Day 9 - 31 Days of Halloween

YAY! Day 9 - I can't believe I haven't missed a day yet! Maybe I'll actually make it for the entire 31 days this year!! It's very exciting to think that I can actually complete it. You guys are doing an awesome job as well and thank you for coming back and checking out all our fabby Halloween projects.

So....Do you guys know about our challenge blog, Smudgy Antics? It's a dark challenge blog run by the Smeared Ink Design Team. They are a wonderfully talented group of artists that I hope you are all familiar with. They make weekly projects to inspire you and show off our Smeared Ink images. Will you stop by and say hello? Better yet, stop by and PLAY ALONG! 31 Days is a perfect opportunity to make some dark art and it would fit perfect with our weekly themes this month. In fact, this week's theme is "Movie Madness".... I know you have a favorite scary movie...one with a vampire, maybe...or a werewolf? Zombie or ghosts? Any of those would work and you get another chance to WIN an awesome prize. Smeared Ink is giving a $5 voucher to use in the shop! You don't even have to use a Smeared Ink image to play along...

Now for my offering for the day. I stamped on fabric for the first time EVAR! It was the most craziest thing I've ever done in my entire life....NOT! Ha....but it was definitely different. This is an image from the AS DEATH rubber set from Smeared Ink. It was discontinued for a while, but if you haven't heard, Smeared Ink has a new RUBBER CLUB! As Death is the first available rubber set. If you sign up before October 15th you can get it too! It's an awesome set.

I tried coloring in my image with my limited supply of Copic markers. Is that supposed to work? My colors bled like a slit throat, but I think it gave it a neat vintage effect. Anyhoooooo, I made this little pillow (with the help of my mommy because I don't know how to sew without poking a whole in my finger).

Whatcha think?

Now off you go to visit Kristy next! If you get lost, remember that the hop list is on my sidebar! 

And keep your eyes peeled for the scavenger hunt!!!


  1. Very cool - I love the slightly bleeding look.... as long as that isn't from your fingers with the sewing :-D xxxx

  2. really cool and you are very creative with your fab ideas.!

  3. That's an awesome stamping job. It looks so very antique. More guts that I. Thank you for sharing your ideas.

  4. Fabulous, Tori! I think the slight bleeding really adds to it. Love it! xxD

  5. Awesome! What a great idea and I think the image turned out great, bleedign markers and all. You could sell these as little cachets (not sure if I spelled that correctly)

  6. Totally gothic pillow! I'd be too afraid to stamp on fabric unless I stiffened it first. You did a fantastic job!

  7. How brave of you trying to stamp on new mediums :) What ink did you stamp with? I've always fancied the idea of making X-mas ornaments this way. I like the bleeding effect...gives a vintage look for sure and adds to the creep factor ;)

  8. That pillow is so cool and can be used all year long - love the creepy. Great job to your Mom for the sewing.

  9. I like it a lot! Also wondering what ink you used to stamp as I've tried this before with no luck. The reds are so cool! Mommies do come in handy!

    1. I used stazon for the stamp and then copics to color. Worked, ok, me thinks ;)

  10. You and your "Mummy" make a great team! This is awesome! Lovin' that image, gotta go check it out.

  11. I think I love it! wow the bleed through helped make art. awesome!

  12. Really fab, I love stamping on fabric and you wouldn't notice the bleed at all if you hadn't said anything as it really works with the image

  15. what a neat cushion! would be tempted to sew a ribbon loop to the top to have it hanging somewhere :Dxx
