Day 15 of 31- Just Some Lines with DICC

Hey there! It's is the 15th of the month, (Yikes! How can that be already?!) so if you are a regular follower of my blog, you will know that this is one of 2 days in the month that the Desert Islands Crafters Challenge posts our challenges. For these challenges, we give you a 10 item itinerary. To play along, you need to use at least 3 items on the given itinerary on your project. Here's the itinerary for this round...and we are sponsored by Just Some Lines. Here's the itinerary.
1. Witches/Broomsticks
2. Black Cats
3. Cauldrons
4. Use Stripes
5. Sentiment on Front
6. Lots of black
7. Glitter and Sparkle
8. At least 2 ribbons
9. Use Kraft Cardstock/Paper
10. Die Cuts or Punches

I used #'s 1, 2, 4, 5, 9, and 10. Isn't this a cute image? I've gotta say, it's cuter than I typically use, but I like it! 

I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color this image. My sentiment is from Cosmo Cricket.

I kept this pretty clean and simple, and just used some scraps to finish the piece off. Oh, and some fabby Orange Peel Stickles. I love the little flashes of green that this color has. So that's about it for today! Please visit the DICC Blog to see what the rest of the team has come up with. And of course, there's the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a skulla-riffic day! ;)


***Maureen, yes, I use the Cut-N-Dry nibs like a pen. I swirl the ink colors on to the nib and then apply it to the paper. A simple rinse of water cleans them off. Love those little nibs!

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!
