Day 25 of 31 Days Plus a Bombshell New Release!

This is a really exciting day! Not only do I have a fun 31 Days project, but I am also previewing (along with my fellow DT members) new Bombshell Stamps!!! And since I am so excited about these new sets, I am going to start there.
The name of the 2 new sets are Indian Warrior and Indian Princess. These are available in digi form now, but will soon be available in fabulous red rubber!I will be sharing a card using the Indian Princess set.

Isn't she exquisite? I colored her entirely with my Multicultural Pencil set from Crayola. Yes, Crayola. For those of you that frequent my blog, you know how much I adore this set. And I thought it was quite complimentary to this new set. 

I am looking forward to coloring her all different ways. I popped her off of the ovals to really show her off, though I don't think it's too obvious in my photos.

I sprayed the background with some sprays from Tsukineko. Make sure you check out the rest of this set and the Indian Warrior set too! Let's move on to the 31 Days of Halloween!

The latest Wicked Wednesday challenge is "Full Moon." How could I not play along with that??? I have been wanting to use my little House Mouse dressed as a ghost all month...and when I saw this challenge, I knew this fella was perfect for it!

My boo-tiful moon is from a set I had gotten many "moons" ago at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I colored the mouse with colored pencils, and the background (of the mouse) and moon with watercolors. Yeah, all that is Crayola too. I am sensing a theme here.... Yes, I have higher-end art supplies, but Crayola makes me happy! The birch trees, which I am sure you recognize from my Pumpkin Witch card, was done with chalk. Not from Crayola. ;)
So there you have it! 2 more projects and 1 day closer (sniff!) to Halloween. Please be sure to visit the Bombshell Blog to see more with the 2 new, fabulous sets. And also, please visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers. They are all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!

Wow, Indian Princess is lovely and those Crayola pencils are great - have never seen them before! Your Halloween project is super cool too! What an amazing moon stamp! Beautiful!

I love both your creations! The princess is just lovely! And the little ghost mouse running from the full moon is just adorable. I love Crayola too - you should use whatever you love to create with! It looks fabulous. I know sometimes the less expensive supplies do just as well or better than the super pricey ones – I use whatever I think will work for me!

Your Indian Princess is just stunning. I love everything about her. Isn't it nice to have some new Bombshells to play with?

I also like your House Mouse card. You know I loves the mice but the spooky moon you used with this image is a great detail and I love the gray dp mat.

Great job with the Indian Princess. She's gorgeous and colored perfectly. So funny. I have cheap-o colored pencils that I prefer to my more expensive ones.

The second card is sooooo cute. I love that House Mouse Ghost. So cute and fun!

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!
