DICC: Sweet Pea Stamps & Bombshell Muse Monday: Harley Bikes

Happy April 1st! I have 2 projects for you today. The first is for the new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge, which is sponsored by Sweet Pea Stamps. The second is for the new Bombshell Stamps Muse Monday. For the month of April, we will be featuring the Harley Bikes set. Here's the itinerary for DICC.

1 - Make it colourful (lots of colours)
2 - Sing - a - long (based on a song)
3 - Stickles
4 - Buttons
5 - Something home made (flower etc)
6 - Shiny
7 - 2 dies or more
8 - Birthday
9 - Candles
10 - Sentiment


I used numbers 1, 3, 4, 9, and 10. Of course, my focal image is from Sweet Pea Stamps. The name of it is Exotic Halloween, and I LOVE this image. I colored it with colored pencils. My sentiment is from Inkadinkado.

She's so cool. I have missed using my pencils. But she really needed to be colored with them instead of markers. 

And this is what  made for Muse Monday over at Bombshell Stamps

I decided to go for a super streaky thing with my markers. I used one of the bikes from the set and a sentiment. I also used the blank banner from Banner Sayings
For my background, I used my brand new, awesome Houndstooth stencil from Dreamweavers Stencils. I used their Memories Mist in "Diet Cola."
So. Come and play along with DICC. You need to use at least 3 of the items on the itinerary in order to play along. And, be sure to visit the Bombshell Blog to check out all the cool stuff we post each Monday with the Harley Bikes set. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring 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!
