Burtonesque Dolls: Seeing Double & Jude and the Rockers Preview: Brittany

There is a new challenge over at The Burtonesque Dolls today plus, it’s Day 3 of the Jude and the Rockers by Simply Betty Stamps. Let’s start with The Dolls!

Tweedle Dee Tweedle Dum. I’m seeing doubles! Make a project using twins! As I mentioned last week, we were throwing a Very Merry Un-Birthday Tea Party for my kidlings. It was on Saturday. Rhiannon just so happened to get a beautiful (Disney) Belle dress, and matching Bell doll! She was (is) so excited! I just knew I had to use that for today’s project. My little girl and her twin…

I can’t even tell you how much she loves this doll and her dress. Doesn’t she look adorable?

You can click on any of my photos to see them bigger, My journaling basically says when she got her dress and her “twin,” and how excited she is about it.

The kidlings helped me with this page too. Which is always fun, of course! :)

On to today’s preview. Say hello to Brittany!

Isn’t she cute? Her hair is so spunky, and I love her outfit. She’s got a wee bit of sass…but she’s mostly sweet, which is why I used the “sweet” sentiment in the upper left corner.

I used lots of dots of turquoise Stickles, since my card was so simple. It needed some glitz to make it a wee bit more exciting.

This card’s colors really didn’t photograph well for some reason. The background color is a true yellow, but it’s looking a little greenish in these pictures. But it’s mostly about Brittany, right? And she’s cute no matter what the lighting is like!

Remember, that all of The Rockers will be available starting this Friday, and you have 2 glorious weeks to play along with The Burtonesque Dolls. Please be sure to visit the Simply Betty blog and the Dolls’ blog for even more wonderful creations Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to come back tomorrow! Not only is it the Bombshell Hump Day Hop, but I will have another layout featuring the next “Rocker!” 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!
