. And fabulous.
For the card itself, more watercoloring…but scribbly! I added a small piece of corrugated cardboard that I inked, and my sentiment is (from Inkadinkado) was stamped on to a transparency and stapled. I wanted the sentiment to overlap the corrugated cardboard, but I knew it would never stamp right on it. Hence the transparency.
I hope you have enjoyed my project for today. I have to say, this is one of those that turned out better than I expected, and I love it. Now it’s off to the rest of the Wicked Bloggers for you! Everyone (all 37 of us) ae listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!

EEEEWWWWWW..it's a spider…a very cute spider!! Love how this piece just POPS out at you.
I have a confession. I am fascinated with spider webs. Don't want to actually deal with the spider but I love how the webs glimmer in the sunshine with the ones that seem to appear daily in our garden.
Happy Hauntings ^_^

These images are not quite cute but super cool. And I have to say your scribbles are the most amazing part of the presentation. Love them!
This is wonderful, love all the glitter and that image is beautifully colored.
Oh I just love this! I know what you mean about getting to everyone's blog every day. I missed yours yesterday so I'm trying to hit the ones I didn't get to yesterday. I'm so glad I didn't miss this one! I have never tried Copics but this looks really neat. And the watercolors are great, too!
