New DICC and "Lei Day"

Hello! Today I am sharing the latest DICC challenge with you, a day late, but hopefully not a buck short! Our newest Design Team member, Trudie, came up with the latest itinerary.


1. Shaped Card (no squares or rectangles)
2- Die cut shapes
3- Punched shapes
4- Bright colours 
5- Twine
6- Buttons
7- 2 images
8- One word sentiment
9- Tree
10- Clouds

For my card, I used item #'s 4, 7, 8, 9, and 10. This card also works for the latest Raise the Bar challenge, Lei Day.
 

I worked with Bombshell Stamps' Hula Girl for this card. I used a number of elements from this set on the card. I colored the items up with ink, Distress Inks, watercolor markers, and Copics. 


I love this set because of the little scenes that you can create. And let's face it, that Hula Girl is super cool! Or rather, hot. 

I used a mess of foam dots to give the card some dimension. You can see some of the foam peeking out from behind some of the images. I thought that you could really see the dimension from this angle. And speaking of Bombshells, I announced the May Hump Day Hop over on the Bombshell Blog today. Go take a peek! And don't forget to visit the DICC Blog to check out what the rest of the Design Team has cooked up for this latest Itinerary. 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!
