Day 4 of 12 & Traditional Christmas Colors with Dilly Beans

Jolly greetings to you! It's Day 4 of the 12 Days of Creepmas with Smeared & Smudged. It's also Friday, so I have a new Dilly Beans challenge to share. It's Traditional Christmas Colors. I combined both of these topics into one project.

I used #256: Framed Zombie Cupid for this card. I love her. She's so creepy sweet. I used a combination of Spectrum Noirs, Copics, and watercolors to color her in. Wanna see a closer look?

Awww...she wants to wish you a Merry Christmas! I used lots of Champagne Stickles...which is a fab-u-lous gold with iridescent glitter.

I hope you will play along with Dilly Beans this week! And be sure to not only visit the Dilly Beans Challenge Blog, but also visit the rest of the Jolly Bloggers. They are all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a 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!
