New DICC, Bombshell Challenge, and Scrappy Chick Sketch

Hello! There are a couple of challenges going on that I’d love for you to play along with. The first is the new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge. The second is what would typically be the GDT Challenge from Bombshell Stamps, but Glittery Kate had to fill in for our original GDT’er.  Last, but certainly not least, I used the latest Scrappy Chick Sketch.
This time the latest itinerary from DICC was created by our very own Taylor. Here it is:
Taylor's Itinerary
1. 2 or more patterned papers
2. stars
3. green
4. sparkle/bling
5. kraft
6. polka dots
7. twine
8. stitching (faux or real)
9. 2 or more die cuts
10. stickers
And this is Glittery Katie’s challenge:
“What goes through your mind when you think of love, maybe cherubs, chocolates music and whispering sweet nothings to your honey bun or perhaps something a little darker....broken hearts, tears and thoughts of sweet, sweet revenge
So here's my Valentine challenge to you this month, I want to see what's in your hearts the good AND the bad.
If you like sweet nothings- great but lets see a little bit of your dark side too!!!”

For the itinerary, I used #’s 1, 4, 5, and 6. And of course, I went with the naughtier side of Valentine’s Day!!!
Oh! And here is the link to Cyndi’s sketch. Click HERE for the sketch and deets!

I pulled out my markers once again for this card. I also used Pumice Stone Distress Inks for the edges.

I used watermark ink and then clear embossing powder for the background. I used Bombshell Stamps for the whole card of course, from the Bombshell Angel set and Man’s Ruin.
I do hope you will play along with at least one of these challenges! They were easy to combine! Please visit DICC, The Bombshell Blog, and The Scrappy Chick. 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!
