Fitztown Rocking Zombie

For this project I chose a Fitztown Halloween 3, Zombie image.
I began with a black tag, some water and Twinkling H20 (Good News).  I covered the entire tag and dried it with a heating tool. Using Tim Holtz's Distressor tool I distressed all around the edges and made a few "peekaboo" tears and placed small pieces of silver screens from Making Memories behind them.

I did some masking with the screen pieces with white Ink It Up Pigment Ink from Michaels
I used the following Copic Pens: 
G00, G21, G82, C0, C2, C5, C7. 
I then used some of Ranger's Inkssentials ATC natural sticky-back canvas cards.  I inked it up with TH Distress Ink, Black Soot to make it look dirty.  Then I cut a few pieces, removed the backing and used a piercing tool to loosen some of the strands.  I covered her entire face with it and snipped off any strands that didn't appear natural.  Threw in some zombie sign stickers from Michaels.
Added one of Finnabair's metal gear.  I love the look of her gears. I used some of the tape from the tape gun to create some spider webs. 
Pass on by Fitztown's store and Challenge Blog for some new images that were added and what the designer's came up with.
Enjoy everyone!

Fitztown Christmas New Releases Coming Soon!

Welcome everyone, I want to share this new Christmas image coming soon to the Fitztown store.  I printed the image on Copic paper and I adhered a piece of 5X6 chipboard because I knew I would be adding alot to this project.
I used the following Copic Pens:
E000, E2, E4, E13, E33, E57, Y2, Y6, Y26, RV25, G00, G2, G12, G29, G94, B00, B5, B12, B41, W1, C0, C2, C6, C8, C10, C100,  Copic Multi-Liner 3.0 

After all the coloring was done, I used a Gelly Glaze Pen to add the glittery magic of Christmas.  Glossy Accent Crackle was applied to the snow areas throughout the image.  On the children and the animals I applied just Glossy Accent.
 Take a close look at the snow and ice on the roof.

Gotta love Liquid Applique'!
I wanted the snow covered ground to give the feel of icy cold snow.

Just look at the texture on this side view shot of Santa's facial hair, the children's outerwears.   Lots of fun! 
Enjoy folks and again, please visit the challenge and store as well as my site here comments are always welcomed.  I was totally inspired by this Fitztown Christmas image.
Stay safe everyone...

Fitztown Challenge - Halloween Vampire

Hello everyone, I'm here with another canvas project, this time it is a halloween image from the Fitztown store.  I have lots of ideas for halloween and not enough time.  Hope you keep checking back. 

 This canvas began with some Tim Holtz Distress Paints, Seedles Grapes, Spiced Marmalade, Black Soot as well as Color Box, Frost White which I applied only in the center of the canvas and very little.  I brushed the DP from left to right lightly allowing only the tip of the brush to spread the "semi dry" paint.   I began on the left side of the canvas and only brushed towards the right.  I did the same on the right side of the canvas, I brushed from right (with the tip of the brush) towards the left.  A medium to large flat brush worked great for me.   Don't worry about imperfections.  Nobody's perfect...

 After the canvas was completely dry, I used one of Prima's stencil (no name) item #564247 and taped it to keep it in place.  Then I used my Color Box, White Frost ink pad onto the stencil.  I wanted it to look like lightning in the background.
 Then I used Dylusions Stencil, Cheered Dots with black Archival ink.  I used it right side up and then turned it upside down and repeated the inking. 
This fence is made out of TH's Grunge Paper and I used TH Edge Die, On the Fence.  Here I applied TH Crackle Paint, Peeled Paint.  This is the kind of project that I just can go on and on with... pure IMAGINATION.   
 Black cardstock was used to punch the bats and the flying witch out.  Various punches were used.

Here I used TH's Die, Crescent Moon ran it through my Vagabond using vellum paper.  I stamped a Smeared Ink image with black Archival ink right onto the moon and went around the edges with both black and white ink.  On the lighter side of the moon I used black ink and on the darker side of the moon I used white ink.  I then dried it with a heat tool (not too much) and ran it through the Vagabond with a TH Embossing Folder, Starry Night.  Later, I adhere it with Vellum tape so that the adhesive doesn't show through the vellum. 
 TH Black Crackle Paint was applied on the upper left and right corners of the canvas, when dried I lightly went over it with Frost White by Color Box.   Here you can see the stars from the Starry Night Embossing Folder.  The green pebbles are from Ashland, I used a glue gun to adhere them. 
 The image was colored in with the following Copic Pens:
G00, G07, G21, G40, YG06, YG11, Y00, Y02, R20, 24, R29, R81, R83, R85, RV93, C0, C2, C4, E000, 110.  I covered her top with Glossy Accent
 I added small adhesive pearls on her waist and on the bottom part of her dress. 
The last addition was the umbrella she holds.
 Don't forget to visit the Fitztown store and the Fitztown Challenge Blog. 
Have a great one everyone!

Smudgefest Day 7

Updating log at this moment.
Wow!  I made it through the week!  Here is an image that Smeared & Smudged gave to us to work on for this last day. 
I began by using my Copic Pens and worked it into the image.
 I took a sheet of metal, pulled out my Vagabond and used Tim Holtz's Embossing Folder then I used TH Movers & Shapers, Butterflies. 

 I colored the butterfly with my Copic and used a TH's Pen Nib and placed it between the wings. 

 I then inked around the card itself with Black Soot.

Glad you came by for this last day's challenge that had been going on at Smeared & Smudged.  I kept it simple today... I'm pooped!  You guys worked me this week.  I enjoyed it very much!

Smudgefest Day 6

Saturday Splatter Challenge Day 6
 Hello Bloggers, here is another 5X6 flat canvas.  I used Tim Holtz's Distress Inks Festive Berries, Aged Mahogany, Peeled Paint, Crushed Olive, Dusty Concord and Black Soot.
I used the heart image from Smeared Ink and A Tim Holtz stamp image and inked him lightly with DI Aged Mahogany.  I used my Copic Pens,
 R29, R20, E000, C1, C3. 
I popped him with Pop Dots and put him aside. 
Here is a side view of both images.
After I colored in the heart I took a small Tim Holtz's Arrow snipped in half and glued it to the heart.  I also cut a piece of metal mesh by Making Memories and attached it to the lower part of the heart (keeping it together).
I attached a black thin metallic wire from the man to the heart.  The heart was put aside while I worked on the canvas itself.
I used TH Distress Stain, Black Soot around the edges of the canvas and then used Mod Podge making up and down strokes.  I also used Mod Podge on the the man image.  After it dried, I placed both images where I wanted onto the canvas.  Then I began to place my "blood drops" onto the canvas.  A few were placed on the heart and I used some to create a puddle of blood underneath the bleeding heart. 
The last thing I added were the clouds in the background.  They were created by using Liquid Applique by Marvy.  It is applied then heated with a heat gun and it puffs up.  I've used this product for years now.  They come in various colors.   Pass by the Smeared and Smudged Challenge and be inspired.  Smeared Ink is where you can purchase the images.
I'm thankful that you visited, hope you can come again.
