Rotten Eggs for a Wicked Easter


Early Easter greetings! The Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls and I have a fun challenge for you today, that goes right along with this holiday. "Rotten Eggs for a Wicked Easter." We want you to create a dark Easter project. Fun right? And since this is the 1st Tuesday of the month, you can make anything. It does not have to be an altered item.

I chose to work with Judy, from the Simply B Stamps Sweet Gothic Kids Easter collection. For the rest of this week, SBS will be offering this set in digital form. But after this week, you will only be able to get them in rubber. So if you're a digi freak, get 'em while you can!


I wish I owned Judy's dress! She was a lot of fun to color, especially her hair. I of course had to add a wee bit of a signature color to it, so I went with purple!


I colored Miss Judy with my watercolor markers and Copics. Look at those cool skulls on the bottom of her dress!


I used a mess of different papers, including the foiled pink lips, which is from a DCWV paper. I got the Phoenix Seal of Approval (hey...that would be cool for a watermark!), and he said it was done. So I put paper, ink and Stickles down, and called it a day. I hope you will join my self and the rest of The Dolls for this challenge! You have 2 weeks to play along. 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!
