The World Is…

What is The World to you? Does it change from day to day? Lately, The World has been a little dark to me. But, I am trying to brighten things up for myself. I got something in the mail the other day that is certainly helping in that quest. I received Smeared Ink’s  Morbidly Adorable Tarot Set 1 from Misty Benson. I LOVE this set!

Misty-Benson-Tarot-Set-1-wm

Isn’t it fabulous? Even if you’re not into the tarot, you have to agree that these images are spectacular! The World really inspired me, and is just begging for bright, happy colors. And to be honest, this card made me happy. Which is exactly what I needed!

You know this makes you smile! Aren’t those the sweetest skeletons you’ve ever seen? I thoroughly enjoyed coloring this image in.

 

I used Twinkle H20’s and colored pencils to color the image in. If you click on the image, you’ll be able to see it bigger…and all the pretty twinkle!

If you look at the dragon, you can see a lot of shimmer. I used a lot of cool papers and minimal embellishments, because I didn’t want to take away from the beautiful image.

I hope this card made you smile! It certainly brightened my World. Have an inspiring 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!
