Growing Love: Version 2

Miss me? I needed a few days away from Blogland. Yesterday was the 10 Year Anniversary for my Dad’s passing…and I thought I was going to blog about him…but I just couldn’t. I just couldn’t.

But today is a new day…and I am sharing this card with you because this is the time that I conceived both of my babies. I thought it was appropriate to show it to you now. This is my second version of Sweet Pea Stamps’ Growing Love.

I colored her in completely with Distress Inks. I love how it turned out.

I used a wee bit of Platinum Liquid Pearls, just for some dimension. You can click on either of the pictures to see them bigger.

I am very happy with this card. I love the color palette, I am going to be remaking it a few times, as I know a number of lucky ladies that are expecting! But, I do have some other versions in my head too. I just love this image. It is definitely one of my favorite Sweet Pea images!

Short post today… But I think the pictures say enough for themselves! Have an inspiring day!

Ah hon, you card is just beautiful. Big HUGE hugs to you girl, you've told me a million times that it will always stay with you and I have to wholeheartedly agree. I wish I had magic words to make it better but there just aren't any. But I think the pain just means that the love is still really strong and that's a very good thing. Hang in there girl!

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!
