Lord of the Rings vs Harry Potter

Greetings! It's the 10th, so it's time for a brand new Movie Magic Monthly challenge. This month, the challenge is Lord of the Rings vs. Harry Potter. You can make anything you want as long as it has something to do with at least one of the movies in these 2 series. I decided to make something for LOTR...as that's more my type of magic. Not dissing HP...but I am for sure a LOTR girl.

I decided to go with an iconic moment. When Gandalf has a standoff on a bridge and shouts "You shall not pass!!!!!!!" Loved that scene. So, I made a door hanger using a brand spankin' new Rick St. Dennis image. Isn't he amazing? Here's a closer look.

Click on any of my images to see it bigger. I really think Rick did an amazing job at capturing the emotion and severity of the moment. You can purchase this fantastic image for yourself HERE

I painted a piece of cardboard with acrylic paints, and used assorted textured cardboard scraps to add details. I also used a sharpie to add dimension to the painted letters, and a Celtic knot Dreamweaver Stencil- you can see it in the lower right corner of this photo. They are a bit more visible in the top picture.

So...will you be playing along with us? Which do you prefer? Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter? Remember, you can make anything you want. No stamps required! Want to see more? Then you must visit the Movie Magic Monthly Blog....you will be floored at what the other gals created! I am so proud to be a part of such a creative team. 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!
