Bewitching Pumpkins: Day 23 of 31 Days of Halloween

Today I bring you a sweet card. Really sweet. One of those things that will probably make you say “Awwwww!” I can hear it already…

Bewitching-Pumpkins-1

So yeah. I don’t  normally do sweet…but who could resist these adorable mice? When I owned my scrapbooking & stamp store, I ordered so many of these mice stamps from Stampabilities. I just love the whole series of them. This, of course, is one of my absolute favorites though!

Bewitching-Pumpkins-2

I have to to my own horn for a minute and say that I really LOVE how this card turned out. The coloring is exactly what I wanted, and I think I was able to blend my colored pencils really well to get a nice smooth finish with a lot of depth. You can click on either of the photos to see it bigger.

I didn’t do anything else to the orange card but ink the edges with a purple chalk ink. This image speaks for itself! I hope you like it…even though it’s not macabre or creepy…it is perfect for Halloweenie!  Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, posted on my sidebar. 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!
