Gold Digger

Hello! I am so excited to share my first card as a Smeared and Smudged Design Team Member! So for this card I created a project that I have been wanting to make for a while. I’ve blogged about the main stamp once before… you can view it HERE. So take a look at what I’ve made this time around…

I just love the stamp of the woman digging… so many weird creepy things can be made for her. Yeah, ok… maybe she’s gardening…but I just don’t see her doing such a mundane thing! I really want to do a whole series of cards with her. I’ve got several ideas, but I’m open to more! Got any???

Sorry the photo is a little dark… I was trying to get a shot of the Glimmer Mist. Click on the photo to see it bigger!

So, what’s Smeared and Smudged you ask? It’s a alternative, gothic, retro, crazy cool stamping group! There ain’t no cutsey kittens here (not that I don’t love kittens…)! The group has all sorts of awesome categories, like Vamp Kamp, Oh, the Horror!, Perfect Pinups, and Fairy Fantasy. Interested? Stop by and visit! Join the forums and chat with us! Put up some of your own super cool creations! Smeared and Smudged is a pretty new group, so we are all just starting to get to know each other. Needless to say, I am so honored to be a part of this totally rad new group!

Back to my card for a moment… My lovely lady is from Paper Candy. Letter stamps from Martha Stewart. Paper from Basic Grey, EK Success, and Prima. Cauldron from QuicKutz. I used some Gold Glimmer Mist in the background. She is colored with my Spectracolor colored pencils. Oh! And I used Queen’s Gold embossing powder from Ranger.

I think that’s about it! Have an awesome day…I’m gonna go and try to make some Holiday cards now!

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!
