XO: Kenny K Challenge 26: Love You

Hello! I took a bloggy day off yesterday because it was my Birthday!!! Yup! I turned 33 on 1/11/11. I thought that was pretty cool. Anyone out there into numerology? Maybe you can give me a head’s up if all of those numbers mean anything! :) On to my card…

A few weeks ago, Kenny K had a contest to name some new images. I was lucky enough to be one of the chosen ones! I bring you…Harley Ryder!

Isn’t she cool? I love her little outfit! Think of all the color combinations you can do! Anyway, this week’s Kenny K Challenge is Love You. Harley is perfect for the challenge!

She is colored up with my pencils, and though it’s tough to see, I used a lot of metallic silver, so she’s super shiny. I sat her on a brick wall that I embossed using my Fiskars Texture Plates.

I just had to use some of my foiled flame paper from EK for this card, ‘cause you know this chick loves some flames! I also used some stud swilrs from Prima, and drew in some swirls with Stickles. The “XO” is done with Inkadinkado’s Twilight font.

Hope you liked my card! 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!
