StampInsanity Challenge 11: Inspiration Picture

It’s time for another awesome StampInsanity Challenge! This week we were to use an inspiration picture. Here it is:

Isn’t it a rockin’ t-shirt??? I totally want it! And here’s the card that I made.

So at first, I was totally stoked about making this card. I colored in this version of Maddie and I LOVED her! Her dress came out perfect, I was diggin’ her hair, and I knew the card was gonna rock. I cut her out, and put her on my workspace while I was making my Bombshell Hop card. So somehow, some way, my poor little Maddie got ink on her face. Right by her mouth. And under her eye. Freakin’ great right?

Now I had to think quickly. I knew I didn’t have time to color in a new Maddie, so how was I going to fix her??? Well, after a clot of “concealer” on her pretty face, and a whole lotta Glaze pen, Maddie now looks like she had a bit of Botox. Needless to say, I am not happy. I should have used a regular marker, but I thought the Glaze would be pretty and keep your eye away from the mess. Wrong. Oh well. But her dress still looks fab!

I used a bunch of punches and dies for this card too. And 5 different papers!

After the disaster with Maddie’s face, I got a little discouraged about the card… but I really do like how it turned out in the end (except for those damn fish lips!). So I am sending you off now. Off to see the rest of the Groovy Gurlz’s fabulous creations. Enjoy! Have an inspiring day!

Ugh...so frustrating to spend so much time on an image and then have something stupid like a little ink smudge ruin it all! Happens to me all the time! Your mistake turned into a little hottie though! Her dress and hair are absolutely fabulous!!

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!
