Fang-y Friends ATCs

I have a few ATCs to share today that I'm entering in the SDC Early Halloween challenge.  :)  I don't use my Cricut nearly as often as I should, but knew I had to clear space on my desk for it when I saw the Cricut Craft Room freebie of the week.  How cute are these little vampires?!  Maybe it's just me. ;)

I used the Color  Burst powders to create the backgrounds for these.  Then I stamped and stencilled before adding my multi-layered vampire.

 I noticed after I took this picture that the poor little fella above fell victim to one of my studio accidents.  I was oh-so-enthusiastically shaking one of my Distress Paint bottles totally oblivious to the fact that the lid wasn't on tightly.  Oops...little droplets of Seedless Preserves flew about the room decorating various bits and pieces laying about (as well as my monitor and keyboard).  I thought I did a decent job of cleaning up but as I sit here typing I'm still seeing random specks.  LOL

On this little guy I had the same Color Burst background initially but then dabbed blue and purple Distress paints over it masking off a smidge for the moon.  The stars are stencilled on with silver acrylic paint.

Happy (early) Halloween!

Furry Friends

It took us years to get a dog.  We were so busy with three kids in a bazillion different sports that it didn't seem fair to have poor Fido sitting at home all alone most of the time.  Things have definitely slowed down for us a lot in the last couple of years though so last summer this little dude bounced his way into the family.

He was such a cute puppy!  All of us adore this guy and I think my youngest likes to have a "little brother".  LOL.  He's who I thought of when I made this ATC that I'm adding to the Wicked Wednesday Furry Friend challenge.

There's nothing like coming home to a bundle of bouncing, tongue-wagging, furry love.  :)

Have a great day!

Halloween ATCs

Mwah-ha-ha!  The Halloween season is fast approaching. I've been dabbling in my creative space, not as much as I'd like, but dabbling regardless.

I love fall!

Wicked Wednesday: Sprays or Splatters

Well, I certainly like to spray and splatter so I'm in for this!  I chose to go the splattering route by inking up my background with Distress inks and then splattering with diluted inks and water.  I love this little house by Vera Lane Studio.  :)

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope your day is superb!

SDC 211:Primary Colors

I'm up for that challenge!  Sue Davies over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog wants us to use two primary colors this week.  I have all of my Stampotique stamps within arms reach and when I glanced over, Agnes the Pirate stared back at me.  Ahoy there, me heartie!  I  put her on an ATC.

Since she also has a splattery background I'm also entering her in the Wicked Wednesday Splatters or Sprays challenge.

Have a great day!
