Bombshell Sketch Challenge & Day 8 of 31 Days of Halloween!

Hello my little trick or treaters! Today I bring you a 6x6 card using this month’s Bombshell Stamps sketch! Here’s the sketch.

october

And her is what I created using my brand new Butterfly Queen stamp set!

October-Sketch

Isn’t she fabulous? Now you may be wondering what this has to do with Halloween…she’s dressed up as a butterfly, of course! This is glam Halloween, baby!

October-Sketch-2

The Queen is colored in with my colored pencils, and a bit o’ blue glitter. Her wings were inked with 3 colors and then embossed with clear powder. I added a bit of glitter to those as well, but this time, I used Stardust Stickles. I also embossed the edge of the purple oval with glitter powder.

October-Sketch-3

Did you notice that her wings look crooked here? I did that on purpose…because they move! I attached them with brads underneath her so that you can flap her wings! She is pop dotted, so the brads don’t interfere with her body.

October-Sketch-4

I used the “Bombshell” title from the Angel set…also embossed with a glitter powder. There’s a lot of shine goin’ on here! Check out the sheen on the K & Co. paper I used…it’s got foil on it!

October-Sketch-5

Isn’t it fab paper? It goes perfectly with the way I colored my Queen! You can click on any of my pics to see the images bigger.

Don’t you wish you had a glam Halloween party to go to like her? I do!  I would like to really encourage you to play along this month with the sketch challenge. Why? Because you have TWO chances to win big this time! Not only can you win through Bombshell itself, but also by posting your card in the RSC challenge HERE! How awesome is that??? So please, play along! I can’t wait to see what YOU make! Enjoy the rest of today’s Wicked Blog Posts! 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!
