Bombshell Muse Monday and Raise the Bar

Greetings! It's Monday, which makes me sad...as I really wish my boys were home with Rhiannon and I. But, girl time is always a good thing too! Today I have 2 projects to share with you. The first is Bombshell Stamps' Muse Monday project. The second is for Raise the Bar, which Rick St. Dennis is sponsoring. As a new member of his EDT, I really wanted to play along.
So let's start with Muse Monday. Each month, I choose a Bombshell Stamps set that I want the Design Team to feature. Each Monday, different DT members share a project making that set. It's really cool to see so many different ways to use one set! This month, I chose King of the Road.

I asked Gene what colors I should use for this hot rod. What do you think of his choices? I liked them.

I used watercolor markers to color in the images, and I watercolor painted the background. Remember, each Monday the Bombshell Gals will be showing different projects with this cool set.
As I mentioned above, Rick St. Dennis is sponsoring the latest Raise the Bar challenge. So, I wanted to join in. I used Winter Bonnet for my card.

When I first saw this image, I immediately thought of my Mother in Law. She looked very much like this woman, and I could see her wearing this regal hat if she had somewhere fantastic to go to.

She loved these colors. I colored the image with watercolor markers and alcohol markers. What's really cool, is that my husband said she looks like her. That made me really happy.

The banner is from Bombshell. I hope you will play along with Raise the Bar. You have the chance at winning digis from Rick! Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Beatiful coloring on both cards. I love the crown with the hot rod and the rose backdrop on the second card.

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!
