Blue Pumpkin: Day 17 of 31

Greetings! Welcome to day 17 of the 31 Days of Halloween! Let me start off by saying, my project today does not have a Blue Pumpkin. But that's the name of the absolutely gorgeous image I used today from Ching Chou Kuik.

I colored the image with my Zig Clean Color Markers, and I added some Desert Sand Memento Ink around the edges, plus some Wheat VersaMagic to tone down the white cardstock as well. Both inks are from Imagine.

I added some green damask cardstock and a little pumpkin that I punched out, plus some silver sequins to add a little shine. And we can't forget about the fabulous glitter cardstock in the lower left corner. Talk about sparkle!

That's it for me today. I think once the Stickles dry on my pumpkin punch, I am going to add some more detail to it. It's looking a little flat to me in these pictures. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers. They are all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fangtastic 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!
