Beach Fun Lola Addams

It's time for another preview of the new Teen Scene Summer Fun collection from Simply B Stamps. This time, it's Lola Addams. She is always one of my favorite characters in the Teen Scene lineup to work with.

She doesn't look real happy to be out in the sun. In fact, check out what she said..." See you at dusk." Guess she's going into hiding so that her lovely ghost-like complexion doesn't get a bit of color from the sun! That little sentiment is from Smeared Ink and their Creepy lil Grumpies set. I will be entering this card in their Smudgy Antics "Anything Goes" challenge.

I colored Lola with my watercolor markers and my Copics. I really like the look of annoyance on her face! I make that face all the time. Hahaha!

I broke out my ole spiderweb punch from Martha Stewart, because Lola was practically begging for some webs. And I found a skully button in my stash that I also thought worked rather well here. Now it's time for you to visit the SBS Blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has done with this unhappy cutie. 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!
