TTIC Color Challenge #2: Thoughts of Bella

Happy Tuesday! Today marks the second Twilight Tuesday Color Challenge, and I am so lovin’ this combination! But first, I have some exciting news! Some of the Smeared & Smudge Girls were making projects for the Haunted Design House blog. In fact, the fab woman that owns the blog is part of the S7S group! Well, last week, she issued a challenge about Fallen Angels. HERE you can see my contribution to the challenge. Well, I won! I am part of the Gruesome Twosome this week (which is awesome in and of itself!) but I also won the challenge so I’ll be getting this crazy cool stamp that I cannot wait to work with! Don’t worry, you will see my creations as soon as I have, well, created them! But on to this week’s Color Challenge!


Hello! Happy Tuesday! Alison here with our Second Twilight Tuesday Color Challenge! This week, my colors were inspired by Bella. I chose Garnet because originally, that was her favorite gemstone (before she went & changed it to Topaz for Edward's eyes!). Next, I picked Phoenix Sky Blue because Bella frequently mentions how she misses the colors of her hometown. Lastly, I decided that we need to throw a neutral into the mix, so I picked Forks' Sky. It's a grayish green. Don't get too thrown by the shade I chose... if you just use a regular gray, that's fine! But if you wanna try to really wow us... go for this a little more interesting, if not a wee bit dreary color! Can't wait to see your creations!!!

And here is what I created:


I used one of my newest stamps from Sweet Pea. Plate #29. Isn’t she gorgeous??? Sadly, I didn’t have the exact shade of grayish green that I wanted to use in my stock of colored pencils, but these grays work too. And it sure rained as if we loved in Forks here on LI yesterday! Buckets I tell you!!!


Here’s a closeup of my coloring… Please click on any of the pics to see them bigger! I also added a bit of Twinkle H2O’s to her skin and the background.


This is a crummy pic, but I included it so that you could see the shimmer. Love those Twinkles!!! But I love this stamp so much too! I can’t wait to color her again!!!

Our Design Team has fantastic projects to display for this weeks challenge – please go and check them out!

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!
