Love them!!! Here’s what I wrote on the FHF Blog:

Happy June!!! It's time for another Color Challenge with the Kaleidoscope Krew! This month, I chose some pretty wild colors... but don't be intimidated!!! Your mission is to work with Hot Pink, Lime Green, and Plum Crazy. Hot right??? Here's what I think of when I see these colors... the 80's, little girl's clothes, muscle cars, eyeshadow, hair color (wait...is that just me???). So many incredible options! What can YOU come up with???

Before I get to what the Krew has come up with for this month, I would like to make an announcement. Sadly, my dear friend Julie needed to say goodbye to the Krew and move on to some bigger adventures. I wish her all the best, and hope that she can pop in once and a while when time allows. We all love you, Julie!!!!!!! But on the bright side, another dear friend of mine, Danielle Hayes (from the Smeared and Smudged DT) has stepped in to take Julie's place. Please give Danielle a warm welcome to the Kaleidoscope Krew! She is going to be a wonderful addition to the team for sure! That woman is super inspiring! Prepare to be wowed!

Ready to see my creation?

Vivid1

Here’s my boy, lookin’ spiffy in his brights! How many little boys could rock a hot pink shirt and a neon green hat (authentic from the 80’s! It was my sister Pam’s!) like Phoenix can? The hat is much brighter then it is in this photo. Granted, I am not fond of the hat…but that shirt??? Fab-u-lous!

I drew in the silver circles and blue swirls using a stencil. I am totally into stenciling things right now! Then I embellished the page a bit with 3 colors of Stickles. I do love the tab that I left on the KI paper. The name of the paper is called “Wild Thing Stripe.” Perfect! And I love the bar code and the little dots of color to show what other colors are used in this collection of paper. I just thought it was a funky, unexpected touch. And I just needed to use my Martha Stewart punch on the edge of my journaling block. Please click on any of the pics to see them bigger.

I am not entirely sure I’m done with this layout… I think it needs something…I’m not sure what though. Dimensional, I think. Vivid2

I added some buttons, just for kicks. I like them here. I’m not always a button person, but I think they work really well with this page. All in all, I like the page. Nix loves it, of course!

So please go and visit the rest of the Kaleidoscope Krew over at the FHF blog. You will certainly be inspired by what they have created! Make sure you give Danielle a warm welcome! Have a fantastic 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!
