Goth Fairies!

Good evening! I have a couple new projects to share tonight. I've been working on these two cards a little bit throughout the day and finally have them finished. They feature two of our new digis from the GOTH FAIRIES digi set. I made them both pretty large...the cards are 8.5 x 5.5 and they take up pretty much the entire card. I hope you like them!

First, I'd like to introduce Melina:

I colored her using prisma color markers and a white gel pen. I used gold glitter to stamp some flourishes on my green and orange paper along with the Happy Halloween sentiment. Then I added some buttons and hemp for my final touch. Isn't she pretty!!

Second, I'd like to introduce Honey:

This card was designed for our sketch challenge over on Smeared and Smudged. I colored her with prisma color markers as well. I used gray card stock for my base card and used the bark stamp from Smeared Ink's Urban Decay rubber set  to texture it. I used a spider web stamp for the corner (one I had - can't remember where it's from) and highlighted it with my gel pen. Then I added some black brads and made them into little spiders. Then - I used a border from Recollections at the bottom.

Hope you like them!!

Aren't they awesome!?! And even more good new - we will be having mini releases throughout the rest of the month and into October, so keep your eyes peeled and check back often!

OK, on to the celebratory projects! My first projects uses a digi image from the Build a Graveyard set - The RIP Tombstone. I just LOVE the skeleton hands! For this project I tried all kinds of stuff that I've never done before. First off - it's my first real tag. Second, I used a screen (tattered angels). And third, I EMBOSSED! I've been wanting to try embossing for a very long time now and finally got the courage to attempt it on this piece. It was just time! Haha. For coloring, I used prisma color markers and tim holtz distress ink pads. Hope you love it! This tags new home will soon be with Lady Brayton!

Alright - I went a little more "fun" with my second piece. I chose to work with the Pumpkin Head digi from the Smell My Feet digi set. With this one I made an ATC. I used a pumpkin border from Recollections and lightly sanded it to look worn. Then I tied some hemp around it and added my Pumpkin Head image (colored with prisma color markers). The last touch was adding the "feed me" sentiment which I used individual letter stamps to create and emboss. Enjoy!

That's it for me - Off you go to visit our wonderful Design Team and their fabulous bloggies!! They are sure to inspire! And don't forget to stop off and check out the shop!
