Lorna Loch and Nessie

Greetings! I am sharing a new Simply B Stamps image with you tonight. If you have been following the SBS Blog this week, you would have seen the first couple of the brand new Spunky Spooks collection. Today we are traveling to the mysterious Highlands of Scotland to meet Lorna Loch and her friend Nessie. Yes, you read correctly, Nessie, the Loch Ness monster does exist, and she loves to frolic around the Loch with her friend Lorna.

How great is this duo? I had great fun coloring them. As soon as I saw this image, I knew I wanted to use a lot of green, and that's just what I did!

I used my watercolor markers and my Copics. I actually used more Copics this time around. See that pretty color around the edge of the image? That's Evergreen Bough, a Limited Edition Distress Ink. Such a pretty color!

I used some pretty green rain dots for bubbles, and a few pieces of scrap paper. My mini artist, Phoenix, of course assisted throughout the whole process. This kid needs a blog of his own!
Would you like to see more of Lorna and Nessie? Then scoot on over to the SBS Blog to see what the rest of the DT has created. 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!
