The Greeting Farm Relay: Mer Ian

Hey out there! Yes, I am posting on a Sunday… weird, I know, but there is just way to many things going on, so I needed to get this new card up! The Greeting Farm is having this way cool Relay going on. You can go over to their site and download a free digi, and then, if you complete the requirements, you can score up to 5 free digis this week!!! All the deets are on their site. How cool is that? So, I got my butt in gear and used digi #1. His name is Mer Ian, and I just love him!


Ain’t he cute? I kept the card simple, I wanted to highlight the coloring I did on Ian. I used my Spectracolor pencils, and I think he came out great! I was channeling my inner Donna…and I think it worked!


I just had to add some Stickles, and a couple of baby pearls (thanks Terra!), plus of course some pop dots to give the card some nice dimension.


And here is a close up of my coloring. I have so much fun doing this!!! Can you tell? Click on any of the pics to see them bigger! So, now I am looking forward to seeing what the next free digi is! If he/she is as cute as this little guy, it’s gonna be a fun week!

Please remember to check back here tomorrow as I will be issuing the next Twilight Tuesday Scrapbook Challenge! Enjoy what’s left of the weekend!!!

I love the waves! You did a wonderful job with him! And I swear I wasn't trying to be a copycat, but I used purple on my Ian's hair, too.:)

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!
