HDH051 - Netherworld Nymphs

I once again found time to play along with the creeptastic Macabre Mondays of Haunted Design House. You should all know by know how much I love these challenges…and I am always so sad when I can’t play. But, there was no way I was going to pass this one up! The challenge this week is Netherworld Nymphs. “Images of feminine nature spirits from the darkside.  Goddesses, sprites, mermaids, pixies, fairies or fay... as long as they look slightly sinister ;)” Umm hello??? Can you say right up my “Ali???”

Netherworld-Nymph-1

I used a stamp that I had actually one for a Macabre Monday Challenge. Did ya know that I have won TWICE now??? Go me! Anywho…this ultra fab image is from Stamp It Crazy. I just love her. Senti is from Technique Tuesday. I made this card for my BF Lisa. Her Birthday was yesterday and she just moved from Michigan to Illinois, so she’s got a lot going on. I have truly been thinking about her a lot lately.

She is colored in with my Watercolor Markers (no colored pencils this time, folks!), and just a touch of white gel pen on her skirt. Click on the pics for a bigger view! I must admit…I was very inspired by Barb’s original version of this image. I loved her colors ad the little dots she put everywhere. So I did my own version of dots…I made more of an upwards dash with my markers…and I made a loose representation of a heart around my sweet fay creature.

Now take a looky here…she the sparkle? You may need to enlarge the pic to see ‘em. That’s actually IN the paper! It’s one of my faves from Prism. I use it when I need things to be a bit fancier. And for this lovely image…fancy is good! You can see the sparklies in her skirt, as the marker doesn’t color over them.

I just need to mention that there have been a lot of fang-tastic goings-on at HDH lately. A brand spankin’ new DT, that kicks some serious ass, preview for upcoming Macabre Mondays, and some hauntingly delicious posts from the DT. If you haven’t been over there lately (shame on you!), then you best be gettin’ over there. With less then 80 days till Halloweenie, it’s time to get your creep on! Have an inspiring and spooky day!!!

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!
