DICC #27: Jingle’s Itinerary

Greetings! It’s time for another Desert Islands Crafters Challenge! I’m gonna warn you, this is a toughie! I, myself struggled quite a bit with this one. So I decided to enlist Phoenix to help me out. Truthfully, I’m not loving the end result. I may need a re-do. Phoenix likes it, but I think we’ve had better collaborative cards just this week alone. So bare with me, this is a learning experience for all of us.

Jingle’s Itinerary:

1. Squirrel

2. Raccoon

3. Monkey

4. Moustache

5. Gnome

6. Orange

7. Grass

8. Paper Piecing

9. Colored Pencil Coloring

10. Rainbow (interpret as you will)

I used #’s 3, 6, 7, 10. I don’t own a lot of things listed in this itinerary. But I really liked this monkey, and the idea of incorporating a rainbow….but I didn’t know how to do it. So Phoenix and I decided it would be cool to stamp my sentiment as a rainbow, and have the monkey purple.

By the way, I used the latest Scrappy Chick Sketch for this card. I changed it slightly, but I think Ms. Cyndi will be ok with my alterations! :)

I inked in some grass under the monkey, and I used some orange trim to make that color stand out a bit more. Phoenix has a couple of birthday parties coming up, so I’ll probably let him use this card for one of his friends. Please play along with this challenge, I want to see how much better you all can make this itinerary! ‘Cause I am seriously lacking inspiration on this one! :) So visit the rest of the DICC gals to see what they’ve concocted…Thanks for stopping by!

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!
