You’re Standing on My Tail

I am totally stoked to bring you my very first card featuring Lil’ Grumpies from Smeared Ink. I love this set! I have a feeling that this will definitely become one of my “go to” sets! Here’s my card:

Tail1

How great are these guys??? And they come with some of the funniest sentiments. Like this one here…”You’re standing on my tail.” How great is that??? And if you remember my Damon card from last week (and I am quite certain many of you do!), the “Suck it up” was from this set as well.

Tail2

Here’s a close up of my coloring. Done with my colored pencils by Spectracolor! I pop dotted the purple Grumpie. I really think these guys are hilarious!

I also love that the sentiments are done in a typewriter font. So cool! If you haven’t checked out the Smeared Ink line, please do! They are all on 8.5x11 unmounted rubber sheets. Let me just say this…this is the thickest rubber I have ever come across! You will LOVE the quality of these sets!

Wanna see more of the Lil’ Grumpies? Well, I’ll have some more to show you shortly (I already made 2 other cards with them!), and there are a ton of amazing examples on the Smeared and Smudged group. Go and see! Have an inspiring day!!!

Dude. For real. I left a freakin' comment last night, like 10 30. I also left one for another pal. NEITHER OF YOU HAVE YOUR COMMENTS. WTF??? It's a freakin conspiracy. someone is hacking into my computer.
Anyway, I love this!!! I told you, you color like IDK what. And the paper makes the grumpies and the coloring POP.
Awesome x1000. Bitchin' for sure!!

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!
