Friends Having Fun Color Challenge #2

Hello! I cannot believe it’s already time for another Friends Having Fun Color Challenge! Here are the colors I chose for this month:

Aren’t they pretty? I love how warm they are!

This month, we were honored to be sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps. Jodie offered the Kaleidoscope Krew a digi to work with. I had such a hard time choosing! There were adorable monsters, cute dinosaurs… but then Laura brought the Skelekinz to my attention! They are SO cute! Here’s what I created:

CC #2

Isn’t she adorable? I have big plans for her. She will definitely be going on a layout of The Girl in her PJ’s. And I love her hair and rattle!!!

Of course I used my colored pencils to color her in, and I aged the edges a bit with some Antique Linen Distress Ink and some Terra Cotta Chalk Ink.

The card is made up with some fab Cosmo Cricket paper. And the sentiment is from Inkadinkado. This card came together so quickly, and I love the end result!

Won’t you play along with the Kaledeiscope Krew??? You have a whole month to get your project uploaded to the Friends Having Fun blog. Need more inspiration? Check out the rest of the Krew’s amazing projects!

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!
