WICKIDZ Preview Part 2, TOF Guest Designer, Dilly Beans, & Digital Tuesday

WOO HOO Day 2 of the Beyond the Burtonesque Preview of the fantastically creepy Simply Betty WICKIDZ digi stamps!

First up today is Boris, I printed him on Kraft cardstock and cut a square around him, roughing up the edges and dragging through black ink.  I then printed a sentiment from Dilly Beans, and mounted it all onto a Kraft cardstock base that had been stamped with a splotchy background stamp:

Next we have Margie, I printed her onto white cardstock twice, punching out and coloring the highlighted portion and matting onto a slightly larger circle.  Everything is spritzed lightly with Silver Foil Smooch Spritz and the white cardstock was dragged through a purple ink pad:

And last is Winnie, my personal favorite out of all 6 images!  LOL  I colored Winnie with Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits.  I used some clear embossing powder on the edges of the card and added some pearl stickers and the sentiment that I just printed in a word processing program.  Cardstock & heart punch from Stampin' Up!:

OK so if it wasn't exciting ENOUGH being a guest designer for Simply Betty, I also won a guest spot at The Octopode Factory, and this is my week!  So I'm psyched to be sharing my card for you today as a guest designer for:

The Octopode Factory Challenge - Bling it Up!

I used Imelda the Fortune Teller for both of my cards, colored with Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits and lots of glitter.  I also added gemstone stickers for additional bling.  My DP on the 2nd card is a very old one from Stampin' Up!  Sentiment is from Dilly Beans.
We have a new challenge for you at:

I love Megan's images so very much and this theme was right up my alley.  I decided to make one card and one ATC, here's my card using the awesome Sugar Skulls & Flowers image, printed once on the purple cardstock and then again on Kraft slightly smaller, colored with Prismacolor markers and Stickles, the teeth were colored with a Gelly Roll Glitter Pen:

And here's my ATC, using Sugar Skull & Flowers Framed printed on Kraft cardstock and colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits, Stickles, and a white gel pen:
