March Bombshell Hump Day Hop: Washi Away & WW: Flower Fairies

Hello! It's time for the March Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop! This month's theme is "Washi Away." Washi  tape is extremely popular with paper crafters right now, so I thought it would be fun to have a challenge where everyone uses it. Also, since it's Wednesday, I have the latest Wicked Wednesday challenge to share as well. That theme is Flower Fairies, and we are sponsored by A & T Digital Designs. Let's start with the hop.

Ahoy Sailor! That's the set I used to create my card. Obviously, the Bombshell and Lifesaver image are part of the set, but so is the teeny star you see in between them.

I colored the images with alcohol markers, and used an embossing folder for my background. Then there's the fab chevron print washi tape! Yum! Love that stuff! Now...my daughter wanted to get in on the act. She loves washi tape too. So she chose some Bombshells to play with too. Take a peek at her teeny creations!

She used the Bombshell Patterns. What bites is that somehow, the 3rd little square has disappeared! She made 3, and now Mommy could only find 2. :( And I looked all over. And I feel terrible. But look at what a great job she did! I am so proud of her. I love crafting with my kids.


I used Ally from A & T Digital Designs. What a sweet image! I was so excited to color it. I used pencils, markers, and watercolors for my image. And look! More washi tape!

I hope you can see the Stickles I used on her wings. I love sparkly wings, don't you? If I had wings, they would sparkle for sure! I also like the look of a light colored ink on top of darker cardstock. Usually works best with a chalk ink, though that's not what I did here. But I love the effect. Be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Wednesday gals, and all of our Bombshell hoppers! The full list is below. 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!
