4 Challenges in one!

Post number 2 for today! If you are looking for the latest StampInsanity Challenge, please scroll down to the post below! It’s a great challenge, so don’t miss it!

Now, I don’t really have time to figure out which challenges can go with what from week to week, but for some reason, several of them just fell into place with each other this time around! But before I get into that anymore, let me show you my latest card:

This is the Wild Flower Kids’ version of Alice. Ain’t she sweet? You can nab her over at Paper Craft Planet. The WFK challenge this week is to use Pink and Orange. I don’t know what it is, but lately I am drawn to the citrusy colors (which is so not my normal style!), so I had to play along with this challenge. Plus, my bud over at Smeared and Smudged, Kim, is having a photo challenge at her blog. Click HERE for the deets. The Whimsical Wednesdays blog wants us to create something that reminds us of Spring. The colors in this card are SO very Spring to me! And last, but certainly not least, Friends Having Fun (via Erica) challenges us to do something Alice in Wonderland themed!

Woah! That’s a lot! I really need to know how you mutli challengers keep up with it all!

Here’s a close up of Alice. I didn’t want to make her blonde. I almost gave her pink hair, but I didn’t think she swung that way! So, I kept her a lovely brunette!

Ok, after all the time I spent keeping track of these challenges, I have run out of steam! And, I hear The Girl stirring…nap time is ova!!! Have an inspiring day everyone!

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!
