July 1st DICC and Bombshell Stamps Muse Monday

Happy July! I have 2 projects to share with you today. The first is for the latest Desert Islands Crafters Challenge, and the second is for Week 1 of Bombshell Stamps' Muse Monday. Here's the itinerary for DICC, who is sponsored by Saturated Canary this time around.

1. Let's Go Outside
2. Flowers
3. Step Into It (make a step card)
4. Rainbows
5. Clouds
6. Ribbon or Twine
7. Paper Piecing
8. Emboss It
9. Dies & Punches
10. Metal Embellishment


I used Starla from Saturated Canary, and numbers 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, and 9 from the itinerary. I LOVE Starla.

I colored her almost entirely with Spectrum Noir markers. I had to use green Copics for her top. 

My sweet little sentiment is from Inkadinkado. I thought it was pretty perfect for this mini page I made. It's 6x6 in size. Now. On to Bombshell!!!!

This month, the featured set for Muse Monday is Tiki Party. Did you know that each month, you can get the featured Muse Monday set on sale?! What a great way to stock up!

So I made a necklace using a wooden tag, the Tiki Gods, and 3 Spectrum Noir markers. Then I went through my huge stash of beads and found a lot of natural beads (wood, dried seed pods, shells) and mixed them with some glass and acrylic beads.

I of course had to use both Tiki Gods on my pendant, so I stamped one on each side. The images bled slightly, but the image is still really clear, as you can see, and totally wearable. 

I highly recommend that you go and visit the DICC Blog as well as the Bombshell Blog, to see what other goodies have been created for your viewing pleasure. 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!
