Card Positioning System’s Sketch #256 with Bombshell Stamps!

Good Sunday morning to you! Today, I am very happy to share a card I made for Card Positioning System’s Sketch #256. This sketch is being sponsored by Bombshell Stamps, so some of the DT gals were asked to play along. Here’s my card.

And here is the original sketch.

I changed it around a wee bit…but that’s the fun part of doing a sketch challenge, right? Taking the original and giving it your own twist?

For this card, I used Homeward Bound and Mermaid Treasure from Bombshell Stamps, of course. I colored the images using both my watercolor markers and my Copics. If you can click on this, or any of my other photos, you will see the image bigger.

I used foam dots to pop up the mermaid and the “Homeward Bound” banner. I also used my beloved Mini Punchinella stencil from the Crafter’s Workshop for the circles in the background.

I also added a layer of Glossy Accents to my mermaid’s tail, to make it look wet. I had a lot of fun with this sketch, even though it was a bit of a struggle for me at first. I am thrilled with the end result though. Some of the other Bombshell Gals played along with this sketch as well. Here are the links to their blogs.
Stop by and give them some love! Also, be sure to check out the deets on the CPS Sketch HERE. And of course, here is the link to the Bombshell Blog. Its always great for you to visit us there! 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!
