Day 4 of 31 Days of Halloween: Smile You Trickster

Welcome to Day 4 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween! I'm doing a cheery Halloween card...which is really not my forte. But I think this card is...gosh, am I going to say it??? Cah-ute! Woah! That was tough. Check it out...


This is one of the newest images from Dilly Beans. I thought it was cool...and that other "C" word too. But shhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!! Don't tell anyone I said that! It might ruin my reputation!


I used watercolor markers and Copics for this. My daughter recommended I do the lollipop in a rainbow of colors.  I really loved this image. It's quirky and fabulous.


My punches are from EK Success and Martha Stewart. My sentiment is from Inkadinkado, and has been embossed with a super cool Plum Pearls embossing powder. Check out the shine...


I thought the chevron patterned paper was a lot of fun, and made this an even more playful card. It's fun to push your self out of your typical style, isn't it? I had a lot of fun making this card. I was going to post it later in the month, but I kinda got too excited about it.
Now, off you go! Get on hopping! Please check out all of the Wicked Bloggers, who are all listed on my side bar. Thank  you so much for stopping by. Have an creep-tastic 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!
