C is for Cupcake and Creepy: Day 12 of 31 Days

Welcome to Day 12 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween! Today, I have a cupcake to share with you. It's sweet....trust me....Mwahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!

I started off with the Spider Cupcake from A Day for Daisies. I colored it up with my watercolor markers.

Awwww.....he's actually kinda cute! So I remembered, as I was trying to figure out how to complete the card, that I had a great stamp set from Bam POP! That has a cupcake, and the sentiment, "C is for cupcake." I thought it was almost perfect...but not quite Halloweenie enough. Then I remembered the "creepy" stamp that I used the other day. Ahhhhh! Grabbed my "&" symbol, and now the sentiment was perfect!

I just had to use that fab chevron paper again. I'm entering this card in the current A Day for Daisies challenge, which is "All Sugared Up". This was a quick ad easy card. Tomorrow's is a bit more elaborate. Be sure to check in! And also be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!

S is for sweet creepy cool cupcake *U* Love the colors.
I don't usually think of A Day for Daisies as being creepy--but this is fantastic! Perfect use of the senti and the "creepy" addition.

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!
