DICC #16: Tiffany’s itinerary

Hello bloggy friends! It’s time for another Desert Islands Crafters Challenge! Have you been playing along with us? Here’s the scoop. Every 2 weeks, we will give you an itinerary to follow…as if you were stranded on an island and had to work with these items. The itinerary will have 10 things on it…you need to use at least 3. This time around, I managed to use 5. The items I used will have a “*” next to it. Here’s the itinerary.

Tiffany’s Itinerary

1. Lined Paper*

2. Books

3. Chalk*

4. Pencils

5. Tape*

6. Ruler

7. Name Tag

8. Lunch Money

9. Plaid School Uniform*

10. Apple for the Teacher*

I used School Girl Betty from Simply Betty Stamps for this. I colored her with markers, then inked and chalked the edges. I even chalked on top of Betty, to dull the colors down a bit, since my apple paper is so distressed looking.

My tape is from Heidi Swapp…it’s really old. The apple paper is from DCWV (also old).

I was going to put a big “S” on the card somewhere…but I thought it best to omit it and use a more fitting letter when I decide who is going to receive it.

This was a fun itinerary! It made me think…that’s the best part of a challenge! I hope you will join in. Please visit the rest of the DICC gals on the Blog. I also have all the gals listed on my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

PS: Thank you to all of you that said such sweet things about Phoenix’s card on Tuesday. He got such a kick out of hearing those comments. He wants me to put more of his creations up on my blog! He plans on making specific projects for it! :) I love crafting with my little boy!

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!
