Happy Birthday Shannon! From, The Bombshells

Hello! Welcome to Shannon's surprise birthday hop! Shannon is the Queen Bombshells and ownshttp://www.bombshellstamps.com/"> Bombshell Stamps
. Today is her birthday, so some past and present Bombshell Girls and Pin-Ups got together to hold a huge Blog Hop in her honor. I decided to try something a little different, and use very little color.

I used the focal image from Rose's Portrait, the large rose from Love and Luck, and the Happy Birthday Banner inside the card from Banner Sayings.

The bit of red on Rose was done with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink and a Cut-N-Dry nib.

Simple, but pretty. Shannon, I hope you have an amazing birthday! We love ya! Below is the entire Birthday Hop List. Enjoy!!!

***I should have a new DICC project, as well as a Dilly Beans project, but with the 31 Days, I was just overwhelmed. Will try to post those projects soon!

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!
