Day 4 of the 12 Days of Creepmas, Dilly Beans: Traditional Colors & Nice People!

Good morning!  I got the best night's sleep last night - dontcha just love that?  I went to bed around 10 and slept until 7:15.  And I only got up once during the night - bonus.  I woke up feeling rested and refreshed, such a great feeling!  BUT - I forgot to pre-post last night, I'm so sorry (I thought I was late, but it turns out I was just on time - phew!!! LOL).  You should have arrived here from Monique's blog if you're hopping with us - so first up is my creation for the 12 Days of Creepmas at Smeared & Smudged:

Today is a Smeared Ink day, so I used Dance with Death and added some mistletoe - I LOVE this image.  I used Emerald Green and Silver Foil Smooch Spritzes, love that stuff.  DP is from MME.  Ribbon is from SU!  Now hop on over to the Incredible Ike!
We have a new challenge for you today at:

 I used Mimi's Witch Costume Framed for this one, I love using Halloween images for other purposes so I turned Mimi into a Christmas Witch.  :)  I paper-pieced almost everything on her - her shirt, mask, hair, hat, and hat band.  I colored her skin with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and her lips with a marker.  The stars are colored in gold glitter.  DP is from Authentique (LOVE this paper) - and then I just added some pearl stickers, rick rack and ribbon tags.

And for this card, I used our "JOY" bubble sentiment and Ruby Sitting, same paper as above.  I love the way it came out, but it was hard coloring Ruby so tiny.
Next up - a couple of months ago I ended up speaking to an artist named Roberto Barrios from Argentina who draws comic book art.  Roberto's art had been stolen and re-sold by those nasty Papelitos people, and I had sent him an e-mail notifying him about what was going on.  He had never heard of digi stamps or images and asked me to explain what they are used for, so I did.  He was so thankful to have been notified, he actually drew me 2 images to use in my crafting - wasn't that sweet?  Here's a card I made with one of them:
 I colored her with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and added white Fun Flock to the fuzzy parts of her cap and coat.  I used left-over scraps of DP from MME from last year's batch of Christmas cards (I love being resourceful!).  Isn't she adorable?  Thank you again, Roberto!  :)  I'll be coloring up the other image and creating something to share soon!  Peace.
