Dilly Beans Challenge: Fall

Greetings! Fall is officially here, and that is the theme of the challenge this week at Dilly Beans. You may be saying, "But that was what you said last week!" Yeah, it was. There was a teeny mix up in what the challenge was last week, so this week, we are just going with Fall again. Which is good for me, because I love the Fall.


I used Anna framed for this card. I did her hair a little different from how other folks have colored her...I added a bit more hair to her, by coloring in some of the negative space. I also gave her a bit of an ombre look to her hair color...which is so popular with people right now. I'm please with it. Here's a closer look.


Isn't Anna so pretty? I used watercolor markers and Copics to color her in. This is another one of Dilly Beans' "Big Eye Girls" that I love so much.


I took 3 clear rhinestones and hand colored them with an orange Copic. My "Fall" stamp is from Hero Arts, and I inked it up with Distress Inks. I hope you like my newest Fall card. Now it's time for you to head over to the Dilly Beans Blog to see what the rest of the DT has come up with. 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!
