Funky Potters Preview Day 3: Ron, and a Burtonesque Dolls Challenge!

Welcome to the Day 3 Preview of Simply Betty Stamps' Funky Potters! Today we are debuting Ron, who is a character that I really like (in the 1 book I read and 2 movies I saw!).In addition to showing you Ron, The Burtonesque Dolls have a new challenge for you! We challenge you to use any image, and apperate it into a Burton film! The Dolls and I will all be using Ron, but you can use any image you like, in any Burton film,


So I decided to have Ron apperate into Ed Wood. I think it's pretty funny...do you see why???


I colored Ron entirely with colored pencils (go pencils!), and had only Ron himself in color. His clothes are all in blacks and grays...in true Ed Wood fashion. Do you see them? The tiny screw brad and the screw paper? Ron said "Uh-Oh!" because he's "screwed!" Or, he "screwed up!" tee hee! I got a good laugh out of it.


I had a really fun time making this card! I do hope you will join me and the rest of The Dolls with this challenge! And, be sure to visit the rest of the gals all this week to see our other preview creations. Friday is the big day! The day that you can buy the Funky Potters for yourself! Thanks for stopping by. 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!
