Release Day of Sweet Gothic Kids Halloween

Howdy! It’s release day for Simply Betty Stamps’ Sweet Gothic Kids Halloween line! Today I will be showing you 2 of the last 3 images. This is an adorable collection, and I know it’s going to sell like mad! So let’s take a peek at my creations. First up, is Vampiress Tilly.

Isn’t she fabulous? I love her look, her pose, everything about her! I colored her with my markers, and I am quite pleased with the end result. Isn’t her hair cool?
I’d like you to please take a look see at my background. I was lucky enough to win 2 stencils of my choice from Dreamweaver Stencils, and one of the ones I chose was this beautiful Damask background. I knew it would be purrfect for Halloween! I used it (incorrectly…I kinda made up my own way!) with Perfect Pearls from Ranger. It came out very soft and blurry…but I really like the end result! Next time I plan on using the stencil with paint. Yummy!

Look at her teeny fangs? Don’t you just love her? And now, on to Witchy Wednesday.

I asked for my husband’s opinion for how to color her hair, and he immediately told me to do it like my own. I was trying to get away from doing what I normally do, and I tend to color in my images wth hair similar to mine. But he insisted. He said that she was cute like me, so her hair needed to be like mine. :) So there ya go…she’s got teal and dark brown hair!

I embossed some beautiful rainbow glitter around her…if you click on this (or any other) picture, you can see it bigger. I love Wednesday’s little outfit! I would totally wear it!
So run on over now to the Simply Betty Stamps Store to pick up these cuties for yourself. And please visit the rest of the DT and show ‘em some love. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

I love both of your cards, Alison. How sweet of your hubby to tell you to color Wednesday's hair like yours because you're both cute. Excellent coloring as always & awesome on getting the free Dreamweaver stencils. Woot!

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!
