SISC71: Your Favorite Challenge!

This is a fantastic StampInsanity Challenge!!! You get to pick one of your favorite previous challenges, and make a new project with it! Well, since I love so many of the SI challenges, I couldn’t pick just one…so I chose 3! I used #38: It’s All About Me!, #41: Hard Core Hardware, and #69: Goin’ Goth (really…how could I not go with that one?!). I also chose to work with Pierrette, who is still one of my all time favorite images.

First, let me say that I still can’t get purple to photograph properly! It is so frustrating! Because her dress is fabulous and dark, and here it looks washed out and blue. But trust me, it’s a grapey purple.

For challenge 38, I decided to color Pierrette in as if she were me. So, in comes the purple and teal. I opted to not give her funky colored hair (there are times when my hair isn’t dyed!), and wicked makeup.

For challenge 41, I decided to work with some staples. First, I punched some on in the corners of the black cardstock. But, it needed more, so I made a border around the edge of the cardstock as well.

I also added some Mermaid Stickles to the bottom of the card. As far as Challenge 69 goes…I don’t think I need to say much! She’s pretty gothed out (though she is totally more goth in person. Damn purple!). But, add into that the metallic flame paper, the tearing, the hardware, etc…and I’ve got myself a gothed out card.

So what’s your favorite StampInsanity Challenge? I can’t wait to see! But before you go off and start creating a masterpiece, please be sure to visit the rest of the Ward 2 gals! 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!
