Wild Flower Wednesday 15- Distress It!

I made a layout!!! Finally!!! I have been itching to scrapbook, but it takes me so much ore time to do a page then it does to make a card… So sadly, with all of my commitments, the scrapbooking has fallen by the wayside. But when I saw Jen’s Wild Flower Wednesday Challenge (to distress your project), I knew I HAD to play along!!! I love to distress! Plus, a few challenges back, I was lucky enough to win 3 digis of my choice! Wait ‘till you see what I did! Here’s 2 of the 3 digis I chose:

ryedigiWM-500x500

SagedigiWM-500x500

This is Rye and Skater Sage. Aren’t they so handsome? Well, here’s why I chose them. First, I don’t have a lot of boy stuff. Second, Skater Sage looks an awful lot like my Phoenix. And third, Rye is wearing one of Phoenix’s fave outfits! Wanna see how I made my digis look just like Phoenix???

Please click on the photos to see them bigger. I cut off the heads on both digis and swapped them! Doesn’t it look just like him now?

I am so happy with how Sage/Rye turned out! And yes, I dressed Phoenix specifically to take these pictures! How could I not? Plus, it is one of his favorite shirts!

So I distressed this page in subtle ways. I inked the green cardstock with Antique Linen and Weathered Wood Distress Ink. Then I tore up some of the paper with my Edge Distresser. I scribbled white on my letters, and scratched some blue around the negative corners that the paper and pictures created.

This was such a fun page to make! Especially because of the adorable digis I got to play with! Now I want to go and make some more!!! I just hope the kids sleep long enough so I can do it!!! Have an inspiring day!!!

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!
