Hello All! Welcome to Day #9 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. Today I am bringing you a card using the October Bombshell Stamps sketch.
Let me start off by mentioning that I hate photographing purple. It never, ever looks right. And If you have visited my blog before, you will know that
a.) purple is one of my favorite colors and I love to work with it
b.) I always get pissed off when I try to photograph it
So of course, it doesn’t look…well…purple-y enough for me again. For those of you with Spectrum Noir markers, I used the LV’s for this…so you can have an idea as to how this is supposed to look.
Ugh.I really cannot deal with the purple issue! Anywho. I used the Madonna Woodcut and one of the skulls from the Sugar Skulls set. And of course both are from Bombshell Stamps. This month, the Spectrum Noir blog, the challenge is to use the color orange. Done! And the color photographed well! So I will be entering this into their challenge.
If you would like to see the original sketch and more awesome projects featuring it, please visit the Bombshell Blog. And of course, be sure to stop by and say hello to all of the Wicked Bloggers, listed in my sidebar. I have got to mention that I am really sorry that I can’t leave all of you some love each and every day. I wish that I could. Please know that I do swing by, and I love everything that I have been seeing. Thanks for stopping by my little blog! Have a fang-tastic day!
***Many of you asked about what the drippy punch was from yesterday’s post. I apologize for not mentioning the deets on it. It’s from the devil herself, Martha Stewart, and it’s aptly named, the Drippy Goo punch. It is a favorite of mine. Thanks for all of your awesome feedback!
Gorgeous, Alison! Love the vibrant colors. I have the same rouble with photographing purple. Such a PITA, but yours looks fab to me. xxD
That and the flash also looses the true quality of the piece. Gorgeous lady, beautiful coat, and love that image. Heart candle is awesome. Bright and great layout.
We all understand how much it takes to post every day,not to add in things you are making!
In fact I even forgot today is Wednesday and I don't have a post ready for my once a week contribution!
You did a wonderful job photographing.
Oh wow! Love all the colors! It looks purple-y to me. That is a great stamp!

I understand your frustration. Purple never photgraphs well for me either. I love your coloring though. You did a great job with this image.

Well regardless of the purple issue (I personally think it looks fine)this is a fabulous project – bright and colorful and wholly in the spirit of Day of the Dead!

Alison, if this is my second time commenting just ignore it. So spacey today I don't know if I did it already! Your project today is lovely and so representative of what I think DOD should be – bright and cheerful colors and southwestern imagery!
Oh my gosh…love this sugar skull stamp. Great coloring (purple included) lol! Great composition and embellies!
this is awesome! so bright and beautiful! and for the record I think the purple is awesome!
so cool….the purple is hard to photograph… I have the same problem. That and navy is hard for me too! Great image fabulously colored!
Beautiful card, love the bold colors. Looks like you had no problems with the purple this time, but I know what you mean about the purple. I have the same problems and it doesn't help that the light in my house is super crappy.
