Day 27 of 31 Days: Flying Bats

Hello! Today I bring you the 4th in my series of "simple" cards. Kraft cardstock, a swoosh of color, and a hand-drawn border.

I love these bats. They are from the same set that the witch image in this simple card series is from. The set is from Inkadinkado, and it is for sure, one of my most favorite Halloween sets that I own.

I swooshed on some purple ink, where I wanted the bats to be, then I stamped the bats on top. I added a few white highlights with a pen, and drew in my little border.

I am happy to have a set of 4. And tomorrow...I will have another set of 4 to show you! I have my 4th tile complete! Remember those fabulous Dilly Beans images that I have been working with? Yay! I am really excited to share that with you. So do come back tomorrow! For now, please visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers. They are all listed in my side bar. 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!
