Bernadette: A Makeover

Greetings! This past weekend, Rick St. Dennis had some fun on his Facebook page, and had his followers answer assorted questions to win some digis. I was a lucky duck that day and won twice! So I couldn't wait to share one of the images I had won with you. One of the images i won was Bernadette. She looks like a very sweet lady...but I just couldn't leave her that way...I turned her into a creepy Queen of Hearts.

I did her all in greys and black, with a bit of red. I was hoping that I could get this card into this week's Smudgy Antics Challenge, but I didn't want to add flowers to the card. And as their challenge goes for this week, that's what I would have needed to do.

But back to the image...I colored her entirely with Copics, which is unusual for me. I thought about giving her dark circles under eyes, but I didn't want to make her ugly...just creepy. I did however give her eyeliner, and I extended her eyelashes a bit.

In truth, she looks a bit more psychotic in real life then she does in my photos, but I do think that she still looks a bit off. Hahaha! I am looking forward to coloring up some of my other new images from Rick St. Dennis. Hopefully I will get to share them with you soon. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!

Congratulations on you win. You certainly put your prize to good use. That color scheme is perfect for this image.

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!
