Trick or Treat Bag: Day 15 of 31 Days

Hello! It's Wednesday, so I have a new Wicked Wednesday ATC challenge to share with you. The theme this week is Halloween, perfect for the 15th day of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. We are sponsored by QKR Stampede.

I used the Trick or Treat Bag, and I colored it with watercolor markers. I then embossed the "sweet" candy corns with an embossing folder on Core'dinations cardstock and sanded it down a bit to highlight the candy.

Super quick! I needed a quickie today...I thought for sure that this year, since both of my kidlings are in school full time, that I would have plenty of time to myself, but boy was I wrong. Anywho, be sure to stop by the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a spooktacular day!

I do love that candy corn background. The sandable Core'dinations are a great product.

Wonderful coloring.
I was hearing on the tv news this morning that adult coloring has therapeutic benefits.

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!
