Dilly Beans Challenge: Fall

My favorite season is certainly Fall. The colors, the smells, the anticipation of the upcoming holidays. Spring is beautiful, and I love the heat of summer (not really a fan of winter)...but the fall is full of magic. So I was very happy when I found out the the new Dilly Beans challenge for this week was simply "Fall." What a wonderful challenge, right? Here's what I made, using "Emily Framed."


I am so in love with Megan's framed images. This is one of many that are in one. And I find that taking these images and making a card with them is such a simple and quick process, because of that frame.


Isn't Emily pretty? I loved coloring her eye, and her beautiful hair, of course! She was colored with watercolor markers and Copics. Incidentally, my deep orange watercolor marker is rather juicy...and I cut the image out before it dried. Well, some orange got on my finger and I touched some of my tri-colored background! There was no way to hide/fix it...so I went with it. Smudging my orange fingerprint here and there to make it look as though it was done on purpose. But you won't share my dirty little secret, will you? ;)


What do you think of my leaves? Aren't they cool? I love anything that's holographic...since I was a kid. So when I found these in my stash, I was very excited. It was hard not to use the whole package, but I thought simplicity was key for this card. My sentiment is from Technique Tuesday.
So won't you play along with the Dilly Beans gals? We would love to see what you come up with for this Fall challenge! Head over to the Challenge Blog for all the details, and to see what the rest of the DT created. And then, visit the shop to snag some of the beautiful framed images from Dilly Beans. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Alison, this is just gorgeous. Your coloring is so pretty and I agree with you, those framed images make it so easy to put together a quick and beautiful card! :)
That image is too cute with her peeking through her bangs and the way you placed it at the bottom of the card. Brilliant

BTW I love holographic too

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!
