Tea with the Faeries

I have been working with a stamp from Faerie Song Art Stamps. They have been generous enough to supply the Smeared and Smudged Design Team with some of their wonderful stamps, as well as sponsor one of our contests. Please take a peek at their stamps! Some of them are really incredible!

This is a very whimsical card (that’s what my husband said at least!). I think it came out really sweet. I started off by coloring the image, and then found the paper to coordinate after.

I like the tiny faeries coloring the tea cup! Aren’t they cute? I colored the image in with my watercolor markers, and then added some Diamond Stickles to the wings. Sorry- it’s a little tough to see, but it looks really pretty!

The green patterned paper (DCWV), also has a touch of glitter in it. It ties everything all together I think. The design on the tea cup works really well with the pattern on the paper. Added a nice bright pink grosgrain ribbon for a little more pop and voila!

Now I am off to try and finish my card for the latest Macabre Monday challenge! Peace, Love and Vampires!

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!
