~ Day 5 ~
The hop goes live everyday in October at 9:00 am Pacific time.
If you are following the blog list, you should have arrived here from Black Dragon's blog. If not, no worries! Hop in any order you want, but be sure not to miss any blogs as there are prizes hidden along the way. The blog list is on my sidebar on the left. If you want to start from the beginning, click here.
Here is my offering for today:

Today's project is a hybrid of sorts. The background is a rubber stamp from Smeared Ink's "Holy City" stamp set. It comes on a sheet of thick, high quality, deeply etched rubber that measures 8.5" x 11". I stamped this with Memento Ink on clay coated cardstock. I colored my image with copic markers, which I wouldn't really suggest on this type of cardstock. Dye inks would work much better. The alcohol inks don't absorb properly into the clay coating for blending. As you can see, the background turned out quite streaky, but I went with it. It was a bit of a happy mistake because it does look kind of drippy and cool.
I added Druscilla the Demon from Simply Betty Stamps' Steampunk Halloween collection to my scene. Like yesterday's project, she is colored digitally. The sizes of these two stamps did not match up. No problem! I simply scanned my colored image of the graveyard and enlarged it in photoshop and added Druscilla to the mix. Doesn't she look right at home in the graveyard? The pic was lacking a little something, so I added some light effects coming through the trees. I love technology! Your next stop on the hop is Jane's blog.
