Color Challenge #4: Jacob's Colors

So here it is… my last Color Challenge for Twilight Tuesday. It was short lived, but it sure was fun!!! I wanted to make a color story for Jacob. Here it is and what I wrote on the TTIC Blog:

Ok Wolf Girls! This one is for you!!! This challenge is "Jacob's Colors!" We have russet for his skin/fur, back for his long locks (until he chops it off of course!), and olive... well, not every color has to have a meaning! And I really thought that olive green looked great with the other 2 colors! So, have fun and enjoy! You do NOT have to make a Jacob project (although I KNOW that Beth would be thrilled if you do!), make anything you want using these 3 colors. :D

Please join in for Twilight Tuesday's last Color Challenge! I am so glad that so many of you got so excited about these challenges. I am sorry that they have to end...  But, hopefully we will find each other in other challenge blogs! Can't wait to see what you create!

PS: I want to give an extra special Thank You to my wonderful friend Julie who helped me create these stars. There is NO way I could have done them without her amazing help. I love ya girl!!! I hope we can collaborate more in the future!!!

Here is my card featuring one of The Greeting Farm cuties. I know a lot of you use this one as Emmet, but I see him as Jacob as well.

Sorry about the shadow on the bottom. I wanted to keep this card kind of simple. Jacob doesn’t need a lot of decorations. He is just a guy who wears his emotions on his sleeve. You know how he’s feeling at all times. He doesn’t hide behind a smile. He’s just Jake. Take him or leave him.

He’s colored in with colored pencils. I think he looks so handsome!

The paw print and the “Jacob” is from Artful INKables. The torn paper is Black Magic Coredinations. I had embossed the paper with a Fiskars plate. See the dots? Subtle I know… but that’s how I liked it for this card. So there it is. My last TTIC Color Challenge. What do you think? I think you should go and make something! But first, our Design Team has fantastic projects to display for this  challenge – please go and check them out!

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!
