Funky Potters Preview Day 4: Pansy

Day 4! It's preview Day 4 of Simply Betty Stamps' latest collection, The Funky Potters. Today The Burtonesque Dolls, Simply Betty gals, and I are introducing you to Pansy. Admitedly, I have no idea who she is, but I think this image is super cute!



She's got a caldron filled with books! That is so very Alison! I even dressed her in very Alison colors (by way of my watercolor markers)... teal, hot pink, and purple. Check out her cute little frog!



My sentiment is from StampInsanity. I love this one. It says: "Books can be dangerous. The best ones should be labeled 'this could change your life." -Helen Exley. I used chalk and ink to color the sentiment in.



How much are you loving this preveiw? Does it make you wanna go and read all of those books again? Well, starting on Friday, you can but these fab images for yourself, and then make bookmarks to go into your beloved Harry Potter books!!! Be sure to stop back here, and at The Burtonesque Dolls, and Simply Betty Stamps blog to see more rad creations! 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!
