Beth’s Halloween Greetings

I wanted to share this Halloween card with you. I made it for Beth. I thought she might enjoy one of my creep-tastic creations!

I started of crinkling the corner of the card for some dimension. Then, I sprayed it with the 3 Halloween Glimmer Mists. Jack O’ Lantern, Haunted Shadow, and Raven. I wanted to give the effect of a sunset, so I sprayed the Jack O’ Lantern first, shooting it horizontally, then the Haunted Shadow, and last the Raven. I dabbed on some Black Soot Distress Ink (Ranger), then I added Amazing Glaze (JudiKins) to the outer edge of the card.

On a separate piece of paper, I stamped the crow and fence image (from Inkadinkado), sprayed it with Jack O’ Lantern, tore the edges and then inked it with Plum Wine (Ancient Page from Color Box). Next I pop dotted the piece on to the card.

But I thought that it still needed a little something…………

A little creepy spider. He’s also from Inkadinkado. And it was just the right little something that I needed to add. Well, Beth said she really liked the card, which made me very happy. So? Inspired to make something creepy? Well, pull out your Glimmer Mists and start spraying!!!

Wow! This is sooo cool! I've always wanted to play with Glimmer Mist but haven't taken the plunge b/c I don't know what colors to start with. I like the little spider too - he surely adds to the creepy factor :o)

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
