Funky Potters Preview Day 2: Ginny

Greetings! Welcome to Preview Day 2 of Simply Betty Stamps' latetst release...The Funky Potters! I didn't play along yesterday, but with good reason. I combined yesterday's image with today's in one card! I'm so proud of myself, now that I can merge images together in Photoshop. I'm sure most of you have been doing that for years...but I really have such a hard time with computers. And it's been forever since I took Photoshop in college. And I don't even know what version that was! But enough about me and my computer schtuff...let's get to Hermoine and Ginny!!!

Truth be told, I did not read the Harry Potter books...except for the 1st one. Wait! Don't shoot! It's not because I didn't like them....I was in college (huh...seems to be a running theme today) when they came out, and I really just had to focus on my art. Reading for pleasure at that time was just not in the cards for me. I'll pick them up again some time. I really will! So that's why the colors are probably not what you would expect. But that's what makes these images so great. Yeah, they're perfect for Harry Potter stuff...but you can use them for other things too!

I used watercolor markers to color in my images, and chalk to fill in the background (thanks, Barb!). I stamped out my sentiment with an alphabet from Time Flies. A rip here and there, more chalk and some more use of the marker around the border. And some blobs of glitter. Done! I think it's cute and snarky.

Please be sure to visit the Simply Betty Stamps blog and The Burtonesque Dolls blog to see more inspiration today, and the rest of the week. And remember, Friday is release day, when you can buy these babies for yourself! Please visit me again tomorrow when I will have another Potter preview and a brand new Burtonesque Dolls challenge! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Too cute! Love the bright colors, even if they aren't Potteresque :) You totally need to read these one day, and I promise they get more adult after the first 3. (not adult in that way, hehe)

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!
