Water Goddess and an Amazing Announcement!

So let’s start with the announcement, shall we??? I’m a Bombshell!!! No, not just in my husband’s eyes… I’m no longer Ms. July! I’m a full Design Team Member for Bombshell Stamps!!!!! I cannot even begin to tell you how thrilled and honored I am to be a part of such a magnificent team! I was really hoping that, in honor of my new status, I would be able to show off a new layout featuring one of the fabulous stamps, but, alas, my printer is acting wonky and I cannot print my photos properly. So, it’ll have to wait. But in the meantime, I have a card I made for one of the other fabulous Design Teams that I’m on…Smeared & Smudged!

Water-Goddess-1This is obviously the Water Goddess from Smeared Ink, and I just love her. She’s so serene and lovely. Her face is so peaceful. More like a lazy river than a choppy ocean. I was inspired by this month’s S&S Sketch challenge. Here’s the sketch:

It’s a loose translation, but I think it works for the challenge!

Water-Goddess-2

I painted in my Goddess using Twinkle H20’s. And she is just soooo shimmery! I love the effect! It really looks like faceted water on a sunny day in the Mediterranean.

Water-Goddess-3If you click on any of the pictures, you’ll get to see them bigger. Look at that shine! I just love painting with those Twinkles. I really need to invest in some more colors!

Water-Goddess-4I added some smudges of Waterfall Stickles to the bottom of the card, just for a little more oomph. But, I didn’t want to do too much, as it would take away for this lovely Goddess.

So, why not play along with this sketch challenge? You have all month long to play, and there is a fantastic Graphic 45 prize up for grabs!!! So come on over to Smeared & Smudged and learn more!

Congrats to you. On a side note, on my blog you asked how I keep track of all the challenges I enter...well, I have a word document with all the challenge blogs that I have frequented, listed by day, and then type in what the current challenge is. It doesn't take too long to update and it keeps me on track.

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!
