Frankie & Alchemist Chamber

The challenge this week at Lil Lolita Boutique is to use skulls and I combined it with the 5th Day of Halloween challenge from Simply Betty Stamps using ghosts. I made this card and bookmark combo using the new Lil Haunts Frankie and set it up using the Alchemist Chamber as the background.


As a final touch, I added Crystal Effects to each bottle to make them look more like glass. Here’s the bookmark separate from he card. If I could go back, I’d trace around the yellow moon sense it’s hard to spot. 😀


Only a portion of the Alchemist Chamber was used on the card. This was my first time coloring something where the source of light was constantly in a different direction so that was an interesting challenge! I didn’t even see one of the candles until I was already on top of it – luckily I was already using a lighter color.

Did you know? The International Date Line (IDL) is a generally north-south imaginary line on the surface of the Earth, passing through the middle of the Pacific Ocean, where the date changes as a ship or airplane travels east or west across it. Crossing the IDL traveling east results in a day or 24 hours being subtracted, so that the traveler repeats the date to the west of the line.

Fashionette Lil Lolita 50’s Lilith

I made this card using Fashionette Lil Lolita 50’s Lilith from Tickled Pink Stamps. This challenge this week at Lil Lolita Boutique is to create a card or project based on the sketch provided. I rotated it and used it to decorate a notebook I had available.


I used paper-piecing on most of it and made sure to glue everything down instead of using tape. Now it really is stuck together and great for using! The other challenge is about the letter G and to create a card or project using these three things: Girl, Green, Glisten. For glisten, I sprayed a shimmering mist over the notebook and also used Crystal Effects on the skulls and shoes!

Did you know? A matryoshka doll, also known as a Russian nesting doll or a babushka doll, is a set of dolls of decreasing sizes placed one inside the other. The first set was carved in 1890 by Vasily Zvyozdochkin from a design by Sergey Malyutin, who was a folk crafts painter. His eight doll set was inspired by a set of Japanese wooden dolls representing the Seven Lucky Gods.

Did you know? Tiddlywinks is an indoor game played with sets of small discs called “winks” lying on a surface, usually a flat mat. Players use a larger disc called a “squidger” to pop a wink into flight by pressing down on one side of the wink. The objective of the game is to cause the winks to land either on top of opponents’ winks, or ultimately inside a pot or cup
