Zen Morgan : StampInsansity Release SISC#44

It’s release day with StampInsanity!!! And, we have a new challenge for you as well. First, how about a peek at the new Zen Morgan digi set?

Zen Morgan 2011

 

Isn’t it fabu? Just in time for Valentine’s Day! Although, don’t limit yourself! Chocolate is good any time of the year…well, any day really…24/7 if you ask me! ;)

For this week’s challenge, you are to create a peaceful project. “Find Your Zen.” Soothe those frayed nerves! Just what I need right now… a little bit of peace…here is my offering.

I colored Zen Morgan in with my colored pencils, and used chalk on the “Namaste.” I chose the spiral paper for my background, because I thought, with the spirals going down, it looked kind of soothing. Like the crazy of the swirls (ie: Life) is just kind of falling away.

Don’t you just love how she’s munching away on chocolate? So cute!

  

And I love the felt flower I had in my stash. And the heart clip I also had laying around. I love using goodies that I’ve had for a long time.

Please be sure to visit all of the Groovy Gurlz…Ward 1 and Ward 2 are playing along this week! All the blog addys are posted on my sidebar.

On a different note, I am thrilled to announce that I have been asked by Mrs. Weyremaster to join her brand new blog challenge group called Desert Islands Crafters Challenge! The fun will begin on February 1st, so I hope you will all visit us to check out the scoop! I promise you, it’s going to be a blast! But for now…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!
