Left of Center with Dilly Beans

Hello! Did you know that I am now a part of Left of Center Creative Challenges? I am! And I am stoked about it. This group focuses on dark-themed challenges, which is so up my alley. This challenge theme is Anything Goes, as long as it's dark/creepy/fantasy, etc. And, we are sponsored by Dilly Beans, which is another DT I am on.

I used Dracula's Lollipop for this card. I colored the image with watercolor markers as well as alcohol markers.

Yeesh. I don't know what happened to the color on this photo but he looks reeeeally yellow! Not the case in real life! Anywho, my little teeth in the lower right corner were made with a stamp from Inkadinkado and Shrinky Dinks. I thought they were perfect.

Ahhhh....the color is good here. I kept the card clean and simple. I hope you like it! Please be sure to visit the rest of the "B" Team for LOC HERE. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Quick and Cute with Dreamweaver!

In a flurry of a hurry? This month the Dream Team are all about the Quick and Cute...whether that be cards, gifts, wrapping, or tags...we have sleigh-loads of ideas! Play along by posting your creations using the Inlinkz tool on the Dream It Up! blog, for a chance to win the stencil of your choice, and a possible bonus stencil for using Dreamweaver products in your Quick and Cute project! Here's what fun I've been up to this week:

I used the beautiful Quatrefoil stencil for my background. I inked it up with 2 shades of blue and a red, all from Imagine Crafts. Then, I pulled out my Nested Ornaments die set. Using my background as inspiration for my paper choices, I cut out 2 of the large ornaments and 1 of the small. I used the same paper for the ornament toppers to keep things a little cohesive. 

I pieced the ornaments together and added a simple sentiment to my red ornament. Definitely a quick, simple and cute card! 

I'd love to receive a comment from you before you head on to the rest of the "B" team:

Happy Holidays with Wicked Wednesday

Season's Greetings! Today I have a new Wicked Wednesday challenge to share with you. This week, we are sponsored by A Day for Daisies. I looooove this company, so it's always a joy when I get to work with one of their images. The theme this week is Happy Holidays.

I'm using the super sweet Christmas Light Fairy. I love Christmas lights and fairies of all kinds, so this was the perfect image for me to use. I colored the image with watercolor markers. I gave the fairy a bit of a yellow glow where the bulb is touching her dress....I hope it doesn't come a cross as though the yellow bled.

I added a teeny Noel stamp that I had, and a bit of sparkle. It IS a holiday challenge, right?! Please be sure to visit the Wicked Wednesday blog to check out what the rest of the gals created. Thanks for stopping by, Have an inspiring day!
