Chef Ariel: Jude and the Rockers Just For Fun!

Greetings! It's time for a new collection from Simply B Stamps! You know the drill, we are going to preview one new image every day this week, and then on Friday, we will have a fun Blog Hop to celebrate this new release! This collection is from the Jude and the Rockers series, and it's called Just for Fun. You are going to love these images! Today, we are sharing Chef Ariel with you.

I always love to color in the images of Ariel. I think it's all about those cool glasses for me! I asked Phoenix for a little advice when it came to coloring the cake. I really didn't want to do white. So He told me his color choices, and I went with them! Doesn't it look yummy?

I used some super cheery and sorbet-colored papers from K and Co. Plus a border punch (that I used on both sides of my border) from EK Success.

Here's a close up of Ariel's glasses. I always color the face an eyes as I normally would, but then I go over the specs with a pale blue. Just to give a bit of a wash of color. Then, I added a few lines of white, to give it some "shine."

Now it's time for you to head over to the SBS Blog to see what the rest of the Design Team is up to. And be sure to check back tomorrow, for another cute and quirky preview! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Oooh. I love her glasses! I'd love a pair with little skulls in the corner.

Great coloring of that image, especially her hair and pants!

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!
