Day 18 of 31 Days: Sugar Skull Tile #2

Hello! Today I am bringing you the second tile in a set I am making with some fabulous Dilly Beans images. I am making a set of 4 coasters, using travertine tiles.

Just as I did with the first tile, I printed the image on tissue paper, and I colored it with markers. I used Copics, and this time, I gave some Sharpies a go. They worked out beautifully.

I applied a few layers of Matte Mod Podge and a few layers of Krylon Matte Acrylic Sealer. I backed the tile with cork so it's really a usable tile.

Have I said it before? I love making these tiles. They are a blast. And totally a conversation piece when you have guests using them. You'll see tile number 3 soon! Please be sure to visit the rest of the Smeared & Smudged Wicked Bloggers, they are all posted in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!

Such a fabulous idea using the tissue. I will have to try that one since I have had nothing but problems stamping direct to tile. Thank you for sharing your art.

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!
