S&S plus SBS 12 Days of Christmas Day 5: Christmas Mouse

I have a new Simply B card to share with you today. But, I can’t share the challenge with you, since it doesn’t go “Live” until the 10th. You’ll just have to check the SBS Blog to find out why I made it! But I will tell you this…it has something to do with this sweet little mouse….

I used Seasons Greetings Lola from the Teen Scene Christmas collection. See the little mouse in her hands. I really like this image. You may have seen me use it once before…HERE. This version is very Christmas-y, whereas the last one was not.

I used my watercolor markers for the image, and I inked the whole thing up with Antique Linen Distress Ink when I was done, to tone down the white.

I like scattering rhinestones around a card, as opposed to always lining them up somewhere. I do that, but the scattered look is more appealing to me.

Please be sure to visit the rest of the Smeared & Smudged Jolly Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Also, be sure to visit the SBS Blog on the 10th to read up on the challenge! 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!
