Teen Scene Halloween Preview!

Greetings! I took a few days off from bloggy land because my family and I went on a wonderful vacation to Pennsylvania. We did not want to come home. But, life was calling…and so was this fabulous new release from Simply Betty Stamps! You are going to LOVE this collection. Today we are previewing 3 images, and on Tuesday, we will be showing the rest and they will be available for sale starting then as well!

First, I bring you Mummy London. She’s awesome. From her beautiful hair, to her sneaky little kitty…

Isn’t she great? Don’t you just wish your hair was that fabulous? I used a new punch I just scored from EK Success on the top and bottom of the yellow cardstock. And I used some twill ribbon that I painted some Walnut Gold Glimmer Mist on.

I colored London’s Skin with Copics, her hair and accessories with watercolor markers, and everything else is done with Distress Inks. I used Antique Linen, Vintage Photo and Pumice Stone (for her cat). I am very happy with how it all turned out. :)

Ok…here’s a little secret…I don’t know how you print out your digis, but I try to squeeze as many on a sheet that I can. Which is great usually, but sometimes I want a nice big rectangle around my image. Well, another image was a wee bit too close to this one, so it messed up the bottom. I couldn’t get a straight line without cutting off the bottom of the image. And we just can’t have that! So. I decided to use the twill. But having it straight across wasn’t interesting enough for me, so I bumped it using Glue Dots. Ugly edge is gone and is now replaced with something cool!

Now…I’d like you to say “Hello!” to Igor Miller. Don’t be scared! He’s really very sweet.

Isn’t he a cutie? I colored him in with my watercolor markers and…get this…Crayola markers too! All of the browns are Crayolas…from the Multicultural set. I have that set in pencil as well…and I knew I had to get the markers when I visited the Crayola Factory a couple of weeks ago. Here’s a close up.

I like his skin…it’s layers of green and I think E000 from Copic. All of the other bitty stamped images you see, including the sentiment, is from Inkadinkado.

Today the Simply Betty gals are also previewing Evil Queen Rio. So you must be sure to check her out on the rest of the DT’s blogs. I hope you have enjoyed my little preview. Please be sure to come back tomorrow. You are going to go NUTS when you see the next few images!!! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!!!

These are fabulous!! I love your idea about the twill ribbon...I have the same issue. I use special paper for my Copics, so I want to print as many digis on one sheet as I can. LOL Great tip. =D I love your coloring and shading on both cards! That new punch you have is fantastic!! Very cool cards.

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!
