Day 31 of 31 Days of Halloween! Happy Halloween!!!

Welcome back!

Today is Day 31 of 31 Days of Halloween.  Yep!  We made it!  Happy Halloween!!!

This awesome month long blog hop (hosted by Smeared and Smudged) goes live everyday in October at 9 a.m. Pacific time. The Hop list is on my sidebar. Don't miss any stops because there are prizes hidden along the way.

Here are my offerings for today:
(click images to enlarge)
#1
Image: Smeared Ink's "Zombie Headshot"
Coloring: Digital in PSE8
Background: random dungeon found online

I made this project in honor of this week's Smudgy Antics Challenge (which will post sometime today).  The theme for this week's challenge is "Dark and Gruesome".  As a DT member, I do my best to give you guys and gals some inspiration for the challenge.  What do you think?  Is this dark and gruesome enough?  If not, I'd be happy to refer you to some of my previous projects this month :)

#2 
Image: Strange Skin
Digi elements: Oscraps
Coloring: PSE8
Haunted House: unknown

I made this because I am obsessed with zombies.  Also, unless they didn't go by the posted preview, the challenge this week at MM is "HDH113 -Heinously Haunted House".  I don't have any real haunted house images and truth be told...after the 31 Days of Halloween...I was too darned tired to alter an existing birdhouse or any other item.  I had grand plans...zombies coming out of windows, ghosts flying out of chimneys, and cobwebs and bats galore.  Alas...I am pooped out!  Instead, I used this silhouette of a haunted house and combined it with digi elements and the zombie stamps.  I hope this counts for the challenge.  I really like this project.  It's not my best work, but it's fun!

 #3


I made this third project because I am OCD and prefer things in odd numbers.  LOL!   I need help!

Background: Itkupilli
Digi pumpkin and leaves: Oscraps
Thank you, Horrifying Hoppers, for your support and lovely comments throughout the 31 Days of Halloween.  You gals rock!!!
Mwah!

Sentiment: Simply Betty Stamps

I colored my image in PSE8 and then decreased the opacity so the background shows through a bit and the image looks a little more ghostly.

See you tomorrow for Halloween!!!

Here is my offering for today:
(click image to enlarge)
Coloring: Copic markers
Background: Found online and borrowed.  I really must learn to add the blog addy to files when I save them so I can give credit where credit is due.  The only reference I have is 109974_dungeon 3d.  I plan on drawing my own dungeons in the near future so I can avoid this whole borrowing issue.

The zombie gal was scanned to my pc (after coloring) and the background was removed with PSE8 which enabled me to add her to this scene.

Have a creeptastic weekend!

Today's project is dedicated to Kapree and her family. 
 Congratulations on the safe and happy arrival of baby Millie. You and hubs will make great parents!
I plan on getting some iron transfer paper and make a cute pj set for baby Millie with this image so little Millie can always be reminded how much her Mummy loves her.  For those that do transfers of this type remember to reverse the image prior to printing otherwise the writing will come out backwords.

Background: Itkupilli
Other: digi heart, source unknown

Cheers!

(click image to enlarge)
What can I say?  I just felt like doing something a bit different today.  The zombie head is from Smeared Ink's "Zombie Pinups" digi stamp set.  The sentiment is a digi from Simply Betty Stamps.  The background was a black and white image I found on the web and did some distressed digital coloring on it.  The trick or treat bag is Kitty Designs on Oscraps.  The other parts...legs and wings and such are from various Itkupilli collage sheets. Everything was put together in PSE8.

Here's an additional project.  I know I should have saved this for another day, but I'm in a whimsical mood and I just really wanted to share my creation.  I'm horrible like that!  I just don't want to wait...I want to show my work right away!  That's why I don't work ahead in the 31 days!

I used a Rick St. Dennis image in this.  He is one of our generous sponsors.  I colored witchy-poo in photoshop and added her to digital scrap elements from Kitty Designs on Oscraps

Have a great day!

CAUTION! 

CUTE ALERT! CUTE ALERT!

This is a message from the emergency broadcast system.  A project of severe cuteness has been sighted on Lady Brayton's blog.

  This is NOT a test!  I repeat, this is NOT a test!

  If you need a dose of horror, please refer back to previous projects. 

 I assure you I have not lost my mind...completely anyway.  When that happens I will most likely be found painting rainbows with smiley faced clouds (not that there is anything wrong with that type of thing).  I actually was inspired to do this project for the Rock n Rolla challenge on the Smeared and Smudged forum.  The only fitting images I own are these two cuties from Simply Betty Stamps and I had the perfect digi scrap elements to go along with it (oscraps).  It's nice to make something whimsical once in awhile.  I heard even our own Black Dragon has done such a thing in the recent past. 
Ouch!
I think BD just singed my backside all the way from England!  She is wickedly accurate with her aim!

(click image to enlarge)

Today's project uses several digi stamps.

 "Build a Graveyard" (graves, tombstones, statue, and cobblestone arch), "Zombie Headshot" (the see you zombie and the drool face zombie head poking up by the statue), and "Zombie Pinups" (I think you can guess which zombie belongs to that set)!
Rick St. Dennis Prize Pack digi set (I used the old walking zombie)
Make it Crafty: freebie Halloween boy zombie

I'm still trying to learn how to make mist and fog.  I may have gone a bit overboard.  LOL!  Anyway...I hope you are not getting sick of me and my zombie obsession.  I will be entering this into HDH111 Lurid and Looming Landscapes...for obvious reasons!

Cheers!

Today's project is a bit gruesome...even for me.  I'll blame my illness for my twisted design.

Here is my offering for today:

I found this cool operating room pic here.  I added images from Smeared Ink's digital sets Creepers, Gross Anatomy, and Mad Science.  The brain in the jar is from Smeared Ink's Babies of the Damned digi set, the eyeball jar I made myself, and the sentiment is from Smeared Ink's Zombie Pinups digi set.

Have a Frightful Weekend!

I altered a photo I took and added a Rick St. Dennis image.  This image, as well as several other cool images, is part of a prize pack Rick designed as a daily prize giveaway for the 31 days blog hop. 
Here is a little ATC I made at the last minute.  I decided I needed to look at some bold colors today to perk me up.
I used one of the "Creepy L'il Grumpies" rubber stamps, copic markers, DCWV cardstock, and my MS drippy goo punch.

Cheers!

Guess what?  No digital coloring in today's project.  I got inky!
I stamped the heart and key from Tattered Angels with versa mark and heat embossed the image with Zing embossing powder and my trusty heat tool.  I then used a bunch of Distress inks to make the background.  The bride of Frankenstein is a Strange Skin digi and is colored with copic makers and fussy cut.  A few pop dots and some backing paper and I have a project. 

Hooray!

Thanks for Looking!

I thought I'd give everyone a break from my zombie obsession.  I used images from Simply Betty Stamps' Steampunk Halloween collection.  They are colored digitally and placed upon digi backgrounds.  The first background was found online.  I believe it's from a video game, but I'm not totally sure.  The second background is from Itkupilli.  The sentiments on both projects are Simply Betty's as well.

Cute, huh?! 
I used images from Smeared Ink's "Babies of the Damned" digi stamp set.  They, and the brain rattle, were colored digitally in PSE8.  Please note that I do not envison these as evil dead babies that went to hell.  I see them as their own little species...innocent, cute, live demons that just happened to have a demon mommy and daddy. They like to play and hug just like regular babies and toddlers...they just happen to have a different dietary plan!  Come on!  Don't you just want to cuddle with them?  Be careful though...the little one is teething!  I added the demon cuties to a digi scrap page I created and put drop shadows around the kids for depth.  The scrap kit was purchased at oscraps.  I hop you enjoy!

I used a wicked devil digi from Delicious Doodles (say that 10 times fast)!  I printed him on copic x-press it cardstock and colored him with copic markers.  I then scanned him to my pc and added him to an Itkupilli background and outlined him and the sentiment in flames.  The sentiment is from Smeared Ink's "Zombie Pinups" digi stamp set.  Your next stop on the hop is Jane's blog.

Day 9 of 31 Days of Halloween

Welcome Back!

Today is Day 9  of 31 Days of Halloween sponsored by Smeared and Smudged.

The hop goes live everyday in October at 9:00 am Pacific time.

The Hop List is on my sidebar. 

GORE  ALERT!   GORE ALERT!   GORE ALERT!  

For those hopping for the grand prize that are opposed to gore, please feel free to fast forward to the bottom of the page and leave a generic comment. No offense will be taken. I am posting a zombie pin-up with her insides hanging out.  I think it's funny, but there are many that would think it's nasty and in poor taste.  Let's agree to disagree :)

 

Here is my offering for today:

(click image to enlarge)


 
 


I used a zombie and sentiment from Smeared Ink's "Zombie Pinups" digi stamp set.  She is colored digitally.  I used the sketch from Smeared and Smudged's October Sketch Challenge, the color scheme from Smeared and Smudged's GDT challenge, and digi papers and elements.  Some of my colors are slightly off and I added purple, but overall I think I came close.  I flipped the sketch 90 degrees to the right.  II will also be entering this card into HDH109 "Inner Workings".  I think it's obvious that my take on the challenge was quite literal :)  Can you see this zombies inner workings?

Day 8 of 31 Days of Halloween. GORE ALERT!

Welcome Back!

GORE ALERT!  PLEASE DO NOT LET THE KIDDOS SEE THIS IMAGE!

For those hopping for the grand prize that are opposed to gore, please feel free to fast forward to the bottom of the page and leave a generic comment.  No offense will be taken.  I am posting a pretty gruesome zombie that resembles Tori, just not nearly as cute.  It is a Smeared Ink Stamp colored digitally with a bark texture overlay for depth, dimension, and aging purposes. The image can be bought as a single or as part of the digi set "Zombie Headshot".   The background is a picture I took of a grotto in a cemetery in Naperville, Illinois.  I am leaving enough space so you can make the kids leave the room before scrolling down to see the real image.




Today is Day 8 of 31 Days of Halloween sponsored by Smeared and Smudged.

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!

If you want to start from the beginning, click here.


Here is my offering for today:

I almost didn't post this. I feel as though it's unfinished. Perhaps I need to make it a night scene or add fog and mist? I guess I'd better get out my photoshop for dummies book and figure out how to do it! The reason I did post this is because I think it's pretty neat. I like combining stamps with realistic items to see how well I can make them blend. The photo is one I took of a cemetery on Macinac Island, MI. The tombstones and cobblestone arch are from Smeared Ink's "Build a Graveyard" digi stamp set. I then added two of Simply Betty Stamps' Steampunk Halloween Collection to the scene.

Update!


I found a tutorial on you tube.  Gotta love you tube tutorials!  Here are two first time attempts for me.  First up, fog and mist:



Now a little extra fog with light rays coming through:
Is it too misty?  Which is your fav?



Have a great weekend!  See you hoppers tomorrow!
