Day 21 of 31 Days: Tile #3: Lila

Happy Sunday! It's Day 21 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. Today I am bringing you Tile # 3 from my Dilly Beans Sugar Skull set. Today's Tile features Lila. You've seen me use her once before this month on a black and white card.

She looks so different now that I've used color on her instead of just black, white and gray, right? I used the same techniques to make this tile as I did the others. I really love using the tissue paper to print these images. I think they come out so nice.

Here's a closer shot of the top of the tile. I wanted you to see the colors I used in the flowers ans her eye. I used Copics and Sharpies to color her in. The Sharpies are working better than I had originally expected, though they of course don't blend the way watercolor markers or Copics do.

One more tile to go! I hope you like my set, and are perhaps even inspired to make some tiles yourself. Now it's time for you to hop along to the rest of the Wicked Bloggers. They are all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!

Wow, Lila is even better in color! She's fabulous! I'd say it in Spanish but I don't really know much spanish. I love that Sharpies come in a much wider range of colors now than they used to. I really love how you colored her!

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.
