Halloween Chevron: Day 24 of 31 Days of Halloween

Greetings! I have some glittery goodness to share with you today! I used one of Dreamweaver Stencils' newest stencils- Chevron Background. I used the Double Glitter technique. Have you seen it before? Feast your eyes on this.......

If you love glitter like I do, then you need to try this technique! HERE is a great video tutorial by Wendy Jordan.

I wish my orange glitter was a little brighter, so that you'd see more of a contrast, but I still think it looks ok. I highly recommend using as fine a glitter as possible when doing this technique, to be sure that you get into all of the teeny places and you get better coverage. My purple glitter is much finer than the orange, and hopefully you can see that it has much nicer coverage.

I kept the rest of the card pretty simple. A sentiment from Recollections (Michaels' own brand), and a cool trim I had, all mounted on to black cardstock. Please be sure to check out the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a spooktacular day!

Spooktacular! I love that the orange glitter is a different grain coz it also gives the finished look a texturized effect too!

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!
