New Beginnings with Rick St. Dennis & Snowmen with Dilly Beans

Hello bloggy friends! I am very excited for today's post. Not only do I have a new Dilly Beans challenge to share with you, but today is also my first official post with the Rick St. Dennis Team Glitter! But let's start with Dilly Beans. This week's challenge is Snowmen. Something my kids really wish we could build...but we have no snow! I'm ok with that...but the kids are sad.

This is digi #490: Candy Cane Snowman framed. I love all of the framed images from Dilly Beans. They all have such charm with the way that Megan (owner/designer) offsets the images.

I colored the snowman with Spectrum Noir and Copic markers. I hope you can see the gradation of color in the background...it looks kind of like a sunset.

I hope you will play along! Head on over to the Dilly Beans Challenge blog to do so, and to see what the rest of the DT has created! Now it's time for my Rick St. Dennis project.

This is Euro Girl Hazel, and I think she is adorable. The theme for this challenge is "New Beginnings." Not only is the image new for me, but being a part of this EDT is also new for me, so I've got a two-fer! 

 I colored Hazel with my alcohol markers as well. Sadly, a few of my favorite watercolor markers are beginning to dry out, so I have to rely a bit more on the alcohol based ones. I added 2 thin rows of Ice Stickles, for just a touch of sparkle. My sentiment is from Create with TLC.

I hope you will play along with this challenge as well! Please visit the Rick St. Dennis EDT blog for more info, and to see what my fellow team mates have created. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Congratulations on your new design team. You so deserve it.

Both cards are so different in the coloring style but both are really spiffy.

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!
