Wicked Fool

Greetings! It’s time once again for me to share another project featuring the ultra cool (and not for the faint of heart) Smeared Ink stamps! Today I am sharing a card using another image from the Misty Benson Tarot Deck Set 1. Today’s card features The Fool.

I used colored pencils and chalk to color this image in. And what a cool image it is! I love the way Misty Benson draws faces. There’s something so sweet…and a little sinister about this “Fool.”

This picture is a little washed out…but his skin is comprised of several layers of chalk. A few greens and some yellow. He was practically begging me to make him green! And I thought it wwas the perfect shade for him!

The “Wicked” is from Smeared Ink’s Teen Style Sayings, and I thought it was totally appropriate here. The orange swirls are from Queen and Company. They’re felt and adhesive backed. Love them!

Thank you for stopping by! 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!
