And here is the special bonus challenge for you:

What team do you play for? Team Edward or Team Jacob? Are you still loyal to your original team? Or have you switched sides? Or do you play for both teams now? Let’s show some love for the boys ladies! Fangs or fur, vamp bites or dog breath? Have the trailers for New Moon maybe changed your opinion of who you used to like? Come on now…be honest!

Sincere thanks to goes out to Audra from all of us at Twilight Tuesday. We’re really happy to collaborate with dragonflycurls for this fun challenge!

Our Design Team has played along with challenge today – visit their blogs to see their creations!

So here is my project:

Bella's Lullaby 011 Sometimes, your materials just make the project for you. Sometimes, your materials are just so good, that you don’t really have to do a whole lot of work. That was the case with this card! My awesome stamp from Dragonflycurls along with this piece of scrap paper from who-knows-where practically assembled itself into this really majestic card.

I love how the flourishes remind me of the lion’s tail. The colors, of his mane. Yeah, I’m totally Team Edward… but I do have love for Jacob. Here’s a close-up of my Dragonflycurls stamp:

Bella's Lullaby 010 I stamped it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The wording and shadow I did with my watercolor markers. The rest… well the rest is on the paper! Like I said, with the right combination of materials, your projects can practically make themselves!

So, I am really inspired by this challenge to make more “Team” stuff. Hopefully, I’ll have a chance to do some more fun cards in the vein of this challenge! But for now, this Team Edward card certainly does the job of showing which side I’m on!

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!
