The Many Allys of Allywhitecat and Haunted House Design Teams challenge and March Blog Hop with Smeared Ink

Welcome...and the March winds in West Texas are blowing...tumbleweeds the size of little Volkswagen and the dirt to go with it.Forget the make up today! haha..
I wanted to share two things with you.
my entry to
I have chosen a beautiful image from Ike's store called "Bite Me" I have a confession..I practise drawing ..because I want to be like Ike when I grow up hahaha I want my journals to rock the house down with awesome faces..well sadly I am not there yet.
I chose blue hair and white eyes. Yes I love that feel. Look at the hair..can you imagine drawing that hair? wow! I colored with prisma pencils and watercolors. here she is
The second thing I want to show you is my bottle using
My goodness the stamps are so beautiful "Nymphs"
My bottle was done differently than I have ever done it before. I put gesso on the bottle let it dry and then used Dylusion spray inks then I waited a day and used Mod Podge over it adding my image.
I am out of wire because I wanted my son to wire wrap some beautiful beads I have that will go so beautifully with this project..and a 80 mile trip was not in our plans lately but I will get that finished soon.
Internet is dragging tonight and I am having extreme trouble making this post so please forgive if I cannot get the blog roll up I will keep trying if I do it will be on the side bar.
Take care

The Many Allys of Allywhitecat and Smeared Inks Red Rubber Nymph Set and my SWEETNESS from Hollie's Blog

Good morning everyone. I  think we are seeing signs and wonders of SPRING ...I hope so anyway!
What a perfect red rubber set to come out for the season. Smeared inks red rubber set Nymphs has been released and mine came in the mail this past week so I will be sharing as I make a few projects.
If you have not joined the red rubber group and would like to here is the link.
Here is a preview of the set you can ask for.
I made two post cards and a journal page from this set I have actually made more but unable to finish some of my projects due to the need to go to Michaels and get goodies for them.
This is a post card I made using three different stamps from the set I received. It is made using Dylusion spray inks which are fabulous. The nymph is colored with prisma pencils and prisma markers...

I used a Tim Holtz /Stampers Anonymous "Post Card " stamp on the back. It is still lacking ribbons flowers and charms but this gives you a idea.
again you can see it is the same stamp but I left her dress off which is an additional stamp.

I used the Dylusion inks again and a stencil girl stencil with Tim Holtz acrylic dabbers...and his/ Stampers Anonymous "Post Card" stamp.
I have show you the two pages I made using Dylusions ink sprays?? yes well I am blogging them today with this post.
Thanks for stopping in and have a great week.

The Many Allys of Ally white cat and Sweet Pea stamps Ching Chow Kuik Sparkling Moon

Welcome to my blog.
Today I was in the mood to take wine bottles and see what I could come up with.I chose the sweet image from Sweet Pea Stamps called Sparkling Moon.

I put gesso on the wine bottle and let it dry and when it completely dried I painted over with Artist  Loft brilliant Blue. When that was completely dry I put two coats of Mod Podge on it.
I printed my digi on a larger scale to cover the bottle colored with prisma pencils and used Tim Holtz glossy accents to place it on. Then I put a coat of mod podge over it again.
I added threads ribbons and fibers and had fun.
