DICC #69- The Stamping Boutique

Happy 2014! It's time for a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge, sponsored this time by The Stamping Boutique. Here is the itinerary. Please remember to use at least 3 items on the list of you want to play along.

1. Glitter
2. Ribbon
3. Die Cut
4. Airbrushing or Spray (perfect Pearls, Glimmer Mist, Dylusions, etc.)
5. Snowflakes
6. Winter Theme with Summer Colors
7. Stencil
8. 3 Layers
9. Pocket
10. Distressing


I used #'s 1, 2, 4, 7, and 10. Now....I'm going to be honest. I hate how this card turned out. I had such high hopes...and my ideas were good. But in the end...this was a bomb. Now, you may say, why would I start the first project of the year with a piece that I don't even like? Because bad pieces can come at any time, and it's ok. You've gotta just accept it and move on. I am going to rip the whole thing apart and start over. It's an adorable image, but my color choices didn't work as I had wanted, and it went downhill from there. I love the stencil I used from Dreamweaver....that's probably the best part of the whole card. The itinerary s great too. But the card... It's just...a mess. And that's ok. Now that I've made this...I know the next bunch will be better. 'Cause most anything has to be better than this right?! ;)

Ok. Moving on........................................
Please be sure to check out the GREAT projects made by my teamies at the DICC blog. And don't worry...I'll have some good stuff this week! Lol Thanks for stopping by!

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!
