13 days of Halloween - Simply Betty - Big bad Halloween Blowout!

Happy Halloween!!!!  So sad that this is the last post of the 13th days of Halloween of Simply betty.  And this time the challenge is to Alter something but it has to be something other than a journal or card.

So I thought and thought about that one... I don't do many alterations... but I have seen some fabulous artist that do over at Smeared and Smudged Forum and so I have to give thanks to them for the inspiration.

My make was to transform a regular wood little box into something more!  And here's the picture of the before.  I had NEVER done anything of the kind... so it took me FOREVER!!! lol  There's lots of steps to this...

My inspiration came also from the digi that I wanted to use for this Amarantha Red Ribbon Digi

So I removed all the hardware of the box and then used my Liquitex modeling paste all over the exterior of the box.  Inside I painted it with my Deco Art Royal Ruby.

Once the exterior was dry I used Deco Art Moss Pearl paint and then the Deco Art Metallic lustre in black shimmer and iced Expresso.  I added some metal pieces to the side with some elmer glue.  I put it all back together.  I added some paper from DCWV - The immortal love series.  I added the digi that I had colored with my copics and covered the top with an acetate to protect it.

Here's the finished product!
I have to say that I was pretty impressed with how I managed to make it turn out!!!  I really love the added metal corners I think it really finished it off well.
Here's the front.  Just love the texture that the gesso gave!!!  It won't be my last piece even if it was long to make.
And here's the top with the great digi.  I think this digi was just perfect for this box!
and here's the inside look!
Pretty awesome transformation right?!?  I have to say that this has to be one of my favorite makes!

I'm entering this box in the following challenges:

  1. 613 Avenue Create - Anything goes with the twist of boxes, tags, etc. - did the twist :)
  2. dlart-thankful-thursday - Halloween
  3. Left of center challenges - vintage halloween - or LOC, I think I probably fit the theme this time!
  4. Haunted design house - Halloween adult stuff (yeah what can I say I really love playing with you guys when I can... so it's my last entry promise :) )

  6. Decorate to celebrate - Anything goes 3d!
  7. Divas by design challenge - Anything goes

Pumpkin Fairy Ellora - Digi Bells GDT

Hello and Happy Halloween to those of you that celebrate it!  It's my last time hosting the blog of Digi bells dt as a GDT.  I really want to say a big thank you for the fabulous Digi Bells Team!  It's been a real joy to be amongst such talented ladies even if it went by way too fast!

Because it's Halloween I thought I would use the great Pumpkin Fairy Ellora.   It's such a cutie who's quite strong to be able to carry that pumpkin almost as big as her!!!

So here's my card with this great image.

Hello everyone!  It's time for a new challenge over at Digi Choosday.

Demonic Babe

Ok... so I couldn't resist playing over at Simply Betty FB group.  There was a freebie given out and you had to interpret how you wanted to play with the great Demonic Babe.

I'm not feeling too good... So I figured I would play it dark :)  I went monochromatic colors but this time with the warm greys.  I added just a touch of red for her lips

Apple market

Hello!  So I'm still not feeling up to much... and I really really didn't want to miss out on the progressive challenge over at From the heart stamps.  I got the set for this month free for playing last month.

I was super relieved when I saw that the current sketch that they had over at the blog and the twist was CAS!  So I figured this would be what I would do for this!

13 days of Halloween - Simply Betty - Witching Hour

Hello!  So it's time for a new challenge over at Simply Betty and this time it's about Witches!!!!  But of course it can't be just the simple challenge of using a witch... it had to be something far off... lol So it's have your witch fly off the page... using pop up dots or wobble or something...

So that got me thinking of my initial card that I did to get into this fab competition.  I had used acetate to make my witch fly.  Of course I couldn't just do a card like I had done then because that would be lame... so I thought about what I could make... and ended up with a House!

So here it is using my Cameo silhouette and some imagination.  There's lots of pictures in this post... sorry in advance lol  I printed the fabulous Witchy Mrs Boo twice reversed so that I could place them on top of one another.
I added some foam stickers to this, a little charm spider dangling from the front door
Here's a closer look at that colored digi
And here's a closer look at the other side of the house
and my other Mrs Boo  funny how even when coloring at the same time with the same colors they don't quite come out the same...
and the last view of the house
It was pretty long to make and put together but it makes for one very fun Halloween decoration.  It's now sitting on my mantle

I'm entering this make in the following challenges:

  1. 613 Avenue create - Anything goes - bag, box, tags and more - this time I went different than the typical card :)
  2. Glitter n sparkle challenge blog - Halloween
  3. Pile it on challenge - Create a scene
  4. Red carpet studio challenge - Haunted Mansion
  5. That craftplace blog - Halloween
  6. Ooh-la-la-creations challenges - The witching hour
That's it for me for today!!!  Hope you have a fabulous Monday

Thinking spot

Hello everyone!  Hope you had a crafty weekend!!!!  I did check out stuff online but my mojo was off... so didn't create anything Friday nor Saturday!  So today I got up my courage and decided to tackle one of the progressive challenge before I'm too late for it!

This challenge is the great Deedees digis.  I got the set free since I had participated last month.  But you can get it in the store for a very low price.

Here's my make with this super cute set.  I put the little sentiment on the little board next to the pumpkin and mouse.

13 days of Halloween - Simply Betty - Zombies

Hello!  It's time for the next challenge over at Simply Betty Stamps and this time around it's about zombies!

So I had fun making something with the great Zombie Babe Betty

And I made something that I don't normally do which is more altered art... I used a little wood coffin that I painted in beige... then I painted it black and did a crackle finish.  I don't  know why but my crackling is never really good.... so I did some sanding to distress it a bit more...

I made it like she's coming out of the coffin.

I colored her with my copics.  And fussy cut her out.  I added a bunch of webbing and a spider.

Here's a closer look of the open view
And a closer look at the digi which was soooo fun to color!

I'm entering this make in the following challenges:

  1. Haunted design house - Halloween - adult version.  I think my coffin makes a good decoration but it's not the cutie type....
  2. Left of center challenges - Halloween
  3. Crafts 4 eternity - Halloween
  4. C.R.A.F.T. - Halloween
  5. Crafters cafe blog challenge - Spookable
  6. Decorate to celebrate - anything goes - but a decoration
  7. Stampavie and more - no card
That's it for me for today!!!!  Busy day!!!!

Num num

So there's one challenge that I really really try not to miss.... and I was totally going to miss it this time around and it's the Dilly beans challenge!  So I put together a really simple little Halloween make... but I'm thinking it's pretty good... Hope you like it as well...

I used the great image called 578-num-num.

And here's the card that I made with this great image!

Owl be there for you

Hey everyone!  How was your day?  It was a hard one for me... I have no mojo... so I try to force some coloring...  and today it was a scary time to be a Canadian.... not something that we are used too here... having 2 attacks to our military (one Monday here in the province of Quebec) and one today at Ottawa it's pretty scary....

My thoughts and prayers are with those who died and their families!

I'm sure that you are not here to read about the news... so I'll share with you a little card that I made with a digi from a fellow Canadian artist My whimsical little world it's the great  Spooky Owl.  I made this card for my dad for his Halloween.... he loves owls and I thought it would be perfect.

I used a sketch because right now the challenge over at My whimsical little world is about using a sketch which is great when the mojo is lacking... so using a sketch really really helps!!

Path of Positivity - Midway post - courage

Hello everyone! For our 19th challenge over at Path of positivity our theme is Courage!

And our fabulous sponsor is Sparkle n sprinkle

For this card I used the great Note Boy 1 for my card!  I thought he really represented well that theme because when you need Courage one of the best way to get it is through reminders from your friends!  And so sending little notes to let a friend know that you are thinking of them through difficult time can help them have the courage to go through the difficult time.

13 days of Halloween - Simply Betty - Traditional combo colors

Hello!  It's time for another challenge over at Simply Betty Stamps and this time around the challenge is about traditional Halloween colors - orange, purplu, lime green and black.

So... for my make I used the great image Little Ali Pumpkin

But I didn't do the traditional card for her... I decided to make a little Halloween jar :)  I did those for Christmas and they were a big hit!

So I printed the image twice reversed so that I could put her back to back and this way whichever way the jar is it's pretty.
