A Batman Reference in Day 3 of 31 Days!

Batman was a great movie. Loved it. The Joker was a sick character. Jack Nicholson rocked that it.  Haven’t seen it in years, but one line always stuck with me… “Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight?” Said by none other than The Joker, of course! That line inspired this card.


I just got As Death from Smeared Ink. And it is an awesome set! I know I will be using it a lot! But as soon as I took a good look at this image, that line from Batman came into my mind. I thought it was perfect for it!

If you look closely (you can click on any of my pics to see them bigger!), you’ll notice I also used an image from Holy City (also Smeared Ink!) in the background. I used the same image 2x to make the border.


I colored everything in with chalk to get a soft effect. And a little tattered ribbon attached with staples just for a bit of embellishment.

I didn’t go too crazy with this one… I wanted it to be simple. I hand wrote the sentiment, and lightly inked the edge of the card in Chestnut Roan from Color Box. I thought the image with the senti made enough of a statement!

What do you think? Is it enough???


I hafta say, it’s only Day 3, but I am SO loving this 31 Days of Halloween! All the projects so far have been amazing! Everyone playing is fantastic! And thank you for all the comments. It’s so great to get feedback! 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!
