Day 31 of THE 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN WITH SMEARED AND SMUDGED




I'm Lady Brayton.  Welcome to my blog!

I am participating as a wicked blogger for THE 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN 
blog hop hosted by the Smeared and Smudged Forum.  
Today is the last day of the hop!

 For your convenience, I will keep the blog roll posted on the left sidebar of my blog.  The hop goes LIVE everyday in October at 9:00am PST. 
Your next stop on the hop is Lindsay's Blog.

Today is Day 31 of the 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

  I know many that think digital coloring is quick and easy, but it takes a lot more time than most would guess.  I actually color much faster with markers, but I like the look of digi and it saves money on copic refills ;)  I can't even tell you how long I spent on this sucker, but I wanted it to look immense!
I used "Don't go in There" by Rick St. Dennis. 

 Rick has been one of our sponsors for the 31 days of Halloween this year and last.  He has been generous enough to give a whole stamp collage sheet away daily!  I just wanted to give Rick the props he deserves.  You can check out his blog here.  Rick also runs a challenge blog called Sparkle and Glitter.  You should really check out the challenges!

I colored and assembled this creepy scene in PSE8.  The floor, ceiling, and outer walls were created by parts of photos I had manipulated.  Everything else is the stamped image including the ooze coming from underneath the door and the stone bricks surrounding the door.  It's a very detailed stamp!

You really, REALLY, don't want to see what's behind that door!
I was so inspired by this image.  I didn't feel as though it needed to be on a card or have a sentiment.  I think the image speaks for itself 
and I hope I helped bring it to life.

I was going for a creepy look.  Did I succeed?
HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

I hope this counts towards Halloween.  It has skeleton sheep...it's gotta count!
I made this tag for the GDT challenge on the Smeared and Smudged Forum.
Jenn Borjeson has been the guest designer for Smeared Ink this whole month. She has rocked her time as GDT so I had to play along with her challenge which was to use nursery rhymes or fairy tales and give them a dark twist. 

I used Smeared Ink's "Killer Bo Peep's Build a Garden" rubber set and got inky.  The rubber is retired except for those in Smeared Ink's RUBBER CLUB.  The set is offered in digital version here. Peep has been playing with some bad Voodoo by the looks of her staff and managed to raise the dead...sheep that is.

The tag background was made with Dylusions Spray Inks and stencils.  Bo Peep and her skeleton sheep were stamped with Memento ink in black and colored with Copic markers.  I used some Spica gel pens to add some shimmer.  I fussy cut the images and glued them to my tag.  

I used an awesome, ultra vivid orange glow skull from Creepy Glowbugg Concoctions  and I used a clay tombstone from Andrea's Smudgetastic  etsy shop.  I topped off the tag with orange fibers and the "Baad seed" sentiment.

Cheers!

I whipped up a quick little project using Itkupilli images, Lotta designs elements, and a Rick St. Dennis digi.  I had to add something creepy :)

Day 29 of THE 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN and Smudgy Antics Weekly Challenge

I'm Lady Brayton.  Welcome to my blog!

I am participating as a wicked blogger for THE 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN blog hop hosted by the Smeared and Smudged Forum

To learn more about the 31 Days of Halloween and to find out how non-bloggers can win prizes, click this link

 For your convenience, I will keep the blog roll posted on the left sidebar of my blog.  The hop goes LIVE everyday in October at 9:00am PST. 

Your next stop on the hop is Lindsay's Blog.


Today is Day 29 of the 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN and it is also time for the new
weekly challenge over at Smudgy Antics.
I have combined my DT project with my 31 Days project.


----------

The Challenge Theme for Smudgy Antics is
"GHOUL'S NIGHT OUT".
What do you think Ghouls do for fun?  Do they go to wild parties?  Do they sulk in a corner of the cemetery?  Do they busy themselves primping to look beautiful before they go out and hunt? 
 We want you to show us your idea of a Ghoul's Night Out!

----------

THERE HAS BEEN A CHANGE IN THE RULES.
There will be no more top 3 or random winner for the Smudgy Antics challenges.  The Smeared Ink Design Team will vote for ONE winner and that person will receive both a blog button and prize. You do not have to use a Smeared Ink image to win.  We pick the best of the entries so bring your A-game!  Also, please remember there is no back-linking allowed and you must be a follower of Smudgy Antics to qualify for a prize.

Here is my offering:
(click image to enlarge)

I used one of Smeared Ink's newest images "Killer Shoes" and "sentiment 2" from the "Ghoul's Night Out" digi set.  The singles and set should be in the store later today.  I zombified the legs attached to the killer shoes and added them to a real cemetery photo.  Yes, I am a cemetery tourist.  When I go on vacation I always need to visit the local cemetery.  

My idea of a Ghoul's night out is having the ghouls get all decked out looking as sexy as the undead can look and have a hunting party in the cemetery.  They try to lure their fresh, live victims with their looks, but if that fails they can always dig up some recently dead for a snack.  Since the ghouls hunt in parties or packs, they usually can get a decent live meal, even if he struggles :)  A few head stomps with the killer heels will get the job done! 

Pay close attention to the purple shoe on the left.  
It looks like the Ghouls got an unexpected appetizer :D

Be sure to visit the Smudgy Antics blog for more inspiration and do your best to play along this week.  You have until midnight Saturday PST to enter your Ghoulish project to Mr. Linky.

Cheers!

The papers are from Crafty Chaos Designs. 
 I wish Susan could see how many of us love and use her papers.  Susan, if you see this, you are missed dearly.  I hope your health improves so you can get back to doing what you love.

Dilly Beans is one of our many generous sponsors for today's scavenger hunt prizes.  Megan from Dilly Beans was kind enough to let the Smeared Ink DT play with some of her fun and quirky images.  I chose this lovely zombie cupid.  #266.  The papers are from Crafty Chaos Designs.  I hope Susan is able to open her shop again sometime in the future.  Her digi papers rock!  

I used the card sketch from the "Very Sketchy" challenge over at the Smeared and Smudged forum.  In case you didn't know, Smeared and Smudged is an alternative stamping group that focuses on alternative, Gothic, vintage, and the not quite right type of stamping.  You know those projects you make that get kicked off of mainstream sites?  They are accepted on the Smeared and Smudged Forum.  Also, they have additional monthly challenges with prizes, blog hops (like this one), ATC swaps, matchbook swaps, holiday swaps, and much, much more.  If you're not a member yet, you should check them out.

Cheers!

Here is my offering for today.  Sorry it's simple, but I'm exhausted and this was all I had in me.  I used this awesome Zombie Beauty Queen from Rick St. Dennis and colored her with Copic markers.  I scanned her to my pc and cleaned her edges as I'm a bit sloppy with my markers.  I found one of my favorite cemetery shots and screwed with the lighting quite a bit.  The original is really bright and lush with color.  I wanted this zombie queen to take center stage as that is what she was accustomed to when she was alive.

Cheers!

I have made a cute little ATC for your viewing pleasure.
I used a stamp and sentiment from Smeared Ink's "Creepy L'il Grumpies" rubber stamp set.  This is a non-digital project with the exception of the white outline and watermark.

The mummy was stamped with Versa Mark embossing ink, covered with black Zing embossing powder, and heat set on white card.  The boo was stamped with Black Memento ink, torn, and distressed with ink.  The Mummy was colored with Copic markers and Copic multi-liner pens.  I added some Copic opaque white in a few areas for highlights.  I stamped the upper left corner with a broken bloody glass clear stamp, distress ink was used.  I think ithe stamp is Inkadinkado, but I don't remember and I threw the packaging away years ago.  I then tore the paper, inked it with distress inks, and mounted it on shimmery black card cut to the ATC size.  Of course I had to break out the MS drippy goo punch.  

Off you go to the next blog.  Happy Hopping!

Today is Day 22 of the 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN and it is also the start of a new challenge over at Smudgy Antics so I will be combining my projects.
The challenge theme for Smudgy Antics is "MONSTER MASH"

Here is my offering:
(click image to enlarge)
I took my inspiration from the song lyrics of Monster Mash.
The Smeared Ink images I used are:
"Frankie" from the "Smell My Feet" digi set,
"Calypso" the Rat single (he doesn't come with exposed brains...I did that),
"Howling Wolf" from the "Part of the Pack" digi set, and
"Half Zombie" from the "Build a Graveyard" digi set.
Everything else came from a scrap kit I bought on oscraps.  The designer is Kitty or KChen.  For those that want to play with digi stuff, oscraps has a huge selection of freebies.

If you get a chance, play along with Smudgy Antics this week.  You have until midnight on Saturday PST to add your project to Mr. Linky.  You do not need to   use a Smeared Ink image to play or win and a Smeared Ink gift voucher is up for grabs.  Go check the challenge blog for more inspiration.
Cheers!

I went for cheerful today. 
 I know this may not seem cheerful to most, but I giggle 
with every peek I take at the whimsical scene I created.
The Sky is a photo I took.  The hedge is a photo I found on the net.  The grass and dirt road were made by me in PSE8.  The house is from Moonlight Journey and the sentiment is from my digital stash.  The stamped images are both from Rick St. Dennis.  The alien spider was won last year during the 31 days and Rick's new image, "gimme candy", was won playing one of Rick's games when he had an online party last week.  He is a very generous man and is sponsoring every single day of this hop.  By now you know, unless I state otherwise, everything was colored and assembled in PSE8.  When I do a hand's on or hybrid project I will let you know.  Thanks for stopping by!

I hope I'm not boring you all with my zombie love.  I know I've used Rick's zombie dude a few times already, but what can I say?  The image rocks!  I made another little postcard with zombie triplets wandering in search of brains.  
The background is from Moonlight Journey and the Zombies are from
 Rick St. Dennis.  You know the deal...colored and assembled in PSE8.  Now that the weekend is here I'm hoping to do some more hands on crafting.

Let me give you one more project in hopes of getting 
the zombies out of my system for a bit.
The background and spider webs are from my digi scrap stash.
The sentiment is from Smeared Ink's "Zombie Pinups" digi set.
The brain filled jars are from Smeared Ink's "Babies of the Damned" digi set.
I used "Sinister Zombie" from Smeared Ink's "Zombie Headshot" digi set.
Colored and assembled in PSE8.
Cheers!

I made a zombie scene which may end up on a card 
or perhaps be printed and used as a postcard.

All images are from Smeared Ink.
The background is "Grave Scene 3" from the "Holy City" digi set.  I believe this set will be coming back in rubber for those in Smeared Ink's Rubber Club.
I used "Half Zombie" from the "Build a Graveyard" digi set and made it look like he was emerging from the ground.  My last zombie is "Drool Face Zombie" from the "Zombie Headshot" digi set.  Can you tell I really like zombies?

Everything was colored and assembled in PSE8.  I added some light effects which are new to me.  I'm not sure if I like the light effect or not.  Perhaps after I finally find some time to get a good night's rest I will be able to decide.

Cheers!

Today is Day 17 of the 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN

Here is my offering:
(click image to enlarge)

I made a non-digital ATC for you today.

I started with 2.5" x 3.5" white cardstock and stamped the "Skull" with versa mark embossing ink and poured on the black Zing embossing powder.  After pouring the excess powder back into its container and spilling a good bit of it over my desk, I heat embossed the image.  I then inked the background with a few colors of Distress Inks (brick red, rusty hinge, and the limited edition yellow from the spring collection).  Next, the "Chain Link" was stamped twice with black Memento ink.  The last stamp was "Raven 1".  I did the heat embossing bit again.  All stamps were from Smeared Ink's
"Quoth the Raven" set which I own in rubber.

 I added some grays to the skull with copic markers and painted some highlights onto the raven with Copic opaque white.  The white was a little bright so I added some black distress ink over the white to dim it down.  I cut random triangles into the paper and then trimmed the atc to a smaller size and mounted the remainder to a 2.5" x 3.5" piece of shimmery black card.

Smeared Ink is bringing rubber back for those in the Rubber Club.
Click this link for details and you can own this set.
It comes on an 8.5" x 11" sheet of deeply etched unmounted rubber.

Thank you for all of the kind comments you have been leaving me :)
Cheers!

Although this is not good enough for a win, I wanted to enter my ATC to the Quoth the Raven, Nevermore Challenge of "Anything Poe's" to support my friends :)

I made a square card using the sketch below from the "Very Sketchy" challenge on the Smeared and Smudged forum.  The challenge goes through the entire month of October if you want to play along and yes, there is a prize.
As you can see, I flipped the sketch 90 degrees to the left.  Rather than embellishments or circle shapes I used bats.  My main image is "Busted Down Witch" from Rick St. Dennis.  Rick is sponsoring everyday this month!  The Busted Down Witch is colored digitally in PSE8.  The papers and embellishments came from various scrap kits that I purchased from oscraps.  
I hope to make it to day 14.  
Hang in there, gals!  Take one day at a time :)
