Howl at the Moon: Bombshell Forum Relaunch Party

Did you miss me? It was weird to take a day off of blogging after posting for 31 Days straight. Truth be told, I should have had a post... There's not only a new Desert Island Crafters Challenge, but also a new Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls challenge. With the computer nonsense I've been dealing with, it's been tougher than I would have anticipated to get things done. When did I become so technically reliant???
But on to the good stuff. Bombshell Stamps is having a Forum Relaunch Party! It's been going on since Halloween. If you haven't been over there lately, please stop by. There are prizes up for grabs, lots of fun chatter happening, and heck...who wouldn't want to hang out with us Bombshells? ;) Mary G. came up with a great challenge that I just had to play along with. It's called Howl at the Moon, and you need to create a project with a moon in it. I broke out one of my newest Bombshell aquisitions, Homeward Bound, for this one.

I stamped the image with Frost White ink from Color Box. Then I went in with white acrylic paint to add the moon, more water, the border, and to transform the sun that's in the bottom right corner. 


This was a great challenge! And I liked making something with a complete lack of color that wasn't Halloween. I do hope you'll drop by the Bombshell Forum to see all the fun things that are going on. 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!
