Day 9 of 31 Days: Chloe Bell

Hello, and welcome to day 9 of the Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween! I am sharing a Dilly Beans card with you today. I made it a couple of weeks ago, and I can't bear to let it sit unseen anymore!

This is Chloe Belle. Chloe Belle Framed (#454) to be exact. Isn't she adorable? In a creepy kind of way. I think the next time I color her, her skin will be more sallow. This time around, I used watercolor markers and Copics. I loved coloring her because she was fast! I got it done in no time. Don't get me wrong, I love coloring detailed images, but sometimes, you just need to get something done now. And she was perfect for that.

The look on Chloe Belle's face reminds me very much of my daughter. Hmmm...maybe I'll color the image to look more like her next time!

I sprayed my background with a couple colors of Glimmer Mist, and a web Glimmer Screen. A few pieces of accent paper, that fabulous bow, and this baby was done. This version is uber Halloweenie, but done in a different color scheme, she could be used for pretty much anything!
Now hop along! The entire list of Wicked Bloggers is posted on my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have an fang-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!
