Hello! It’s Friday, so not only is it Day 11 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween, but it’s also Dilly Beans day! The theme this week continues with Halloween…because let’s face it; Megan (owner and designer of Dilly Beans) LOVES Halloween just like all of us! So I hope that if you have some Dilly images, you play along with us this week.
I love this witch. Isn’t she adorable? And even her spider….cah-yute! I colored the image with my Spectrum Noirs.
Oh look! More purple! I told you I loved to work with it! 😉 I really love Megan’s frames. They add so much to her images, and I find that they often make coming up with the layout of my projects easier.
Do you find that when you do a lot of projects at once, you gravitate towards the same materials or patterns? I have used the wavy burgundy paper before….but it just works so well with Halloween. And actually, this project was created first. I hope you will join us at Dilly Beans this week. Please visit the rest of the gals at the Dilly Beans Challenge Blog.
***A few of you mentioned yesterday that you have never heard of embossing paste before. And by the way, I love when you ask questions! So. Embossing paste is a thick, fabulous “goop” (I use the term lovingly) from Dreamweaver Stencils. Check out THIS LINK. You can get it in white, black, silver, and more! You spread it on top of your stencil with a palette knife, kind of like icing a cake. Ad because it has such wonderful body, you can give it peaks, or keep it smooth, etc. If you have stencils, you have got to try this stuff out! If you don’t have stencils, get some! Dreamweaver is awesome!
So that’s all for today! Please swing by the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!
Lovely work on this card. She is beautiful! Love that polka dot background.
Gorgeous coloring and I adore that burgandy paper. Fabulous, Chickie! xxD
Another great card you've shared. The spider looks happy.
I think because it iss rare for me to get a larger space of time to craft, when I do and I have all my supplies "on the table" I want to use them in as many ways as I can.
Yup, I used what is out. Part of my reason for it, is that I'm to lazy to put it up when I'm done. Love that image! You did a great job with the colors.
Wow!! another fabulous card today! I love the purple paper you've used and you're so right about the frames on the Dilly Beans images, I love them! Got my atc posted to their challenge just now too!! mo x

Fabulous project. Love that little witch. Her spider is one I could handle. Thank you so much for explaining embossing paste and giving the link. I think I may just have to try some of this stuff.
So cool…the colors are so bright!

You do wonders with those Spectrum Noir pens! Each section of the design is a little treasure! I'm going digging through my drawers (my craft drawers) 'cause I know I bought some of that stuff many years ago!
Very cute I love this card!
Great card Alison…love how you colored this little witch and her spidery friend!
Cute card! I love the shading in her hair, awesome coloring!
Awesome… love the bright colors… it is amazing how colors can change the feel of an image. And Yes I tend to use the same stuff if I don't clear the table!!!
