Day 1 of the 31 Days of Halloween

So it begins! Happy October!!! I am so excited for this month...I just hope I can get all of my projects done on time! If you're new to the 31 Days of Halloween, this is a month long blog hop with lots of amazing crafters, sharing some of the coolest Halloween stuff you'll find out in Bloggy Land. I'm kicking off the month with a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge. We are sponsored by Sweet Escapes.
 And this is the itinerary for the challenge. As always, you need to use at least 3 items.
I used #'s 1, 6, 7, and 8 to make a 6x6" Mini Page. It was tough to turn this pretty image into something creepy....but I do like a challenge. I turned her into a sort of evil Fall fairy.

I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. I used the Falling Leaves stencil from Dreamweaver with Copper Creative Medium from Imagine on the bottom. I also stamped the stars from Hero Arts' Dreams are Made set.

For the paint, I used Deco Art Media's Fluid Acrylics in Gold Interference. I love the shimmer it gave my background paper. I also used a brand new sentiment stamp from Stampendous, called Shadows. I used their Mushroom embossing powder for it. It's a great taupe-y color.

Please be sure to visit the Desert Islands Crafters Challenge Blog to see more using our newest itinerary, as well as the Wicked Bloggers that are all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic 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!
