Little Edward Card

Ok, so I’m sure that many of you had seen the card I made for the extra TTIC challenge last week. If not, then go to last Wednesday’s blog to check it out! I had mentioned that I had already colored in another Edward image from The Greeting Farm that I also wanted to use in a card. Well, I finally got a chance to finish it this weekend. Here he is!

IMG_5632 Excuse the shadow. It’s dark out now, and I just wanted to get this post up… so I had to take the photo in crummy light. But ain’t he cute???

IMG_5633 Here’s a close up. See those numbers? Those are the pencil color’s identifying numbers for his hair. I didn’t want to forget which I used, and I am a huge Paint Chip fanatic (you should see some of the cards I made with Paint Chips! Hmmmm, another blog post for another day), so I decided to actually attach the colors to the card! This way, I’ll always know what I used! I had planned on keeping this one anyway. Plus, you may notice a line going down poor little Edward’s face. I am an ass. I should know by now that 10:30 PM is NOT the time I should be crafting! I was slicing a piece of the denim paper and Woopsie!. Cut the poor fella nearly in half.

IMG_5634 Another close up, showing off the other stamps that I used. Hey Julie! That’s the “e” from the blog candy I won from you! It’s rad! So, besides my ridiculous screw up with my paper trimmer, I love how Edward came out. When I had first seen this stamp online, this was exactly how I pictured him being colored. I think he’s so cool. And I am totally inspired to color him in lots of other ways… Stay tuned!

Oh, and by the way… You MUST(!!!) check my blog tomorrow! I am creating this week’s Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge!!! How cool is that?!?!? See ya tomorrow!

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!
