A Whole Lotta Stuff!

Hello all!  As you know, I have been forcing myself to step out of my cutesy zone lately and having fun with the darker side of crafting!  :)  My first project today is for the:

We had to use at least 3 of the colors in the sample - here's what I came up with:

I made an ATC with the Smeared Ink image Skull Roses, colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits in the dark green and 2 shades of purple - kept it simple by just adding some purple gemstone stickers and dragging the edges of the ATC through a black ink pad. 

Next up is a card I made for:

The Octopode Factory - Animals

Retro Sketches #12

I used the lion from The Octopode Factory, colored with Prismacolor markers.  DP and ribbon are from Stampin' Up!

And last for today is a card I made for:

Daring Cardmakers - Going Geek

Sketch Saturday #208

(Part of the requirements to enter the Daring Cardmakers challenge is to also include a link to Imagine That - so here it is!)  :)  This sweet image is a rubber stamp from Stamping Bella - paper pieced and colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits.  Sentiment is a rubber stamp from The Greeting Farm.  DP is from My Mind's Eye and flowers are from my stash.


  1. Busy creating again Jenn!!! Love the Smeared Ink skull in those colours for their challenge - fantastic! LOL I just love the Lion from The Octopode Factory - fantastic!!! Cute card with the Stamping Bella Image!!

  2. Jenn - I like your style. Your beautifully crafted cards made me smile as well. I love 'em all but naturally my favourite is the one for Daring Cardmakers - thanks for Going Geek with us this week!

  3. I love these - but then I love pretty much everything you make. Cute Leo birthday card and the girl is darling! Using a skull and the sentiment of peace together is very deep! Great stuff.

  9. All your projects are super but the skull ATC has to be my fav. The "dragging through an ink pad" technique really works well here.
