Black Dagger Brotherhood- Butch O’Neal Fandom Friday on TTIC

Time for another Black Dagger Brotherhood Challenge! This week we are working with Butch O’Neal. The ex-cop human who not only wears killer threads, but…shall we say…runs with vampires as well! Here’s what my Book Buddy Beth wrote on TTIC:

PhotobucketPhew! Can you believe we are almost halfway through December? And, oh yes – TGIF! Hopefully you have all found some quiet time somewhere to get in a little reading – and better still, I hope you have gotten your hands on a copy of one of the BDB books! This week, we have the challenge based on book #4, Lover Revealed, which tells the story of Butch O’Neal. Read on:

Butch is a man who has lived a hard life. His heart is big, but his head never really lives up to his heart. He’s rough around the edges, and lives his live hard charging, with little regard to his own well-being. And he is always on the fringe – in his family, his job and in life. Then he finds himself coming to the aid of a friend, and his whole universe shifted. His entire destiny was Revealed.

Craft: Capture Butch! He is so unique, this could focus on any facet of his personality or his life!
Comment: How do you feel about Butch? Tell us what you think!!

I gotta be honest, I made kind of a quickie card. But, I made what I had originally thought of doing for our pal Butch.


Picture this… it’s Butch’s Birthday. What does his best bud get him? Red Sox tix! Yup, V bought the human 2 VIP’s to a homegame. How sweet is that? ;}

I got the image from HERE. It was exactly what I was looking for. It’s pretty cool, even though I ain’t no Sox fan!


I used red cardstock and drew on white stitching with a Chalk marker from EK Success. I wanted a reverse ball look. Then I inked the edges a bit with a nice dark blue. Pretty easy!

How do I feel about Butch? He is one lucky guy! Yeah, he had a damn rough life, but in the end… well, lets’ just say Butch has found his true family (wink!)!

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!
