Since it's Day 3, it's time for Guess the Movie! I have to say, mine is pretty easy. So I'm not even going to give you a hint. Some of the other gals are much trickier though! ;)

For this very famous scene, I used Betty Monroe and the Hollywood Stars Sidewalk. I had SO much fun coloring this! It was actually the first of the 3 that I did. 

I very rarely color blonde hair, and I was rather worried that I would get that distinct Marilyn Monroe color wrong. But I think I nailed it! She was done entirely in Copics. But my background was done in colored pencils and a wee bit of watercolor markers. And I used a film cell stamp from the Bombshell Stamps set, Rise and Shine, on my yellow cardstock.

I must say, that I LOVED doing the hops for the past 3 days. And I am really sad to see it come to an end. But, like most good things...right? I hope that you have enjoyed yourself as well! And snagged some sweet new digis in the process! Below is the entire hop list. Please be sure to stop by everyone's blog to show them some love! And don't forget to Guess the Movies! Thank you so much 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!
