Trick or Treating with Tiddly Inks and Simply Betty Stamps: Fiery Rio: Day 30 of 31 Days of Halloween

Tomorrow is Halloween!!! I can’t believe it! This month has flown by faster then a witch on her broom! And trust me…I would know! Today I bring you a card featuring Rio from Simply Betty Stamps. I love this little image! She’s so cute but her dress makes her spooktacular!

Fiery-Rio-1 It’s a big card for a little image, but there were so many scraps of paper that I wanted to use…I decided it was best to just put her on a big card.

Fiery-Rio-2

I’ve gotta say, I love how her hair came out. The colors blended so well, and she has perfectly coiffed highlights and lowlights. And this was done with Crayola colored pencils! How cool is that??? Her dress, tights and shoes are done with my Spectracolors, but the rest is all Crayola. See? You don’t need an expensive set of pencils to color well! You can click on any of the images to see them bigger.

I went for a fiery look for Rio. Kinda devilish, kinda sweet. She has such a pretty face! I love this image. And I wish I had this dress!

Fiery-Rio-3

I held the card in my window for this shot… I wanted you to see the fabulous glaze on some of the stars and the foil accents on the red paper. See the shine? I thought that these really added to my Fiery Rio.

So, there’s only one more day! And tomorrow there will be lots of tricks and treats! So be sure to knock on all of the Wicked Bloggers doors! 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!
