SISC #49: I’m so Touchy-Feely!

It’s time for another fang-tastic StampInsanity Challenge! This week, we groovy Gurlz are challenging you to see how many textures can you incorporate. Have any unique ways to texturize? Here’s my card, featuring one of my fave StampInsanity images (I say that a lot don’t I??? What can I say? They all rawk!), Kassandra.

It’s lumpy and bumpy! I textured the heck outta this card. I started off with the big moon. I used a Fiskars Texture Plate that has stars on it. Then I distressed the edges. I pop dotted it on to blue paper that I crumpled up and then sanded down.

Here’s a close up of Kassandra. I used my watercolor markers and pencils on her. I love her outfit. I want it. I just wish the bod still looked like hers! ;)

As you can see, I added to the texture challenge by tying some fibers through eyelets, and adding a few dots of Liquid Pearls. I used a mess of pop dots on the card as well, for even more dimension.

Now it’s time to check out the rest of the Groovy Gurlz! 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!
