Ground Me Goddess…

Sometimes you just need something or someone to ground you. Sometimes life just kinda sucks…and you need to be pulled back to earth before you head explodes and your soul floats away. That was my yesterday. I called upon a couple of wonderful ladies to help me…one of which is depicted in the card below.

Ahhh…the Earth Goddess. So grounding. So comforting. So warm. What thoughts and feelings does she evoke for you? Right now I want nothing more than to sit quietly in a forest. That’s all. Just me, a forest, and sitting.

This image of the Earth Goddess is of course from Smeared Ink. I colored her with my watercolor markers. I left her “skin” linear and textured because I wanted it to be bark-like. The color in this pic is a bit wonky, but I wanted you to see it because it really shows the Glimmer Mist (Lily Pad) and the pretty sheen on the leaves in the corner.

Isn’t she pretty? I wanted to thanks all of the ladies that were there for me yesterday. I don’t know how many will be reading this (I know at least 1 will!)…but I am so grateful. Thank you for being there for me. Today would be much harder if it wasn’t for you.

Thanks to 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!
