Happy Birthday, Gene!

It’s my wonderful husband’s Birthday today! Lately, I have been using various Kenny K images for all of the cards I make for him, and this time was no different. This week, the challenge at the Kenny K Blog is Springtime. And while I didn’t use any flowers on my card…one of my favorite things to do in the spring is to go for a motorcycle ride. Here’s the card.



This is Harley Ryder…the Krash Kitten that I named! :) She’s almost ready for a ride…She just needs a helmet! Ok…maybe a few more layers of clothes too…but she’s still a hot biker chick! I colored her hair in a style similar to my own, and made her clothes in colors that I would wear. Gene likes when I do that!



The color is a little off in this photo for some reason…the top one is much more accurate. She is all colored with my watercolor markers. I used some flat backed pearls adhered with Platinum Liquid Pearls. The senti is from Technique Tuesday.


Thanks 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!
