Inspired by a Peacock…and a Vamp!

Can you be inspired by both and make one project? I say “hell yeah!” First, I was working with Lily (Bitten) one of the brand spankin’ new digis from my wonderful friend Tonya. Click HERE to see the others and buy the set for yourself! Then, Kim, one of my fellow DT members over at Smeared and Smudged has her latest challenge up… be inspired by a peacock! Well, let’s get on with it right???


I made a 6x6 card and used a whole bunch of papers and stamps to create the card. Please click on any of my pics to see them bigger.


Isn’t she beautiful? I love the sexual energy she’s giving off. She reminds me of Bella from the black Dagger Brotherhood. She is colored with my Spectracolor pencils.


And here are some peacock feathers! I used colors inspired by a peacock too. Not so vibrant… I muted it down a bit.


Don’t all of these papers and stamps give you the idea of feathers? Oh! And my lovely sentiment is from some Blog Candy I won from Alex. The stamp is from Sweet Pea Stamps.

I think the card came out really pretty considering all the different patterns I chose to use. And the colors are really chill… Which is just what I’m about to do! Go and chill…! Have a Happy Mother’s Day to all my Mommy friends!

Oooooh, pretttty!!! You did such a beautiful job with this gorgeous image. She is definitely BDB-Bella-like. I just finished the newest BDB today (sniff, sad that it's over) and those characters are on my mind today. :)

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!
