Stripes and Chevrons: Day 10 of 31 Days of Halloween

Greetings, my spooktacular fiends friends! Today, there is a new Dilly Beans challenge, which just so happens to work with the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. The theme is Halloween! I made a quickie ATC.

I love this little skellie! I colored him with watercolor markers and fussy cut him.

I had these cute little stars from K & Co. which made embellishing the ATC nice and quick. A little bit of Yellow Stickles and that's it. I hope you'll play along with Dilly Beans. Be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tatsic 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!
