Smeared & Smudged Delicious Doodles Blog Hop!

It’s a hoppy kind of day with the Smeared & Smudged DT! One of our fabulous sponsors for the month of January is Delicious Doodles. And today, the Design Team, along with Teri, the owner of DD, are doing a blog hop the Smeared & Smudged way! I just have to say, I am SO in love with my image. I chose to work with Green Man, who holds a very special place in my heart. Here is my offering.

Isn’t he majestic? I had a wonderful time coloring him in…using several shades of green plus copper and some goldenrod. Colored pencils, of course!

You can click on any of the images to see them bigger. Check out that copper paper… It’s metallic and looks like taffeta! The next picture shows it a little better.

Isn’t it pretty? I thought it really worked with the copper (metallic) acorns on Green Man. How would you like to win some digis from Delicious Doodles? All you have to do is enter either the Sketch Challenges and/or the Photo Inspiration Challenge at Smeared & Smudged!

Now please hop along to the rest of the seriously talented ladies of the Design Team. I am quite sure that you will be inspired! Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!

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!
