TTIC Color Challenge #3: Bella & Edward’s Wedding Flowers

I am happy to be bringing you the 3rd Twilight Tuesday Color Challenge today! These are pretty different from the normal Twi-colors of red, black and white, so I am really excited about this challenge! Here’s what I wrote on the TTIC Blog:

Here are the Bella and Edward’s Wedding Flowers! We’ve got Lilac, Orange Blossom (yes, for those of you with green thumbs out there, orange blossoms are actually white…but just work with me here ok? ;) ) and finally, Rose. It’s a very soft palate. And I hate the winter… so I needed a pick me up with these colors! These are the lovely flowers Alice picked out for the Wedding. What a pretty combo of flowers don’tcha think? So create something soft and beautiful for this challenge. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Like I said, different right? So here’s what I came up with:

Now, I’m still sick with this awful cold… so the card is missing a little pizzazz… but at 9PM when I was working on this card last night, the pizzazz-making part of my brain just wasn’t working. That being said, I do think it’s a really pretty card.

I used one of my Sweet Pea Stamps from ching-chou kuik’s Fantasy Art Collection. Yeah, I know… those are all fairies right? Well, so was she… I cut off her wings. I asked her permission first, I promise! I just thought that she made a beautiful bride. A bit more daring then Bella, but if Bella were in to back-bearing couture, maybe this is what she would have looked like!

Here’s a close-up of my bride. Please click on any of the photos to see the bigger. I used colored pencils for her, with a touch of Stickles for her jewelry.

I just happened across the paper with the roses… perfect for this challenge! And I loved the silver foiling on it too! So elegant, right? This whole card is made from just scraps I had laying around. Oh! The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday by the way.

I currently have a very squirmy Rhi on my lap as I type this… so here’s where I sign off. But, please make sure you visit TTIC on Thursday for our last Color Challenge. No, I’m not happy about it, but I promise, it’s a great one!

In the meantime, 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!
