DICC, Dilly Beans, and the Beginnings of a List

Happy March 1st. It is officially my least favorite month of the year. But! It is sunny out, kinda warmish, and I am going to try and have a very positive outlook for the month. Please bear with me if I get cranky though. Since it's the 1st, I have a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge to share with you. And since it's Friday (yay!), I have a new Dilly Beans project. Plus! I have joined the 30 Days of Lists. And though I didn't make my list all sorts 'o fancy yet, I will share it with you. First, DICC. We are proudly sponsored by Rick St. Dennis this time.

This is Lady Felicity. I used #'s 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, and 10. But what's on the itinerary, you ask? You'll just have to visit the DICC blog to find out! 

Rick had asked me to color Lady Felicity with peach. A couple of weeks ago, he assigned his EDT members an image, and we were given a color to work with. I don't use peach too often, but I am happy with how she turned out.

She looks ready for a Spring Soiree, right? Play along with DICC, and you an win some images from Rick St. Dennis!

I find it to be interesting that my two projects have coordinating colors. That was not planned! This week, the challenge at Dilly Beans is to use green. I love me some green. I had such a wonderful time coloring her hair. 

Isn't she so pretty? I adore the Big Eye Girls that Megan had drawn. I used mostly watercolor markers for her, but a few alcohols....like for her skin.

And now for the 30 Days of Lists......Today's Prompt is "I am a lister because...."
1. They're fun
2. They keep me organized
3. They help me think and focus
4. I get satisfaction from crossing things off my lists
5. I am forgetful

So there you have it. I'm off to color. Please visit DICC and Dilly Beans to see some fabulous work by my teamies. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Gorgeous projects! I especially love the green hair.:) I'm sorry that you don't like March. I hope this month will be a good one for you. I'm not crazy about March, even though I was born during it.

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!
