Day 7 of the Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Christmas: Gene’s Card

Welcome to the 7th day! I’m really excited about this card, because I made it for my husband. I slipped it to him this morning before he left for work. I hope he likes it!!!

So the other day, you probably saw my latest StampInsanity card featuring Maddie as me. Well, the challenge was to create an All About Me card! This card has me too…but a bit…uh…sassier! And with red hair instead of teal.

Gene's-Card-1

This is Allura Von D from Kenny K. I won her because I was one of the chosen 12 who got to name their new Krash Kittenz! I named Harley Ryder, and she sure is a stunner! Be sure to check out that whole collection!

Anywho…I think that Allura actually does look like me…just with a rockin’ bod! The ponytail with the pieces in the front…the dark eye makeup…the fishnet…she even has a widow’s peak like me!

Gene's-Card-2

As soon as I saw her, I knew I had to have her. And I knew she would be perfect for a card for my husband! So I gave her my other signature hair color and colored her up holiday style.

Gene's-Card-3

The sentiment is from StampInsanity, and it was begging to be used on this card! It’s just purrfect! I added some glossy hearts just for a bit of shine and extra love!

Gene's-Card-4

Here you can see the glitter I added around her eyes by using a Sakura Star Dust pen. My eyes are almost always glittery! And, I just had to give her black lipstick…another favorite makeup item of mine!

I hope you like my creation! Now please go and check out the rest of the Jolly 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!
