Spaghetti Christian and the Rocky Horror Picture Show

Well that’s a weird combo in my title, huh? Today I have 2 projects. One is from the new Teen Scene Kitchen Fun line from Simply Betty Stamps, and the other is for the latest Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls challenge. Let’s start with Christian.

I just loved coloring him in. I think it was so cool to use such a small amount of color. Especially when you compare yesterday’s project to today’s. What a huge difference!

Doesn’t that plate of spaghetti look delish? Once again, I colored this image with my watercolor markers. The sentiment is also from Simply Betty. I got the layout for my card from this month’s Smeared & Smudged Sketch Challenge.

I unearthed that cool gingham paper that I thought was just perfect for this card, and then I kept the embellies simple…a couple of gold paper clips. They reminded me of a waitress’ order book.

Now for Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls. The challenge for the next 2 weeks is Repo the Genetic Opera vs. The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Honestly, I’ve never seen Repo. And, I’m not a fan of Rocky Horror, although I love Tim Curry. So, I went with a more subtle nod to RHPS…

This fabulous Corset Heart is from Strange Skin. Again, colored with watercolor markers, and 2 of Sakura’s Star Dust pens as well.

Isn’t it purdy? I thought it was just right for this challenge! I used a few different scraps of paper, and of course, my beloved Drippy Goo punch from Martha Stewart. Take a close look…I used 2 different reds. Makes the goo stand out more. Especially if you make sure to not line up the drips.

You can see on the lacing that I used one of my Star Dust pens. Super sparkly! I adhered my cabochons on to the card with Silver Stickles.

That’s all for today! I hope you’ll be back tomorrow for the latest Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop. Please be sure to pop over to the SBS Blog, and the Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls Blog too. 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!
