Wicked Wednesday: #37 Lazy Summer

Hello! My friend Jenn has a challenge blog called Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge. I have been wanting to participate, but had not gotten the chance to do so. But I finally found a few minutes! This week, the challenge is Lazy Summer, and it's sponsored by A Day for Daisies, which, though you may be surprised, I absolutely LOVE their images. Not my typical style by any stretch, but there is something so sweet and magical about their simple lines, and kind faces. I happened to have an image of theirs colored up for a while, so I decided this was the perfect time to use her.

This little darling is called A New Dress. Isn't she precious? I colored the image with mostly pencils, but I used a couple of watercolor markers on her dress.

My sentiment is from Inkadinkado. And I made the flowers using the same Tim Holtz die that I used on my card yesterday. I have a feeling I am going to get a LOT of use out of it!

Phoenix helped me pick out my papers...he really loves to do that. And I really like his choices. I hope to get to play along with Wicked Wednesdays again very soon. 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!
