Meet Liberty Betty!

Hello! I have another project featuring one of the new Bettys from Simply B Stamps. Did you see my post yesterday? Betty is doing a very limited, 2 day release for the betty Series 2. You only have until today to snag these cuties in digi form. Then they will disappear until April, when they will be rereleased in rubber only. Plus, there is also a 30%off sale going on right now too! Visit the SBS Blog for all of the deets. But first, here’s Liberty Betty.

So first off, this is not a card. It’s a really big embellishment that I will eventually use on a scrapbook page. It’s really big! It’s almost 9” tall by over 4” wide. Being from New York , I immediately gravitated towards this Betty. I also used the newest Deconstructed Sketch, though I changed it up a wee bit.

I was worried at first about whether or not I could get the color of her dress correct, but luckily, I had a few Copics in my small arsenal that were just purrfect! And I thought that she just had to have red hair. It’s so stunning against that green!

I used Black Lightening Brilliance ink (which has a beautiful glimmer) for the “New York” and around a lot of my edges. I also used Mustard Seed Distress Ink along with a Crafter’s Workshop stencil for the stars behind Liberty Betty.

My “stamp” sticker is from Mrs. Grossman’s. and I thought it worked so well with this sketch and super huge embellishment I’ve made. Now I need to either find some of my NYC pictures, or just make a trip in! I think I’d rather just go in for a visit, since I haven’t been there in a while!

Please be sure to visit the SBS Blog for all of the info on this release, and on the sale. 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!
