TTIC #40 Blue

This week’s Twilight Tuesday Challenge has been thought up by Jen. Here is her challenge:

Blue. Edward loves Bella in blue.

"That color blue looks lovely with your skin," he said, watching me. I was surprised; I looked down, flushing, of course.


So this week the challenge is simple... create anything you want focusing on the color blue. Twilight related? Well that's up to you.
Comment challenge... What's your favorite color to wear and why?

So here is a simple little layout that I made of Phoenix and his “Blue.”

IMG_5775 He calls his blanket Blue. He loves this blanket so much. You know how it is when you have a favorite blanket… Well, this is his. And I can’t blame him. It is divinely soft and cozy! Wish it were big enough for me!

IMG_5771 I especially loves when he wraps it around his face! He looks ridiculous and adorable! I kept this layout pretty basic. I didn’t want to add too much “stuff.” Thought it would take away from the simple charm of a boy and his blanket. Used my favorite markers as usual, doodled in some swirls, did a bit of journaling… quick little rub-on in the corner and a title. Plus, mattes and a corner of Coredinations paper. Simple. Cute. To the point.

For the comment challenge… my favorite color to wear??? That is a toughie… although for those of you that actually KNOW me, you’d probably think it’s a no-brainer! I guess my absolute fave would be black. Yes, I am still a goth chic at heart, even though the clothes don’t quite fit yet after having Rhiannon… But they will soon!!! Aside from black, I love to wear Teal. Teal looks good on me. Works real well with my skin and hair. Plus, it’s my fave color. I also love to wear purple and red. Cobalt blue is nice too… Ooh! And for fun, i love to wear flaming hot, obnoxious pink. Faboo! Did I answer the question….?

Phoenix is absolutely adorable in this and I couldn't agree more with keeping it simple. But what I really want to see is you dressed up in your full goth attire!!! You are just so much FUN!!! Obnoxious pink...you need to visit Beth. You too would have a fantastic night out on the town together. LOL

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!
