SBS Halloween Challenge #3: Fabric

It's time for another Halloween challenge, Simply B style! It's never the wrong time for Halloween, so I am excited to share a new challenge with you. By the way, if you are looking for today's Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop, please click HERE. Today's SBS challenge is to use fabric and stitching. Truth be told. I didn't stitch... but I did use some pretty cool Halloween fabric!


I should have taken a pic of a large piece of the fabric...so you could see where I got my inspiration. But it's all 50's style drawings, in black, cream, grays and orange. It's very hip. So, I decided to color in Witchy Wednesday in the same fashion.

I hope you can see all of the shading. It was hard for me to get a good photo, because my grays are so light.I used all Copics for Wednesday, except for the black. That's a watercolor marker. The "Boo" is paper, by the way. From a Martha Stewart paper pad.

This was a fun challenge. To give you a little more inspiration, here is a card I made last year, using Beatrix the Witch.

See the pretty, meshy fabric? I love this card. But now it's time for you to go and visit the SBS Blog to see what some of the other gals have created for this challenge. I hope you will play along with us! 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!
