Smeared & Smudged Challenge: "The Shining"

Each month, each Smeared & Smudged Design Team member has to create a card for a specifically assigned themed "group". This month, I drew the "Oh! The Horror" group, whose challenge was to create a card/project based on The Shining, which is one of my favorite movies from that genre.

Since I don't have any particularly scary stamps, this is what I came up with and I think it works and is more "me" anyway.

The wolf is from the Sugar Daddy set by Bombshell stamps, which is on sale now! "Hi" is from Bombshell's Classic Tattoo Alphabet set. The hole in the door is a stamp from Third Coast Rubber Stamps.

The wolf was colored with Copic markers. I hummed Warren Zevon's Werewolves of London ("Better not let him in!") while coloring, which made it even more fun. The patterned paper is from Cosmo Cricket. The hinges and door knob base are QuicKutz dies from silver metallic paper by FiberMark. I colored a pearl button silver for the door knob.

Thanks for visiting today!


  1. You did a great job with the challenge Kathi! The wolf looks pretty scary to me...... The Shining is a favourite movie with me too!

  2. Kathi, that is great!!! I have to admit, even when I was going through my 'dark' phase, I never did watch that movie... but I think everyone knows the door scene! Love it!

  3. Wow, what a fun card! Love the take on the challenge!
