Zombie Fairy

It is snowing outside. A lot. I think we may actually have a blizzard going on here on Long Island! Thankfully, my family is home and the kids are actually napping soundly- at the same time!!!

Remember a couple of weeks back when I made my Fallen Angel card for Haunted Design Houses’s Fallen Angel Challenge? Well, I wanted to share the first card I made with the awesome-tastic stamp I won from Stamp It Crazy! But first, I really want you to click HERE to see Barb’s creation- which I am totally obsessed with and wish I could have as my own. ;}

And here is mine:

I’ll be honest… I just couldn’t get Barb’s card out of my head, so I had a tough time trying to do something different. I loved the idea of making her a zombie! But, since I own the stamp now, I can make her a zillion different ways!!!

I love how her coloring came out. I think she’s beautiful… in a creepy sort of way! See her wings? I used fabric paint for them! I wanted them to look nice and globby (is that a word), to enhance the globbiness of the image itself. I think it worked out great!

Of course I had to use my Martha Stewart drippy punch for this card. I sprayed some Java colored Walnut Ink on my striped background paper, to dull the colors out. The punched paper is made as-is. Cool huh? Love that paper!

Please click on any of the photos to see them bigger. I’d like to remind you that tomorrow Twilight Tuesday will have it’s last Color Challenge. I know I haven’t talked about the end of my beloved TTIC. Quite honestly, I don’t want to. I am pretty miserable about it, and honestly there is nothing I can do. It’s not up to me, and I am just so grateful that I have gotten so much out of that amazing group. So, rather then dwell on my sadness, I am moving forward. But more about that at another time. For now, just enjoy the sweetness (?) of my pretty Zombie Fairy!

Globly is a word... in my world anyway. Love how you worked her up. And I know she is laying in wait for you to "work her up" again! the Oz

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!
