Day 28 of 31 Days: 4th Tile and an Unfinished Project

Hello! I have the 4th tile in my Dilly Beans Sugar Skulls set, and sadly, an unfinished Bombshell Stamps pendant.  Allow me to show you my tile...

As you'll see in a moment, I reversed the image. I didn't want two of the "same" I thought reversing this one was a good fix.

I colored this using Copics and Sharpie markers. I colored it using pretty different colors from the other Sugar Skull, again, to make it feel more different.

Wanna see the whole set????????????????????????????????????

I am soooooo happy with it! I don't know if I can sell it....or, maybe I'll just make a second set for myself and sell this one. What do you think of the 4 together?
As you are aware from a post I had the other day, Bombshell Stamps came out with 2 awesome new sets. Indian Princess and Indian Warrior. I made started to make a pendant with one of the images from Indian Warrior.

So. I had her colored, cut and ready to go. Then she disappeared. Up and flew away by her pig tails. So, at the last second (I'm having a busy weekend), I had to recolor her and try to get her n the pendant. Well, at least she's sitting on it, right?

The plan is as follows... I am going to mount her on to the chipboard oval that I colored with Distress Inks. Then, I will punch a few holes. One for a jump ring, and a few for some dangles. Then, I will probably be adding some of the fabulous Bedazzlers that Kathi sent me, and emboss the whole thing. At least, that's what I envision.
I apologize for not getting this pendant done. But, if you go to the next stop on the Bombshell Hop, which is Susie, you are sure to see not only something complete, but something fabulous. Here is the full hop list in case you get lost along the way.

What a gorgeous set, I can see why it would be hard to part with them. I have that issue when I make something as well. Thank you for sharing a part of you.

Your coaster set is gorgeous. I think you should keep it and make another two sets. One for Kelli and one for me.

I love the start to your Indian Warrior pendant. I'm sure it will be gorgeous when done.

I love the coaster tile set. I think you should make a bunch and sell them (and of course keep a set for yourself).

The pendant you are making, looks gorgeous already! Can't wait to see it finished.
Steph said…
Your set of coasters is just fabulous, you should definately keep a set :) Can't wait to see the finished pendant, she's a lovely image.

Your tiles are to die for! I love them all and they make a wonderful set. I can see why it would be hard to part with them. Definitely make a second set and keep whichever you like best and sell the other :) The start of your bombshell pendant looks great. I know it will be fabulous when you are finished with it!

Your set of tiles are Fantastic. Such great images and colours, you must keep them.
Fabulous tiles, they came out perfectly, great job on your pendant too!
Sharon Sahl said…
Your tiles are wonderful together and I'm torn about whether to keep or sell. It's always nice to get stuff out there to see whether there's a market but sometimes even when I was going to make 30 of something, I wanted to keep the prototype!
I am loving your tiles. I like the entire set.

I am anxious to see the BS pendant finished. Hurry, I wanna seeeeeee.

Great colors..copics and sharpies made a beautiful impacf
Very fun Halloween tiles!
And I know just what you mean about your princess image taking sudden leave from the stamping table. I thought that only could happen to me! She will make a great pendant for sure.

Happy Anniversary .. but stay safe over there!

Please tell me how you made these tiles you prob have it but my email is I would appreciate it. Stay safe!

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!
