StampInsanity Challenge #19

It’s time for a sketch challenge with the Groovy Gurlz of StampInsanity!

SISC19

But instead of a card…I made a tag!

Roder-Tag-1

I used the oh-so-handsome Roder as my subject this week. He’s just so rockin’!

Roder-Tag-3

And of course, I broke out my colored pencils! I also used my Coluzzle for the circles and rectangle. I know! I just love using my older tools! I hate letting them just sit in a drawer unused.

Roder-Tag-2

And how about that yarn??? Isn’t it fabulous? I’ll never learn how to knit a sweater, but I will always find something to do with all of those wonderful skeins of yarn that I have!

Now go and check out what the rest of the Groovy Gurlz are up to this week!

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!
