Sparkle & Glitter w/ RSD Part 2, SBBC#75, and LOC #73

I just so happened to get my Part 1 done over at Sparkle and Glitter the Rick St. Dennis EDT Blog in March for the Progressive Challenge that happens for 2 months.  And, was able to get Part 2, for April, done as well...woooohooooo for me!  It is a first!

For those of you who do not know, for Part 1 you must enter the challenge using one of Rick's super incredible images.  There are over 1,000!  And for all types of creativity as well.  For Part 2, if you get your project in on time, you get a FREE image to use for Part 2.  This month was a sweet little thang named Aloha Nui.

I love going to the dollar store and found these magnet boards for sale.  Of course had to buy a bunch and have used....3, including the project for this challenge.  So what if I've had them over 4 years...THEY ARE GETTING USED! 

Now, I am not so cutesy cutesy but had a fun time creating and coloring with this image.  I am also going to enter this into:

Ike's World Challenges #35 DT Post

Ike's World Challenges is onto Challenge #35 - Things With Wings

Please see what the WEEK 2 projects are and get inspired.

For this challenge I have used many images from Ike's and you can find them at Ike's Art.  Ike is so nice that we, the DT, get some images that have not been released yet.  So do not fret, they may pop up in the store or can be a FREEBIE that Ike offers with each challenge.  Don't miss out!

Images you can find in the store on my scrapbook page are FACE ON, BOTTLE 4, and THOUGHTS.  Images that I have also used are Witches Cauldron and Not The Sistine Chapel Hands.

Bubbles of Details

Page is from Me & My Big Ideas.  Those witches crack me up!

All images were printed onto Whisper White card stock.
Each was fussy cut and pieced together.

Markers, inks, Aqua Painter, and Copics were used to color in images.
Gold Smooch was spritzed onto the swirl coming out of the cauldron.

Saying is from Macbeth by William Shakespeare:
    "Fillet of a fenny snake,
    In the caldron boil and bake;
    Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
    Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
    Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
    Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing,—
    For a charm of powerful trouble,
    Like a hell-broth boil and bubble."

Words were redone in Word, printed out, cut out, and adhered to page.
Marker used to help define.

Ike's World Challenges #33 DT Post

I was not quick enough to get my project for TEAM B in over at Ike's World Challenges.
The current Challenge #33 - Colored Hair will be closed soon, so use that FREE image and get your project entered!

I have used the image called KT Frock which was a FREEBIE from Challenge #17.  So don't miss out on some wonderful images.  You can also see what else Ike has to offer from Ike's Art.

I just love seeing how freaked out the kids get at the Egg Hunts each year.  So this little one is just about as freaked out as you can get!  

Smudgy Antics - Daemon Thursday Post

I have made a calendar page using a digital image from the set called Daemon Horses, a digital paper from the set Honor The Dead, and a rubber stamp from the set Urban Decay.

Please see daily inspiration over at the Smudgy Antics blog and if you happen to use any Smeared Ink images in your projects be sure to enter the month long Smudgy Antics Challenge - Anything Goes.

Smeared Ink is so lucky to have many wonderfully talented artists as part of the image team.  This image was done by Susan Eisenhauer, aka Ike.

Smudgy Antics - Dreams Post

I recently went to Phoenix for a get away with some friends and now find myself playing catch up once again.
This post is for a Smudgy Antics post that was done on March 11th.

The inspiration for this page was inspired by Edgar Allan Poe and a challenge that was based off one of his works.

Quoth the Raven, Nevermore has month long challenges.  I will be entering this into Quest #42 - Dream On.

I have used both digital paper and stamps on this page.  The main image is from the digital set called Death Cab.  The digital papers on the background are from Poe Boy and Vintage Grunge.  Stamps are a set from the Rubber Club Past Offerings, Quoth The Raven.

Quote is from Edgar Allan Poe
"You are not wrong who deem
That my days have been a dream..."
