Darque Obsession

Hello my Lovelies! Welcome to a spectacular release! My fang-tastic friend Tonya is releasing her very first set of digital stamps! And it is SOOOO up my alley ali! ;}


How friggin’ amazing are these chicks??? Yes Tonya, I am obsessed. I can do SO much with these images! You should all know by now how crazy I am for all things Vamp… this is no exception! Wanna see what I made with “The Seductress”?


What do you think? I think she’s gorgeous! I NEED to have that dress (even my husband says so!)! I know, ya need a close up right?


She is of course colored in with my colored pencils. And I added Burgundy Stickles to her crosses, and some touches of my Sakura pens. Please click on any of the images to see them bigger.


Here you can see the glimmer from the gel pens. I tried something different with her hair. I wanted it blue black obviously, like I’ve seen some folks do with Copics. I struggled a bit with this. I like how it came out, but it wasn’t what I was after. Any suggestions?


When I was younger (like, 12) I was totally into decorating t-shirts. It was my thing, ya know? I lived for it. So I had/have a bajillion rhinestones from way back then… And I thought the card needed some pop… but wasn’t sure of what. So I remembered of the huge rhinestone box that I have been stowing away for the past 2 decades (that sounds SO weird to me! Am I really that old???), and decided to bust that bitch out! Enter the super huge rhinestones. Seriously, that oval one is the size of a quarter! But I think it was just what the Doctor ordered!

I Glimmer Misted the background, added some cool paper, and a loop of picot ribbon. Ooh! And let’s not forget those fab Kaiser pearls in black!

So, are you into it??? Can you handle this??? Don’t you want to color her in??? You can of course, only get these sinfully beautiful images at Tonya’s shop. Click HERE to go straight to these gorgeous creatures. You can also visit Tonya’s blog to see more creations with these fabulous new digis.

I love them because they are so different from what’s out there. And again, they are totally my style! I will be coloring them all in many times over, I assure you! And yes, you will get to see all of my many versions! So if you’re not already… come and get Obsessed with the rest of us!

You don't need ANY advice on that blue-black hair! YOU ROCKED IT! (but, I'm no pencil expert so I have no idea if this works.. maybe try a blue with a gray overlay?) I love that you always come up with cool stuff to do on your cards! I can't wait to see more from you on these! Thank you for showcasing for me!

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!
