Flowers and Day of the Dead: Day 13 of the 31 Days of Halloween

I enjoyed Saturday's post so much, that I decided to go with another Day of the Dead project. This time, my feature image is from Dilly Beans. And, since I am double posting with Dreamweaver Stencils today, I used their gorgeous Corner Flowers stencil as another focal point.

I colored this beautiful image from Dilly Beans first, with my watercolor markers.

Then, I started to play with my stencil! I used Radiant Neon inks (frm Imagine Crafts), and sponge daubers to apply them.

Then, I embossed the flowers with a clear powder. I love the texture and shine the flowers have now.

I used 2 different ribbons from Maya Road (see the puffy blue trim at the top?), and they finished this card off. My post for Dreamweaver today is verrrry different from this one. I hope you like it! Please be sure to check out the rest of the 31 Days of Halloween Wicked Bloggers. They are all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic 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!
