Day 30 of 31: 3x3 with A Day for Daisies

It's almost over! I can't believe we will be done with the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween tomorrow. It's been a ton of fun, and I hope you have enjoyed it too. Today, the A Day for Daisies team decided to all make teeny 3x3 cards with the adorable little Green Eyed Monsters. Here's mine.

I used Monster Joe for my little card. I colored him with my Tombow markers using the Indirect Blending Technique. You've seen me use this technique quite a lot this month, and it is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. If you click HERE, you can see a PDF about different techniques on using the Tombow markers, including the Indirect Blending technique. I added some googly eyes for dimension and added silliness.

My sentient is from Tiddly Inks, and was heat embossed. I added a silver spiderweb in the corner, and a small patterned scrap. I have to say, it's hard for me to make such a small card. This was definitely a challenge for me. But a fun one! Please be sure to visit the A Day for Daisies Blog to see what everyone else came up with. Plus, don't forget about the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a spooktacular 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!
