FHF Eclipse Pop Culture Challenge & Artful INKables Challenge #4

Can you believe it??? It’s almost time! Time for the release of Eclipse!!! I can hardly wait!!! As I have mentioned before, I am seeing a triple feature starting at 6:30 on Tuesday night! It’s gonna be great!!!

Today Erica issued us the latest Pop Culture Challenge for Friends Having Fun. And it’s all about Eclipse!!! Make something Twi-Inspired! Easy-peasy! Plus, I of course had to partake in the 4th and final challenge for Artful INKables too! Their challenge was to create anything but a card. Cool! So…I made a bookmark. I am really into making these lately! And check this out…I didn’t use ANY paper!!!

It’s tough to see all the detail in this pic…feel free to click on it to see it bigger! I used 2 Artful INKables stamps for this bookmark. And a whole lotta ink! Here’s a close up.

AI4-2

I used just a heavy weight chipboard for the bookmark, and smudged some Fired Brick Distress Ink on top to make it sorta look like wood. Then I stamped the swirls in Color Box’s Chestnut Roan. Last, I stamped the Fanpire in Black Soot Distress Ink. I felt it needed some flash, so I lightly inked the edge of my bookmark with embossing ink, and sprinkled on some Platinum Embossing Powder. A little flash…not too much!

AI4-3

Then, to top it all off I added this fabulous yarn. That’s from one skein! It has a bit of sparkle in it too.

See? Easy-peasy! Now, since this is the big release week, Artful INKables is also having a huge Twilight Inspired blog hop on Wednesday! Of course, yours truly will be playing along. So be sure to stop by for that! In addition, I have some other wonderful things that are happening this week as far as my little crafty projects go…So please be sure to stop by and say hello! Ooh! And make sure you play along with Friends Having Fun!!! Have an inspiring day!!!

This is great! I'm going to have to copy you and use chipboard for the bookmarks I make. I always have to be so very careful with mine so I don't bend the corners, etc. I've been trying to find some yummy yarn like you use for the tassely thing too and can't seem to find something that I like - suggestions??

This is beautiful! I like the idea of using chipboard too for bookmarks. Have fun seeing the movie, I'm not brave enough to go see it the first week. lol I will wait until next weekend, if I can hold out that long.

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!
