Wild Flower Wednesday #26

I have someone special for you to meet…her name is Willow. She is one of the latest images that I’ve gotten from The Wild Flower Kids digi collection, and I think she is so sweet!

WFK-Embossed-Challenge-2

Isn’t she??? I love how she’s sitting, perched on a lily pad…her pretty wings, and her lovely face.

Wild Flower Kids is one of the sponsors over at Smeared & Smudged this month! If you play along with our Sketch Challenges, you have the chance of winning 5 digis (of your choice)! How cool is that? Jen Shults, owner and designer behind WFK, was kind enough to give the S&S DT some digis to play with. I already have several (‘cause I love ‘em!), but I just had to have Willow here and Iris…who you will see soon.

The latest WFK challenge came out today, since it is Wednesday, and the challenge was purr-fect for me! Embossing! Emboss anything, in any way. So, I decided to do some dry embossing. I took out my Fiskars plates, and embossed away on some Core’dinations cardstock. Then, I sanded it, so you can see the core color and cut it down with my trusty Coluzzle. So, I guess I should show you the whole card now right?

I also added some pink cardstock, which I inked, to the background. Willow is of course colored in with my pencils, and I added a couple dots of Stickles to her headband. But…I needed a bit more sparkle…

WFK-Embossed-Challenge-3

So, I used the Stickles in the center of my flowers too! These babies are from Prima. Aren’t they sweet?

So come on over to Smeared & Smudged. We’ve got a whole new look going over there, and some wonderful new changes! Plus, like I mentioned, if you play along with the Sketch Challenges, you have a chance at winning some Wild Flower Kids for yourself!

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!
