TTIC #34- Project Portion




Well whatdaya know? TWO posts in one day!!! I had to get this done, even though I still can't get the original post up fro TTIC. I've gotten some great recommendations, so tomorrow I'll try 'em out. I shant be doin' any experimenting at 10:40PM!


Here is my project for this week's Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge! This project is extra special because it's for my husband and it's my first challenge as a TTIC Guest Designer!!! Again, it's supposed to be about the Summer. Please go to http://www.twilighttuesday.com/ for the whole story. I will try to repost it tomorrow... I made this card for Gene (please read why in the post below). He hasn't even seen it yet, or know that I was making it... so surprise Babe!!! The outside of the card simply says "Remember..." and, sorry folks, but the inside is private! :} I used real sand from Nix's sandbox and this adorable Adirondack chair stamp that I have. Inks created the look of the sky, the sea, the sand, and the sun. I used an ivory cardstock for the card itself (I'm really into ivory lately... I don't know why!) in order to keep the tones muted. I'm so please with how it came out. I just hope that Gene likes it! I guess I'll find out after he reads my blog! So, I guess that's it. Please make sure that you go to http://www.twilighttuesday.com/ to see all of the other wonderful projects!

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!
