Day 24 of 31 Days: Simple Ghosts

Hello! Thanks to all of you that told me I should get some rest. Maybe November 2nd! ;) I am sure that you are all exhausted too. But, this sure has been a lot of fun, right? Today, I am bringing you another one of my "simple" cards. I had a thought today...I thought it may be fun to do a bunch of these for several major holidays, and sell them as a giant pack on Etsy. What do you think? 4 fr Halloween, 4 for Christmas/Winter, 4 Birthdays, etc. I think that'd be kinda cool! We shall see...

This is another fab stamp from Inkadinkado. I used some white paint, and I applied it with a very high tech tool....my pointer finger. Honestly, it was just too much work to dirty up my brush and then have to worry about washing it off. I just wiped my finger clean with a baby wipe instead. Way easier. Yeah, and lazier.

Look! It's the Momma Ghost and her Baby! I used the same simple border around the card as I did my others. Need a refresher?

This was Card #1 in the set.

This was Card #2. All 3 have movement, which is why I chose the images I did. They seem to fill up more space than they actually take up. They keep your eye moving. I totally need to make a 4th card. I am also thinking that there are still too many things I want to make for the 31 Days, and not enough days left to do it! Ugh! But for now, it's time for you to hop along and visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers. They are all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by! Have a fang-tastic day!

Fab cards!!!!

Love how you used such a high tech industrial type tool. I personally would have ended up with fingerprints where I didn't want them.

Like how there is just a touch of color to the craft it makes it seem extra artsy

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!
